The Multiage Teacher’s Guide provides a full quarter of flexible session plans to help teachers plan sessions for a wide age span. Sessions follow a five-part sequence: Prepare, Connect, Encounter, Explore, and Bless. Activity options—such as Create, Move, Discover, Make Peace, and more—invite children to dig deeper into the Bible story and make connections to their own lives. Order one for each teacher. Order the Primary and Older Elementary student pieces as appropriate for your group. Each teacher and each child will also need a copy of All of Us: God’s Story for You & Me.
New for Fall 2020, this teacher’s guide also includes Shine Connect for Elementary, a free digital resource for those teachers leading children through online Christian formation sessions—whether livestreaming or via video conferencing. Shine Connect for Elementary is a robust guide with weekly online session plans and accompanies the Primary, Older Elementary, and Multiage teacher’s guides. This free resource will become available online on July 1, 2020, and will be accessible through the QR code or URL found in the teacher’s guide.
