2nd Grade - March - James 1:22 - Wooden Block Building

"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says." James 1:22

This game can be done for any verse!  Purchase 1-2 inch wooden cubes at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.  They usually have a value bag that is a little bit cheaper.  Since it takes so many blocks to make one verse, I recommend making this a game that you keep in class only.  To make, write a phrase on each of several blocks using an ultra-fine tip Sharpie.  Have the children put the blocks in order.  They can build the tower UP or build a wall sideways.  You may also number the tops or backs, so it’s a self check for them.  Have them work as a team in order to put the blocks in order.  

This photo shows the blocks all mixed up!

 Here is an example of building a wall...
 And an example of building a tower.
