Letter s is for servant. We will be going over how Jesus served us, how we can serve Jesus, and community helpers.
Day one we read about Jesus coming into Jerusalem on a donkey and how people reacted. It was necessary to establish how important Jesus was/is before continuing on to the other stories.
To further this understanding The Dragons reenacted the story. I had some leafs saved from past dramatic play props that we used as palm branches. The Dragons took turns playing Jesus. As the others in the reenactment, we tried to make "Jesus" feel special.
Day 2 we read of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples. We took some time to discuss Peters reaction.
The Dragons washed each others feet as an act of service and a lesson in doing for others what they do for us..
Bible Verse: The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to be serve. -Mark 10:45
Our motion this week is hooking your fingers to make an s and say "s-s servant"
The Dragons went through their new week folders and we looked at pictures of things that start with the s or sh sound.
Community helpers are people who do a service for us in our Community. Because our theme is servNt we are taking time to talk about and recognize how others serve us. The local library has a community helpsrs discovery pack to help us explore this topic.
inside the pack were small plastic people and buildings to make a community. The Dragons played pretend with these peopls for awhile, setting them up and playing different people in the community.
I have been collecting hats the last few years and set them out today.
The Dragons chose a community helper and played pretend switching out roles periodically.
The officer jumps, the others jump. Kind of like Simon Says.
The Dragons went on a scavenger hunt for pink items.
To supplement this week and theme we did some of the activities listed here.
