“Here are the first movement cards to follow. (Pause.) First movement is [movement on the card]. Let’s do that movement. (Pause.) Great! The second movement is [movement on the card]. Let’s do that movement. (Pause.) Super! The third movement is [movement on the card]. Do that movement. (Pause.) Now, follow the plan again. (Pause.) Great job! Let’s pick new cards and make a new plan! (Repeat as long as desired.) You did a great job following the plan!”

Bottom Line: Parents say, “ Who can trust God?”. Encourage your child to say, “ I can trust God.”
Elementary/Preteen Monthly Theme: Press Play, Get In The Mix
Week 2: Cities In Dust
Bible Story: Isarel Captures Jericho
What you Do:
Provide your child with one cup.
Encourage your child to come up with their own rhythm and song to the memory verse by tapping their cups on the floor or table and clapping their hands.
Have your child perform their cup songs in front of you or the family.
What you Say:
“We have such a talented group! I loved hearing all the different ideas everyone came up with. I especially enjoyed seeing you all gain confidence to perform in front of others. The writer of Psalm 27 said that he would remain confident. One way we can show confidence is by remembering that God’s plan is the best plan. This week, don’t forget to boldly show confidence in God’s plans for you!”
Bottom Line: God’s plan is the best plan.
