Yes!

I am actually the Christian Education Director, but because of our program, we do not have regular Sunday School teachers.  We use the rotation model and each week a grouping of children rotate to a different station.  Each month is a different topic, and the stations are usually crafts, cooking, drama, storytime, video, and games.  Occasionally there are others, but those are the main stations.  Because of this model, we have a set of different volunteers each month to run the stations.  I write the curriculum, purchase the supplies, prepare everything and make samples, and do the Sunday School opening and closing.  During the Sunday School hour I have a group of 6th-8th graders that we call C.I.A. (Christians In Action).

I am always in seach of great books and ideas to use with the kids which go from 3 years old through 8th grade.

I teach on Saturday and sunday school. On Saturdays, I have children pre-k to 4th grade (and one 5th grader). The service varies from week to week.  On Sunday mornings, I teach pre-k to kindergarten.  Normally, I have between 14-16 kids and by myself. Last week, I had 22 aacckk. :) It went fine but wish I had a extra pair of hands for safety.   Sunday evenings, I teach 5 kids for a college age/young professionals ministry. I am hoping that number will grow some over time.

 

Dawn-- How many kids do you have in your program?

We teach jr highs and I really like the faith weaver series. There is a lot of background material for teachers that is very educational--in my case this is MY sunday school class since I can't be with the adults.  The curriculum is tied to current events, books, movies and music. There are games to make it fun and let the kids get to know one another.  Hope that helps
