• Know the children you teach. Study the general characteristics for the age group you will be teaching. This will help as you plan the learning activities. As you teach the preschoolers in your classroom, you will get to know their specific characteristics. This information will dictate the way you teach.

 

  • Start planning early in the week. Begin with the Personal Bible Study. You can’t teach what you don’t know! This Bible Study will prepare you personally and give God an opportunity to speak His directions to you. Take a look at the learning activities and resources to gather. Begin to think of how you can use Bible conversation during learning activities. How will you use the Life Application?

 

  • Arrive EARLY! I like to arrive 20-30 minutes before Sunday School. This gives me time to set up the classroom and create a good teaching environment. Be prepared to greet children at the door. Express love in your greeting, telling the child you are happy they came to Sunday School. Get any needed information from the parent, use the security system your church has in place, and help the child get settled into a learning activity.

 

  • Use contact 1• 2• 3 or Care4Kids. Follow up with guests and absentees.

 

  • Evaluate the Sunday School experience. Which learning activities were successful for using the Life Application? What will you do differently for group time? What did you learn about the children you teach?
