New from our Writing Team

Jesus' Great Commission and Ascension

6 different creative lessons!

Coming this summer
from the Team:

"Lazarus Come Out!"
"The Magi: Gifts to Give Your Savior"

Writing Team lessons are extra-creative and extra-detailed for teachers. They have younger grade and "shorter class" adapations. They also help your teachers learn many different 'techniques' for reading the Bible, leading discussion, and reflecting with kids.

The WT lesson sets are in addition to our chockfull public lesson forums. :)

Fun at the Fair

Carolyn Hodgson
We are planning a final lesson for June 24, 2018 just when our local fair is in session. I'm wondering what kind of ideas you have for an open session on this topic. I'm looking for a good Bible story and some other fun events for that day. Thanks, CarolynRead More...

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.

Print a one page PDF about the Model
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.
