2nd grade - 2 Thessalonians 3:3 - Hide the Word - December

2 Thessalonians 3:3 – But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.

The one page of ideas for this verse can be located here.

The take home activity can be found here with different words, but the same concept. Pages 8-13 are the sheets for the children to hold up for this activity.

One of the activites, a perforation, has instructions that can be found here. Pages 3, 4, and 5 have the blackline masters for perforations.

The second page is the certificate to pass out to the children when they say the verse for the first time. Feel free to dress up the certificate.

Page 7 is the verse poster for this verse. We hang ours in the classroom as we introduce the verse.

Page 6 is a verse poster for the children to decorate while you discuss the verse with the class.

2nd grade - 1 Timothy 4:12 - Hide the Word - November

 1 Timothy 4:12 – Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

Here is the one page idea sheet of activites for this verse.

Kids love to write on real objects. They think it's fun and really can't get enough of it. I know, I think it's silly, too, and I don't understand. I actually scoffed at the ideas to write memory verses on real objects, but the kids really seem to be interested in it, and use the object. All that to say, write this verse on sun glasses. The kids love the shades, and they learn the verse. You can find more information about writing the verse on sunglasses here.

The spin-a-verse activity is more fully described here. Please allow the children to decorate the paper plates with stickers, glitter, glue, markers, crayons, whatever. These white plates hurt my heart.

Page two in the packet is the certificate to give the children when they say the verse for the first time. Please copy onto pretty cardstock and decorate with stamps or stickers.

Page three can be copied onto cardstock and used to play concentration. It can also be used to create the spin-a-verse as discussed above and further in the packet.

Page four is the verse poster for this verse. We have these hanging in the classroom. We hang them as we discuss the verse for the first time.

2nd grade - 2 Timothy 2:15 - June - Hide the Word

2 Timothy 2:15 – Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

Here is the one page of ideas for this verse.

Of course, this verse lends itself to workman fun games and ideas. The send home activity idea for this month is the hammer sequence you can find here.

The phrase cards referenced in the one page of ideas can be as simple as hand written phrases on note cards or as involved as computer produced worksheet. Pages 4 and 5 of the one page packet can be used for this.

Page two is the certificate to pass out to the children when the child says his verse for the first time.

The third page is the description of the work man hat the children can write on and wear. Be sure to get a class photo!

Page six is a worksheet for the children to decorate. You can use a die cut hammer to glue to the top of the page.

Take lots of pictures of your little workmen who do not need to be ashamed and who can correctly handle the word of truth.
