Children in relation to society for Kindergarten - Lesson Plan

Class suggested being suitable for: Kindergarten (5 to 6 years old)

First: Welcome the children into the session. Say how happy we are to see them and how important they are for the class. Explain we will follow the letters of the alphabet in order to choose the volunteer for the opening prayer. So, the child’s name that starts with the letter A will do the opening prayer this time. Everybody will have the chance to collaborate as the weeks passed by.

After that, the Spiritist worker will introduce the “Raffle Box of Prayers”. In your turn, each child will open the box, choose one prayer and read it loudly for whole class. We will do it until all the kids have their chance to choose and read a prayer.     more..:>>

When the activity with the “Raffle box of Prayers” finishes the volunteer will collect the booklet “The Lord’s Prayer” with the children who was responsible in the previous week.

The volunteer can make up few questions, such as:
  • What did you most like in this prayer;
  • What could you learn during the week with the prayer and others

The children can also read the prayer for his/hers colleagues. Please note another child will be able to choose himself/herself to take the booklet home and bring it back next week.
P.S. The parents will be informed and also asked about their availability to bring the booklet next week, at the end of the class.

Second: Prayer Activity – Each child will receive a piece of paper in order to create your own prayer.
As soon as they finish they would be able to read it to their colleagues and put the prayers inside the “Raffle box of Prayers”

Extra activity:
The volunteer will bring some music instruments made from recycled materials. The kids should decorate them and sing some songs afterwards.

My God is so Big

Jesus love is very wonderful

Fourth: Story Time

The volunteer will tell them the Parable called: “The lost sheep”

There was once a shepherd who had 100 sheep. He used to take care very well of all of them because each one was important for him.

He took them to a good pasture where the sheep would be able to have good food/green and fresh water.

The shepherd knew each of them by name and loved all.

Every afternoon after all the in the pasture, the shepherd used to count one by one to confirm that all the 100 sheep was there and secure.

However, one night he counted only 99. He decided to count back again, but one sheep was definitely missing.

“Oh, one sheep is missing!”

He decided to go off to look for the missing sheep.

Look everywhere for a while and finally he found the lost sheep.

He took the sheep and put on his shoulders. He carried the sheep back home. And he arrived at home she was so happy that he said to his friends: “I had lost this sheep, but I have found it again.”

The children will be able to use the objects of the parable in order to tell the parable again.
