Lord's Prayer
I have the privilege of co-teaching Sunday school to a group of 3 to 7 year olds. The beauty of the class is the mix of ages and abilities. Our kids don’t have to move up to the next class until they are ready. Since I have been doing this for a few years, it is great joy to watch our special need students blossom in their knowledge of God’s word.

For the first half of the year, we are going to spend a week on each verse of the Lord’s Prayer. Since I am a visual thinker, I like to place pictures above words to help the non-readers in the class recite their scripture verse. Our goal, that they understand the concepts and don’t get hung up on unfamiliar words.

My pictures are simple clip art and I chose ones that I think this age group would understand.

Here are the PDFs for the Lord’s Prayer:

Lords-Prayer-Part-1

Lords-Prayer-Part-2

Lords-Prayer-Part-3

Father

The size will fit onto the sentence strips that are sold at the Dollar Tree. I matted one set of strips onto a foam board with corner mounts. That way we can add the new strip each week.

I just read a great blog post on using moveable visual schedules over at The Inclusive Church blog. I think this will be a great help to our class. If you are looking for a few more activities for the Lord’s Prayer, I found some sites with lapbooks, mini books  and coloring pages. I think I have a few more verses I want to work on for them.

Here is how our church re-did Jr. Church to better serve the needs of all children.
