Motivation

Children seated around teacherThere is much to learn about teacher child relationships, motivation, characteristics of growth and basic principles, but one day the teacher is called upon to teach! How do you begin with your children's lesson preparation?

Preparation Prayer

Bible for the WorldFirst and foremost in the children's lesson preparation comes personal prayer. Undergird yourself and your work with petition and praise. Don't be like John Buchan (1875 - 1940 AD) who published the famous "The Thirty Nine Steps." He described an atheist as "A man who has no invisible means of support!" You should therefore examine carefully all the relevant printed materials. Research the Bible passages given, absorb the lesson and search through the workbook and any handout materials there may be. Ask God to lead you in this quest for the right approach and subject matter to make the subject known to the class. Every year, it is a good idea for the Sunday school teachers to sit down together, to set down the merits of the syllabus they are using and look at the alternatives available on the market. The analysis on the next page will assist you in deciding.✞
