On this page, you will get a “sneak peek” of the various pages of the revised and updated “Little Ones Curriculum” for 3 – 6 year olds (featuring the art of Matt Baker). A JULY through DECEMBER schedule completing this year is included with this curriculum along with 26 Bible Story Sets through core Bible stories in the Old & New Testaments. Lord willing, with the Lord’s provision we will release the full-year schedule next January.

Coloring Picture

With a memory verse, story title, and space for the child’s name, each coloring picture is designed to draw the children into the story being learned. The beautiful illustrations found on each coloring picture are drawn by Matt Baker (Walt Disney Animation Studios, Bakeart Creations, etc.). We are thrilled that God has brought him to this project as we watch him bring each of the Bible stories to life.

JATGF-4
Teacher Page & Take Home Sheet

Using questions while teaching is a useful tool in discovering the truths found in God’s Word. Listed on this sheet are questions to help guide the teacher and lead the children to the truths contained in the story. This sheet can be used throughout the story time or for review after the story. This also makes a great take-home sheet (can be copied on the back of the coloring picture) for the parent to use as they discuss the story with their child at home.

JATGF-5
Wordsearch

With 6 key words taken from the Bible story and hidden in this simple wordsearch, the teacher can begin helping the children understand the story by discussing these 6 key words with the children, as they search for each word. The first letter of each hidden word is in bold font.

JATGF-6
Dot-to-dot

On this page, the children will complete the story illustration (based off of the coloring picture) by following the dot-to-dot numbers.

JATGF-7
Fill-in-the-blanks / Maze

Older preschoolers/kindergarten will enjoy writing out the missing words from the memory verse, as well as making their way through the maze from one end to the other.

JATGF-8
Find the Differences

Children will look at the two pictures, comparing them to find the 10 things that are not the same.

JATGF-9
Craft Instructions

On this page, step-by-step instructions are listed for each craft.

JATGF-10
Craft Page 1

This is the page the child will receive, color, and make into his/her craft by adding an object to it (see below.)

JATGF-11
Craft Page 2

This page will have an illustration, which needs to be cut out and prepared before class, so that each child can complete their craft. The reason for more than one image on a page is so only a few copies will be needed for a whole class.
