Writing Team lessons are full of creative teaching techniques, including creative ways to read the scripture and creative reflections.

Optimally grades 2-6, each WT lesson plan includes younger adaptations, and certain lessons are easily adapted for Middle School use.

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized to support those using the Workshop Rotation Model for Sunday School. However, our content is easily adaptable by traditional Sunday Schools, and many of our registered and supporting members do just that.

Learn more about the Model
The Rotation Model is based on two principles:
(1) Creative teaching methods and rooms ("workshops") help students learn better and want to return more often.
(2) We need to teach stories for more than one week. Speeding through a new Bible story every week creates biblically illiterate kids and burned-out teachers who can't handle the rate of change and constant preparation.

Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.

Prodigal Son
Teacher: Jane
Teacher: Amy
Teacher: Bill
Teacher: Jo
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 and scalable to any church size. Add a fifth week and workshop to create a five week rotation. Add another grade by filling in the "Open" slots. See more schedule examples.
