- Personal Space
- Around, Away
- Run, Jog, Walk
Introduce Personal Space: Everyone find a spot marker and stretch your hands up to the sky, down to the ground, to the front, behind, to the side. Can you touch anyone? This is your personal space. You are in your own space.
Play the “Close But Not Touching” Game.
Play the “Freeze Game” by Greg and Steve: Find your spot, when music starts walk around spot. When music stops “freeze” like a statue. Freeze means stop where you are and do not move. Play several times. This time when the music starts travel away from your spot. When music stops “freeze” like a statue. Experiment with different ways to travel… walk, jog and run. When you hear “Go home!” move back to your spot.
Pick Up Time: When you hear the color of your spot bring it to me. Sit down when you are ready.
Objective: To introduce the children to Jesus and the Bible.
Show the children the Bible and tell them that the Bible is God’s special book. It is filled with stories about Jesus and other people too. Explain to the children that every time they come to opening music they will hear a short story from the Bible or they will learn something about Jesus. Show the picture of Jesus. Tell them that Jesus is God’s son and he lives in heaven with God. Jesus loves us all very much. We cannot see him, but he is always with us.
Sing “Jesus Loves Me.”
Closing Prayer: Dear Jesus, be with us at school today, as we work and as we play. Help us to be kind to our friends. Amen.
