Teach Kids To Be A Good Listener

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—this is the first commandment with a promise: “so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”

Ephesians 6:1-3

Lesson

Story targets to listening to different sounds and listening to parents. Listening and acting out different sounds makes them adept to their hearing senses. While a very particular lesson to be learned in here is listening in terms of listening to our parents/ guardians so we can have a fruitful life

■ Name That Sound

Have your child close their eyes or use a blindfold. Make a variety of noises around the house and have the child identify what the noise is. Examples include: closing a window, dropping a book, knocking on a door, turning on a light, or opening a drawer.

■ Play “Simon Says” – (will be replaced by Jesus Says) This classic game is wonderful for teaching children to listen carefully. Explain that they should only do the action if they hear “Simon Says” beforehand. Example: If they hear “Stand on one foot”, they shouldn’t do the action, but if they hear “Simon Says stand on one foot”, they should do it.

The Five Finger Prayer

Craft 

Materials:


1. The thumb is the closest finger to you. So start praying for those who are closest to you. They are the persons easiest to remember. To pray for our dear ones is a “sweet obligation.”

2. The next finger is the index. Pray for those who teach you, instruct you and heal you. They need the support and wisdom to show direction to others. Always keep them in your prayers.

3. The following finger is the tallest. It reminds us of our leaders, the governors and those who have authority. They need God’s guidance.

4. The fourth finger is the ring finger. Even that it may surprise you, it is our weakest finger. It should remind us to pray for the weakest, the sick or those plagued by problems. They need your prayers.

5. And finally we have our smallest finger, the smallest of all. Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. When you are done praying for the other four groups, you will be able to see your own needs but in the proper perspective, and also you will be able to pray for your own needs in a better way.
