Meet my band of brothers, this semester they are doing the Grapevine bible study for kids on the Resurrection. We started with the free lesson available for the beginners level on the  Grapevine Studies website. What a great way to test out a new program!

Since I have different abilities with my band of brothers, I want to share how we are making this work. I tend to look at a program and think how I can tweak it to fit the needs of my kids. I love that we are learning God’s word together and I hope by having a different goal for each boy they will grow more in God’s knowledge . I hope by addressing a goal for each boy it will allow us to use the same level. For this lesson I chose the Beginners level, but I think you will see how it can work for all levels.

The oldest brother needs to practice speaking loudly and clearly. He will come to class each week prepared to read out loud the scripture verses. Helping prepare the bible study will allow him to learn leadership skills.

The middle brother needs to practice fine motor skills with drawing the figures. He will be given the blank paper and with direction should be able to recreate the pictures. While he is practicing his fine motor he can be a good role model in verbalizing the answer to the questions.

The youngest brother will practice his verbal skills with retelling what he drew. Since Grapevine doesn’t have the traceable version for the Resurrection series, I have lightly drawn the figures in for the youngest brother to draw over. This traceable worked really well with his drawings on this lesson.

I put together some extra clipart for the boys to cut out and glue on their pictures, they like adding these details.

Each week I will create the memory verse in pictures that way the boys can read and review the verse together. I will start and end the class reciting the verse.

Here is a PDF of the verse. Matther-26-20

The best part after reading and drawing the lesson was that the boys did a little skit on what they had learned. I gave one boy a bag of coins and they walked into town and “Jesus” gave the money for the meal to be prepared. We ended our time together with the boys washing each other’s feet. They couldn’t wait to put their feet in the bowl and hear how much Jesus loved them.
