Our Monthly Lesson Flash Mob has begun!


Lesson Flash Mob Graphic



Sign up by posting in the Lesson Flash Mob forum, then come into the Jesus' Birth Foretold by Isaiah lesson forum and contribute your lesson ideas.

In the Rotation Model, kids focus on one major story for four to five weeks in a row, -each week through a different creative medium and teacher. This deepens the student's understanding and memory of the lesson, while adding a sense of anticipation and freshness each week. 
Teachers stay put in the workshop of their strength during the story rotation, while a "Shepherd" rotates each week with the kids. This allows the teacher to adjust and improve their lesson, and dramatically cuts down on their weekly prep time. Learn more about the Model.
