1st grade - Hide the Word - August - Proverbs 16:18

  • “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

This is a fun activity!  This is a mail-out game for first grade, but it can also be an in-class activity.  This top photo shows the master for the flags.  Divide your verse into verse phrases.  Create a table on your computer so that all the boxes are the same size.  Copy onto card stock. 
  Cut the boxes apart and tape them to a cut straw to create flags.  When cutting the straws, I was able to get 4 flags from one straw.  At our local grocery store that had a bag of 100 brightly colored straws for $2... we may never buy straws again! :)  I used scotch tape to affix the box to the straw.
To do this activity, you will need a tub of beans or rice.  The tub that we use is a sensory tub that I used with my boys when they were in pre-school.  It has white lima beans, black beans and heart confetti.  You can use any combination of dry beans and rice.  Make sure there is enough beans to be 2 inches deep in the container.  The container we used is an old tupperware pie holder.  It was a container I had and was not using.  Any air-tight container that is medium to large sized is fine to use.

In class (or at home), the teacher puts the flags into the bean tub in random order.  The kids then sequence the verse.  You can also just give the child the flags and have them put in the correct order from the beginning.
Make sure you sing and say the verse each time you build it!
