Level One Lesson Plan: Exploring God’s Greatest Commandments, Part 2 (of 5)

Note to parent or teacher: This 45- to 60-minute lesson plan is the second part of a five-part series of lesson plans that highlight the various aspects of the lesson objective “God’s Law of Love” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: God’s Law of Love-1a–h).

ReadLove, the Greatest Commandment, Part 2: Worship God, Not Things.”

Discuss together how when we worship God, we draw close to Him through praise and thanksgiving, and we are then able to reflect more of His loving ways in our lives.

  • Bring out that God wants us to have the things that we need and also things that we enjoy, but these things are not what fill our lives with love and joy; that is what God does for us.
  • Examine an experience your child had of focusing on a desire to have something to the exclusion of being kind to others. Did they find joy in that? You might also find it helpful to share an experience you’ve had along these lines as well so the child doesn’t feel singled out, explaining that it’s something we all must take notice of in our lives.
  • Discuss experiences you and your child have had of putting love for God and others first and how things worked out.

Read Manifest God’s Love.”

Read An Important Race.” (An older version can be found here.)

Pray the first prayer of “Pray a Way: Forgiveness” in relation to a disappointing experience; for example, someone breaking or losing one of your toys or hindering a fun event you were looking forward to. Showing forgiveness in such a situation is one way of worshipping God and not things.

Read Bible Adventures with Joe Key: A Dream and a Prophet.” Because of his closeness with God, Daniel was blessed with great wisdom. Ask your child if he or she can think of a time when Daniel and his friends followed God’s ways instead of the way man views things. (Suggestion: Read from a children’s Bible the story of Daniel 1:3–20 when Daniel and his friends declined to eat the king’s fancy foods and would only eat clean and healthy foods such as vegetables.)

Read Bible Adventures with Joe Key: The Temple Episode” and the full story about what Jesus did in the temple in Matthew 21:12–13 and Mark 11:15–17. Jesus always put love for God and others as His main focus, and He was upset when the poor were taken advantage of by these sales of material goods in the temple.


*

Read Love, the Greatest Commandment, Part 3: Honor God’s Name.”

Explain to your child that part of showing our love and respect for God is by only using the names of God (God, Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit) in a positive light—God’s names that we and others can call on for the help we need in life.

  • If your child has heard others use God’s names as swear words, talk about how to react. Explain that we shouldn’t take part and imitate others doing so, but we don’t need to feel compelled to correct others for it. Discuss ways to react that will not alienate someone they might hear using God’s name as a swear word. Explain that the best testimony is to continue to personally love Jesus and let His love shine through us in our deeds and loving interactions with others.
  • Another way to use God’s name in vain is to live in ways that hurt others while bragging about knowing Jesus. For example, bullying other kids and saying that Jesus cares more about you than them; or talking about Jesus’ love for others, but then being disrespectful to people. We’re responsible to do our best to be a reflection of God’s nature.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Having Right Priorities.”

Read Meals with Jesus: She Showed Great Love.” (Your child might enjoy the accompanying coloring page and 3D picture.)

Read Acting God.” Your child can try this out with “‘Acting God’ Supplement.”

Talk about things your child does and things they see others and you, his or her parents, do that show God’s love for people and are therefore ways of honoring God’s name.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: You Are Capable

Note to the parent or teacher: Here is a 20- to 30-minute lesson plan that covers the lesson objective, “Learn various skills appropriate to one’s age.” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Learning and Study Skills-1c)

To begin, talk with your child about skills and academic subjects they are endeavoring to learn. Choose one or two of the more challenging skills or subjects for them to focus on as you go over this class together.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Persevering to Gain Skills.”

Talk about how important it is to not give in to discouragement and quit before reaching the goal. Discuss how thinking of giving up when something is difficult will make it harder to gain the new skill. Discuss positive ways to approach the learning experience.

Tell them about a skill you gained because you didn’t give up, even when you were discouraged with your progress. Point out how you gained confidence for that skill or subject by continuing to study and practice in order to attain to the desired goal.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Achieving Goals.”

*

Discuss with your child how both concentration and not giving up are keys to mastering a subject or skill and are necessary for reaching goals in life.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Concentration.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Stick with It.”

*

Discuss with your child how when learning a new subject or new skill, one important key to learning is to cooperate with the teacher. The teacher works hard to help the student gain an understanding of the subject or skill. When students work together with the teacher, following his or her lead, it facilitates learning and also helps to make the learning process more enjoyable.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Appreciate Teachers.”

*

Look at these two examples about how stepping out beyond fear was essential in reaching goals. If your child is being held back by fear of failure, talk about steps to get beyond that. Pray together to ask Jesus for His help in overcoming fear.

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Learning a New Skill.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Have Courage.”

