Introducing a brand new children’s ministry curriculum pack from Awana. This new curriculum comes fully loaded with teaching book, large colorful posters, stuffed animal puppets, shirts, vests, a bag, plus lots more, including stickers, awards, and pens.
The teaching book has Biblical stories as well as real-life modern stories with activities, questions, and review pages. Teachers and families can work together to teach young children in the Awana Cubbies age group, probably best suited for pre-k and kindergarten.
The book has colorful pictures of modern-looking people with whom young children can relate from their worlds. The Biblical stories coincide with the modern stories so children can learn a Bible story and apply the concepts to a modern event.
The large fluffy animal puppets can be used to tell the stories and give children a visual of something to see. Teachers can use the puppets as the storytellers. Young children love to hear stories “told” by puppets and other voices from their regular teacher’s voice. Very imaginative.
The kit also includes collared polo shirts for teachers and t-shirt for children and teachers. There are stickers, notecards, and pens included as well.
This teaching kit has all Christian education teachers and families need to teach a series to young children. However, one word of advice: It is best to teach Biblical principles directly from the Bible, not from a study or lesson book. Teachers must allow children to see them reading the story from the actual Bible to give the Biblical principles validity that they are true Christian Godly principles.
I recommend this curriculum for enhancing and supplementing Christian education lessons. There are many items included in the kit that children can “see” the lesson and Good News.
