(2) Speeding through a new Bible every week creates biblically illiterate kids and burned-out teachers who can't handle the rate of change and constant preparation.
Our solution: slow down.
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. Add a fifth row to bring in an additional workshop. See more schedule examples.
