Learn the Books of the Bible
Here are some of the ways we helped our Sunday School class get excited about and Learn the Books of the Bible this year.
Books of the Bible Snack for Kids
To kick start our year in a really fun, memorable way I made these Books of the Bible Snacks.
They are made out of apple Newton cookies with a fruit by the foot tassel, and icing to make the book top.
The kids LOVED them!
It is easiest to make these like an assembly line. Do step 1 for all cookies, then step 2 for all cookies, etc. First cut off one of the sides (so you can see the pages on three sides of the cookie). Next use kitchen scissors to cut a tassel out of red fruit roll-up. Now use a knife to gently push the tassel into the bottom of the cookie. Finally, use icing to put a cross & edges on the Bible cookie.
Note: They are a little time consuming. I had to make 100 of them [we have a large class] and it took me a couple hours.
Books of the Bible Bulletin Board
In our 1st grade Sunday School room I made this “bulletin board” to help the kids see the books of the Bible as we work on learning them.
The colors represent the different sections of the Bible:
- Major Prophets
- Minor Prophets
- Church History
Inside each book I wrote a short description on what that book is all about and some major themes or stories from it. I love that as a teacher I am always in the word, reviewing, and learning myself!
Sing the Books of the Bible
We sung the Books of the Bible song by Go Fish every week to help cement it in further. You can get the video version on their website which we used – the kids loved it!
