In addition to these free resources, for many years our Writing Team has been posting detailed lesson sets for our Supporting Members. Starting in 2015, the Team's sets have been undergoing a creative transformation of their own. Whether your Sunday School uses the traditional or Rotation model, the Team's new and improved lesson sets are a great resource for extra awesome Bible lessons. Learn more.

About the Rotation Model and Lessons at Our Site
Learn more about the Model
♥ "Extra Creative" ...Multiple intelligence informed creative teaching in the workshop environment helps content and kids stick.
♥ "Extra Fun" ...Rotation workshops include: video, art, cooking, music, drama, puppets, software, games, music, and more. Rotation.org is a "popsicle craft-free zone." ;)
♥ Teachers stay put in their workshop during the rotation, adapting the same lesson for a new class each week. This reduces new lesson prep time, and let's them improve their lesson each week.
♥ "Extra Memorable" ...Rotation focuses on the Major Stories of the Bible (not the minors) No "one and done" here! Because we teach 9 to 12 major Bible stories a year -each in four to five week "rotations," regular attenders get depth, and irregular attenders are exposed to major scriptures.
Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.
|Week 1||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open|
|Week 2||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6|
|Week 3||Grades 5-6||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4|
|Week 4||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open||Grades K-1|
Rotation schedules are super-flexible. Add a week and a workshop to have a five week rotation. Add another grade by filling in the "Open" slots. Add a fifth row to bring in an additional workshop. See more schedule examples.
