Product: The Lord's Prayer Lesson Pack
Price: an ebook. Normally #39.99 but currently on sale for $19.99. Meant for teaching a Sunday School Class or similar.
Age Range: My son is Seven years old. This study was great for his age. I could see using this with children 5-10 years old. With modifications you could use it for older children as well.
This is what you get:
Two object lessons that will grab kids’ attention and really get them to understand the importance and the value of the Lord’s Prayer!
Two games that are fun and will help kids understand each part of the Lord’s Prayer!
Three crafts that reinforce your teachings on the Lord’s Prayer – with these craft projects you won’t just be sending kids home with a craft, you’ll be sending them home with a message!
Songs that are designed for you to incorporate easily into your lesson — even if the only instrument you play is the spoons! (I put the Lord’s Prayer to a well-known song in the public domain so that the tune will be easily recognizable and teachable.)
Two snack projects that will help you reinforce the message, only this time using great-tasting food – you’ll be able to show your kids how things like Graham Crackers relate to prayer … which proves how God’s word is relevant to everything we do, including eating!
Two worksheets that help kids visualize all the concepts involved in the Lord’s Prayer!
Plus, there’s even a science lesson that shows kids how our prayers work in heaven … and a meditation lesson that will help kids put thoughts and images to the prayer to make it that much more meaningful!
How We Used It
The good and the well...Not so good....
For instance, the lesson where I'm to have a helper... um... I have one child, no assistant, so having a helper wasn't going to happen for me. And the lesson was difficult (though not impossible) to do without a helper, just required some brain power on my part. The rephrasing of the Lord's Prayer was difficult for us. Some of the alternatives didn't make a lot of sense for us and we weren't sure where to fit them in.. BUT on a positive note, that lack of surety gave us ample opportunity to say "I don't know what fits, what do you think might be something that YOU could say that might fit here?" So that was good.
One of the crafts we worked hard at doing but just couldn't figure it out. My crafty boy tried hard but well... It just didn't turn out the way it was supposed to. Not entirely sure why as we did follow instructions....
BUT I LOVED a couple parts of this lesson pack. The whole Oreo cookie with figuring out what prayer was... that clicked really well for me and my son. The Wordsearch went over well and it was an excellent opportunity for us to talk about what the different words meant. We spent an enjoyed 15 minutes talking our way through the search.
This Lesson Pack did do what I wanted it to: It gave us the opportunity to learn more about the Lord's Prayer but more particularly to just talk about what prayer is all about. Our focus was not on memorization of the Lord's Prayer but on really understanding what prayer was all about. Not quite the intention of the Lesson Pack, but it's how it worked for us.
