About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site

You may have noticed that our Bible Story Lesson Forums mainly focus on "major" Bible stories and are further organized by creative teaching methods (aka "workshops"). That's a nod to our Rotation modelers for whom this site was originally created. It ALSO helps traditional Sunday Schools who are looking for something more than the "same-old craft."

Two Rotation Model Principles:

(1) Creative lessons taught in creative spaces we call "workshops" help students learn and WANT to return.
(2) Focusing on major stories for several weeks in a row improves Bible literacy and helps reduce teacher prep time and burnout. 

Learn more about how traditional Sunday School classes can take advantage of Rotation practices and ideas.

Here's a typical four-week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups. If you only have one or two groups of kids, you would still rotate them through all the workshops, but on any given week some workshops would not be in use.

ROTATION STORY:
Prodigal Son
VIDEO
Teacher: Jane
ART
Teacher: Amy
DRAMA
Teacher: Bill
BIBLE GAMES
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.
