Sunday School Specials Jul 13, 2008
I purchased this for our summer sunday school program with hopes that it would fit the age range we work with (preK through seniors in high school). I was disappointed. The curriculum is much more geared to preK through 3rd, maybe 4th grade. I had to alter, add to it for the middle schoolers and definitely the high schoolers were bored. The idea is to get the older kids helping the younger kids with the crafts/lessons/etc. but - let's be honest - high schoolers generally like to hang with high schoolers, not kindergarteners! It has fine lessons but it is definitely not geared to a broad age-group.
Very interactive with the children Jun 13, 2008
We (two of use teach Sunday School together) now have the series of Sunday School Special books and have enjoyed using them in our Church. The children love doing the activity prior to the lesson(that is bible based) and conected with the lesson. The lessons are for all ages and combined classes but, we teach 4th, 5th, and 6th graders and all the books work for us. The children are always part of the lessons. We will continue to use the books (4) over again.
great resource Sep 25, 2006
I have 11 kids in K-5. Because of their age range, I needed a Sunday School resource that could address a group at very different levels of understanding. Sunday School Specials gets the kids' attention and delivers the message. The activities are crafted to allow effective interaction between older and younger kids, making the most out of having older and younger kids together. I've found that my kids actually grow a lot through the experience of being in a mix-age group, with the older ones helping the younger ones and the younger ones learning from the older ones. I've also discovered that the kids retain the message of the lesson--the material focuses on the Biblical message through activities that are engaging AND God-centered. This has been a very useful resource.
This booked saved my neck! May 23, 2002
I am a new Children's Director and on my first Sunday I found myself in the elememntry school Sunday School classroom (it's k- 5th grade together) that did not have a teacher. I was able to pull this book out and give the children up bet and fun activities that stress Biblical principles, as well as reached each child on their own cognative level. I am a college student majoring in Children's Ministry and am highly impressed at how well this books teaching methods cover everything that I am learning. (ex. uses the different learning styles, has a "Hook", "Book", "Look", and "Took".) I highly recommend this book for a group that is small and has a variety of ages.
Sunday School Specials is wonderful! Feb 6, 1998
Sunday School Specials is a wonderful book! I use it for mid-week classes. The kids enjoy the crafts and activity pages. The book puts the scripture on the kids level and applys it to happenings in their every day life. This book is a great book for childrens church or mid-week services.
