A Project Folder for Psalms, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes
Studying the books of poetry is always rewarding but, since it doesn’t tell a chronological story it can be a little difficult to keep the kids focused on what we’re studying. Hopefully, this project folder will help them keep in mind some of the passages we spent time on.
My goal during this quarter was to familiarize the students with some of the passages from these 3 great books. They weren’t expected to memorize them all but we did work diligently at memorizing Psalm 23 and Psalm 100. To acquaint the kids with the rest of the passages, we read, we sang, we discussed and we did these little activities.
Each of the activities in the project folder can be used on its own and sent home at the end of class. I prefer to keep them all together in a project folder because we all know what happens to most of the take homes kids walk out the door with. Hopefully, the project folder will be special enough to them that they’ll want to take care of it and go back to it again and again.
As you look at the pictures below, if you’re interested in any or all of the activities, just click on the picture for more detailed information, pictures and pdf of each of these activities.
