♥ Multiple Intelligence Informed Teaching ♥
Because Rotation Sunday Schools spend 4 to 5 weeks on a story, we teach that story through a different medium each week: video, cooking, music, drama, puppets, software, games, and more. By the end of the "rotation" the students have had a much richer and deeper learning experience.
♥ Major Stories, Not Minor ♥ We teach 9 to 12 major Bible stories a year -four to five weeks each. This also means less regular attenders are always learning our most important stories.
♥ Less Pressure on the Lesson Plan ♥ Rotation teachers have 4 to 5 weeks to explore a story, not just 45 minutes.
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. A fifth row can be an additional workshop. See more schedule examples.
