Also, your kids will receive some indepth knowledge about all 12 Disciples in fun, multiple choice games!
INVOLVES THE WHOLE AUDIENCE!
As with all Family Action Agents teaching videos, learning and fun are our top priorities!
You have just purchased an excellent TOOL in helping your kids learn from the Word of God! Make sure you go over the video a few times to be sure you are aware of how it is presented and to be comfortable in its presentation. In other words. you want to have a sense of command and excitement that beams out of you while this experience is happening! (Remember a tool does not take the place of you as a leader! It is there to enhance the gifting of talents God has given to you in instructing your kids!)
The best advice we can give is to think of yourself as a TV game show host! You will not just be playing a video and sitting back waiting for your kids to respond, but will be right there with them in the moment and excitement that transpires.
Materials you will need for this are : Wipe Boards for each child . IF YOU DON’T HAVE WIPE BOARDS, YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN BY COVERING A CARD STOCK SHEET OF PAPER WITH CLEAR SHELVING LINER (found at WalMart, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.) Then, cut the sheet in half . Also, have a wipe board marker for each child and a small square of felt as an eraser.
Before you start the game, play 52 MAB ST. LEARN. Tell your kids that you want them to learn a new address and that each letter and number in the address will help them remember all the 12 Disciples. While the third and last time on the vid plays, see if your kids can say, without you helping, all 12 Disciples. Then, pick a few volunteers and have them tell everyone the 12 disciples. You can help by saying, “The five J’s are… the two P words are…” and so forth. NOTE: JAMES THE GREAT was bigger and older than JAMES THE LESS!
This VID GAME, uses the entire audience, but you will need to divide them into 2 teams ( left/ right side, boys/ girls) with a HELPER for each team . As each multiple question plays it will give your kids 5 sec to write down an answer and then they will not be able to change the answer! Your kids will mark the correct answer (either 1, 2, 3 or 4 on a WIPE BOARD and hold it up facing front so when the correct answer is revealed, all kids who have a wrong answer will put their wipe board down and sit down; the kids with the correct answers stay standing. HAVE EACH HELPER FOR YOUR TEAMS mark down the total correct answers for each team the were assigned to. At the end of the game the team with the most correct answers wins 1,000 points).
When you are ready to start, pass out boards, markers, and felt erasers. Go over the game directions (above). You have received 2 DIFFERENT GAMES! – Vol 1 and Vol 2 – each run around 5 minutes. Both teach about the 12 Disciples.
Remember to KNOCK IT OUT OF THE BALL PARK with this video game and your kids will be telling everyone about the experience as well as asking you when can they play again!
