Curriculum for the Teacher!

Mischief in Gramma Cherbear's Den

Teachers may add their own creative skills and special touches. You can use snacks, play games, select music and/or use a study of the people in the Bible chosen by God to teach this lesson. At Calvary Kids Church, we will be having our church drama team present a skit with some of the lessons. Each week is different. Be creative and capture their attention. Remember they will be getting to know the Critters, their personalities, and be able to relate to them as time goes on.

Greet new members and introduce them to the class and the Critters.

Open the class with a prayer.

Read the Bible Verse for the day!
The Bible Says:
" Do to other the same way you want them to do to you." Luke 6:31
Teach the children to respect the property of others. To be careful not to destroy or be careless with things that do not belong to them. When we love others with God's love, we do not want to hurt them in any way. Help them say "no" to destructive behavior and "yes" to gentle, and kind actions.
Talk with the children:
I am sure you have been tempted to join in mischief making. It's a problem we all face. But mischief is never a good idea. It becomes worse when others are hurt. God has given you His Holy Spirit to help you to do what is right. He does not want you to behave badly to other people. He wants you to treat others the way you want to be treated. Always think, "What would Jesus do?"
Teach the children:
When other people do not respect our things we get upset. When they hurt us we feel sick in our heart. God does not want us to harm others. We should think before we act. We should ask how we would feel if we were the target of mischief making. Making the wrong choices will lead to others not trusting us. People will know us by what we do. God will help us have His Great Love for other people.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Mischief in the Den
It's a sad day for Gramma Cherbear's Critters. The Kid Cave has been ransacked. Holes have been scratched into Gramma Cherbear's chair. Her favorite tea set is broken. The Critters will try to clean up before she returns. Joshua suspects it was Rick and Randy Raccoon up to some mischief making. Or maybe the Badger Brothers! They are known as the Kid Cave Forest mischief makers.
Repeat today's Bible verses.
When harm comes to others we can use the Love of Jesus to help them. If we speak kind words or help repair the damage that mischief makers cause, we will bring joy back into someone broken heart. We might stop the mischief of others if we refuse to join in their "not so fun" games.

Worship God with music.


Use crafts, games, puzzles, hidden pictures, word search, mazes, and books to further emphasize the current weeks' teachings. We are using the Bible Shapes Activity Book this week.