*

Choose and color one of the cards from the set, “Crazily Cool Card Set: Faithfulness.”

Here is a 45-minute lesson plan, divided into two halves, that highlights the lesson objective of learning about God’s power to protect (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: God-1a).

The class is designed so it can be divided into two sessions if you like.

First half:

Read Standing on God’s Word: He Watches over Us.”

Look up Psalm 3:5 for another Bible promise about a good night’s rest.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Angelic Protection.”

Listen to the audio “Fear Thou Not.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Peace in a Storm.”

Second half:

Read Standing on God’s Word: Saving Power.”

Follow this up by reading:

ReadPrayer Results” and “Power to Help.”

Listen to the audio “Therefore Will I Deliver Him.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Safekeeping. Then with your child, discover and discuss the similarities between the verse from this class, Psalm 34:7, and the verse in the “Saving Power” class, Psalm 91:14. (Hint: Reverencing / loving the Lord.)

Conclude by talking about the times Jesus has protected you and your child, both the obvious times of intervention and the unseen times. Then take some time to thank Jesus for His wonderful care!

Listen to I Will Bless the Lord at All Times.” Look up Psalm 34 (KJV) and sing along.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: You Can Be Strong  

Note to the parent or teacher: Here is a 40- to 60-minute lesson plan that covers the lesson objective, “Learn that no problem one experiences is too big, bad, or ugly to take to Jesus; learn of the comfort and strength Jesus gives.” (Christian Life and Faith: A Personal Connection with Jesus: Jesus, Your Best Friend-1c)

Listen to “Audio: Me and You.”

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Heavenly Joy.” After reading this article, talk about possible reasons the girl felt better after prayer.

  • Jesus always answers when we ask for help.
  • By looking to Jesus in prayer, she was relying on His strength and not her own.
  • Because she knew Jesus loves her, it gave her peace knowing she had asked Him for help.
  • (Read the accompanying Bible verse.) Jesus gives us the joy and peace that comes from knowing He understands our needs and will help us.

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Guidance.” Possible discussion points on this article:

  • Joe didn’t know what to do, but he asked Jesus for help because he trusted Jesus to give him a solution.
  • The Bible verse in the article promises that Jesus will give us the guidance we need when we look to Him for it. Ask your children if they can think of times when Jesus gave them the guidance they asked for.
  • Ask your children about times they faced taking part in a game or activity that they don’t agree with. Talk about how Jesus can guide them to solutions. In this case, the solution was suggesting a positive type of play. Sometimes the solution will be to simply not take part and do something else, even if that means playing on one’s own.

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Contentment.” Possible discussion points on this article:

  • Has your child felt disappointment when comparing with a friend’s talent? Talk about it, and discuss the talents your child has.
  • The verse says there is “great gain” with being content. Can your child think of things that can be gained from being content?
    --Instead of comparing, you can be happier by being thankful for your own talents and blessings.
    --When you focus on being thankful for what you have, you are then free to strive to do the most with what you have and often find out it’s far more than you realized.
  • Aimee wishes she could bake as well as Melissa can. Perhaps Aimee could spend time with her mother or another teacher to learn how. Talk about how being content doesn’t mean not striving to gain new talents.
  • How does practicing contentment strengthen a person? What verse from “Strength for the Day” could be applied?

Read Standing on God’s Word: Making Friends.” Possible discussion points on this article:

  • The girl didn’t know anyone, but when the other children invited her to play, she responded by joining in and was able to make new friends. Talk about how that was showing friendliness, like what the Bible verse talks about.
  • Ask your child if they can think of times they have gained friends by being friendly or if they can recall times when they could have been friendlier.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Rising Above.” Possible discussion points on this article:

  • How does the Bible verse in this class apply to what the boy’s reactions were to the events he describes?
  • What helped him be happier?
  • What experience has recently robbed your child of his or her joy? Talk about ways to apply the Bible verse and rise above such an experience.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Strength for the Day” and talk about ways your child can gain strength from each Bible promise.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Building Bridges of Kindness

Note to the parent or teacher: Here is a 40- to 60-minute lesson plan that covers the lesson objectives, “Learn the negative effects of gossip, criticism, and senseless interactions,” and “Learn how to compliment and appreciate others.” (Character Building: Social Skills: Communication and Interaction-1c,d)

Listen to Audio: Love Is of God.”

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Kind Words.” Discuss unkind words and their power. Perhaps you or your child can share a personal experience of saying something unkind to someone, and how you felt disheartened or troubled by having done so.

Now look at a kinder way, and ask your child to recall something nice or encouraging said to them. Have them describe how it made them feel. If you remember your child encouraging someone recently, remind them of that. That will encourage them that you notice, which will help reinforce the value of this lesson.

Listen to Audio: Love Thy Neighbor.”

Read Building Bridges.”

