"Back Track" (Review)

taught in the previous lessons. Make sure the children have mastered
the concepts, practice and review before you teach new concepts.
Always review the Gospel Outline.
"Sword Play" (Memory verse)

Encourage your children to memorize the Scriptures as found in the

next week's Journey:
The goals and destination are listed at the beginning
of each lesson review them with the Trainers to ensure that everyone
understands the objectives.
Finalize Your Lesson Plan for next week's
After you are familiar with the lesson, you may
choose to modify the lesson plan to better fit your needs and contextualized
the material. You may choose to include some of the optional teaching
activities provided. We suggest a team teaching, interactive approach
with all Teacher/Trainers, Trainers and students being involved
in the teaching of the session. Make sure all the Teacher/Trainers
and Trainers are clear about their teaching assignments. Teach them
the section of the Gospel Presentation for the next week's Journey.
Teach them songs or cadences. Practice any dramas or illustrations
that will be taught during the Journey.
When your lesson plan is finalized, list the materials
that will be needed and assign them to the relevant Teacher/Trainer
or Trainer. Feel free to substitute readily available materials
and new and creative ideas to make the lesson exciting and relevant
to the children.

end of each teaching that allows time for God to seal His Word in
them through the Holy Spirit.
