Here is an idea for Christian children’s church as well as for Sunday school. As a teacher you are always looking for ways to maintain good attendance. Try the idea below.
Children’s Church Idea for maintaining attendance: “Lesson Chains”
At the end of each class period, hand students a strip of construction paper. Have them write the children’s church/Sunday school lesson of the day, such as “God can help us make good decisions” on one side of the paper and fold it into a ring, with the words on the outside. Each week, they tape or staple the ring to the previous one, making a chain with each week’s topic prominently displayed.
The student with the longest chain at the end of all the sessions receives a prize, because that is the student with the best children’s church attendance. Also, students take the chain home at the end of the sessions and can tell their parents what they have done as well as jog their memory about the point of each lesson.
