Whoever Trusts in the Lord is Safe
Welcome to my Toddler Bible Lessons! I have been a teacher in public schools for 12 years and have taught a wide variety of subjects (gifted and talented, reading, writing, math, science, social studies, music, crochet) and ages (K-8). I recently decided to quit teaching in the classroom for the time being to be at home full-time with my now 16 month old daughter. It was a hard decision to make because I love teaching so much. I am a teacher at heart, and it felt like I was having to give up part of myself. But then I realized that I’m not quitting teaching – I’m transitioning to a different sort of teaching. And it has been such a blessing! I started preparing and teaching Katelyn some lessons (fun activities and also Bible lessons), and even though she was only 15 months at the time, I was impressed with how much fun it was for me – and how much she was learning!
I discovered a toddler Bible curriculum about creation online (https://missionbibleclass.org/how-to-plan-a-bible-class/age-groups/infants-and-toddlers-0-2-year-olds/) and adapted it to a 5 lessons per week at-home curriculum (if you’re interested in this, contact me). We just finished that, and it encouraged me and excited me to create my own toddler Bible curriculum. So here it is! I’m using the Say & Pray Baby Bible (https://www.amazon.com/Say-Pray-Bible-Stories-Prayers/dp/0718036573) as a basic guide for the stories and weekly verse and supplementing with my own summary of each story and fun activities I either create or find online (adapted to the theme of each story).
Each week there is a verse, an opening song, a Bible song, a Bible reading, and a closing prayer that are meant to be repeated each day of the lesson. Then there is a flow of the story covering 5 days. If you are reading this and have a toddler, I hope you will be able to use some of these ideas at home with your own kids to teach and train them in some important Biblical truths found in Scripture. I know for me, teaching deep truths of Scripture helps it to come alive for myself as well!