Talk about the quote “People are lonely because they build walls around themselves instead of bridges to reach others.” Relate a time when someone built a bridge to you and when you built a bridge to another person, and tell your child about these experiences. Encourage your child to think of a time when they experienced someone building a bridge to them. Now ask them if they can think of someone they could build a bridge to.

Listen toAudio: ‘Done It unto Me.’

Read Love, the Greatest Commandment, Part 9: Speak Well of Others.”

Listen toAudio: If Ye Have Love.”

ReadThe Ways of Love.” To end the class, the children can trace the figures on pages 7 through 9 to use in making their own “Loving Ways” book.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Gaining Wisdom from Difficulties

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in a 30- to 45-minute class. It relates to the lesson objectives on wisdom:

• Learn that the root of all wisdom comes from God, the fear of Him, and God’s Word; read and memorize Scripture upon which these principles are based. (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Wisdom 1a)
• Understand that wisdom is a gift of the Spirit, and godly wisdom is a manifestation of God’s Spirit within us. (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Wisdom 1b)
• Learn that there is a difference between man’s understanding and God’s wisdom. (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Wisdom 1c)

Enjoy singing and dancing along with “Sing, O Heavens.”

Start with “Discover Jewels through Difficulties.” If either of the two examples can be recently applied to your child, study further as suggested in the text.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Caring for Pets.” Ask your child what jewels the children might have gained through this incident, such as:

• The children were reminded about the importance of being diligent in the details of caring for pets. Neglecting little things can sometimes have big negative consequences. For example, the little neglect of checking on Hammy’s water caused him to be sick from dehydration.
• This could be applied to other areas in the children’s lives. Perhaps they feel impatient with the expectation of being diligent with the small things they are asked to do around the house. Talk about the repercussions of not being diligent, such as when the water in the bathroom is left running, or when they do not flush the toilet, etc.
• Bible verse jewels that can be applied can be found in “Crazily Cool Card Set: Faithfulness.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Don’t Argue, Have Fun” and “Standing on God’s Word: Forgiving Others.” Nick’s experiences help him to discover jewels that help him get along better with others. Discuss with your child the jewels Nick can gain from these experiences, such as:

• Being considerate of what the other person wants to do.
• How the joy that comes from getting along well together can be a greater joy than can be gained by always trying to get to do what you want.
• How friendships are hindered when we don’t forgive, but can grow when we do forgive.
• Read the Bible verses found within these two articles, and talk with the children about how they can apply these jewels in their lives.

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Be Appreciative and Thankful.”

Ask your child what jewels can be found in this experience. Some examples are:

• Showing consideration of the feelings of those who do things for us by appreciating what they do.
• Often when something is difficult for us, Jesus does things to help us, similar to how the mother added raisins to the rice pudding, which made it more enjoyable. Read the Bible verse about how God makes a “way of escape” or makes things easier for us in what we might consider a difficult situation. Can you and your child think of times something was done to make a situation easier for the child?

Wrap up this study by talking with your child about difficulties that they have encountered in the past week or month, discussing the final point in the article “Discover Jewels through Difficulties”: “There are many jewels to find, even in difficulties. What jewels in God’s Word have you discovered this week?”

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Bananas and Life Goals

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 20 to 30 minutes, relating to the lesson objective: “Learn of the importance of investing into one’s education, and identify with biblical, historical, and present-day characters who were/are successful, due to investing in their education.” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Learning and Study Skills-1b)

ReadThat Banana There.”

Listen to the audio, “That Banana There” or view it here.

Watch Dole: Banana Production, Plantation to Port.

Compare some of the points explained about producing bananas to experiences in the child’s life:
1) The banana shoot is well cleaned to make sure it is free from disease. This could be compared to how a parent or teacher explains what is acceptable behavior and what is not. For example, discuss with the child lessons about comportment they may have been learning recently. Talk about how learning takes time.
2) The banana plants are shown growing in clear jars, then planted into pots of ground coconut shell, and finally are planted in the field. This could be compared to how children go to preschool, then primary school, and step by step on to higher education.
3) There are often many steps that need to be taken to reach a goal, just like there are many steps to reach the goal of growing good bananas. Education is one way children prepare for adulthood, through learning important skills such as mathematics, social studies, science, language arts, etc. These steps are important, and it takes time to progress through those steps.
4) Each step is important. Talk about what would happen if one of the steps for producing bananas was not executed properly. For example, faulty drainage could cause young banana plants to drown. Bananas not packed well or kept at an incorrect temperature when shipped to another country will arrive in poor condition or even rotten. 
                In the case of a child’s education, children are trained one step at a time in the variety of subjects that they need training in for their lives. Sometimes it seems tiring or frustrating, as they have to pay close attention to understand the lessons well, but it’s all worthwhile.

ReadYou Can Do It!
