More Reasons

...why the Rotation Model is better than the traditional model

#4. All your rotating grade groups are learning the same story. This makes it easier for parents and siblings to talk about their lessons. This also allows the pastor to preach/teach on the story in worship.

#3. In Rotation, teachers feel less pressure to "squeeze it all in" every week because they know their story is also getting covered by other weeks and teachers
#2. Teaching 52 different stories a year with traditional graded curriculum chews up your curriculum budget. In Rotation, teacher's prep one lesson for their workshop every 4 to 5 weeks, and make natural age adjustments for each age group you have. This saves your budget for something more attractive than teacher booklets.

#1. Many kids don't attend every single week, so why change the story each week? Rotation Model teaches the same MAJOR Bible story for several weeks in a row through different media so that regular attenders REALLY learn it, and less frequent attenders are exposed to the major stories of the Bible in attractive ways.
