New Supporting Member Resource

Paste in My Hair" --the new Children's Ministry Blog for Supporting Members is here to help! 

  • Posted:  Does your teaching have a "Jesus Gap"? 
  • Posted:  What are the 7 Secrets of Super Teachers?
  • Coming Soon:  "Real" Teacher Training --how-to, how-not-to, and by various ways!

One of the goals of this blog is to give Supporting Members "bulletin board material" to share with teachers. Another goal is to be practical, not preachy. Written by Heidi Weber and Neil MacQueen, peer-reviewed, and open to your replies.

In addition to all our public lesson forums, Supporting Members can access a collection of extra creative Sunday School lesson plans written by our Writing Team. View the Writing Team Lesson Menu.

About the Rotation Model and Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized for those using the Workshop Rotation Model to organize their Sunday School (one story taught several weeks in a row, with a different approach each week). However, our content is easily adaptable by traditional Sunday Schools.

Learn more about the Model
The Rotation Model is based on two principles:
(1) Creative teaching methods and rooms ("workshops") help students learn and want to return.
(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.

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. 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.
