Reply to "Creative Ways to Read and Discuss the Bible with Children"

We find that the kids still need to completely "hear" the story each week.  

......And every workshop does this in its own unique way.  

Some examples:

-Art Studio - We illustrate the reading with art from the illustrated bible ( - the kids LOVE the comic style, I love the word for word scripture and the speech bubbles are easy ways to get kids involved.

-Computer Lab - we use clips from the narrated free illustrated Bible or find other audio versions of the story.  

We really like Dan & Louie and the Storybook Castle MP3's for a telling of the story for younger kids

-Movie - we try to find a movie that sticks closely to scripture as a way to tell the story

-Drama - we do a dramatized reading where we act out scenes or assign actions to repeating words/themes

-Monologue/Storytelling - we have a teacher act out the scripture story through monologue - this is often worked into a workshop such as drama or cooking.

We have yet to see the kids get bored with the story.  Even though we tell the same story over and over again we take unique approaches to the telling in each workshop and that seems to help.
