INSTRUCTIONS “JOY STORY”
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! Be sure to view the video a few times before using to be aware of the contents 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 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.
For this game, you will first need to prepare the “Bingo” cards. (Best idea is to print on card stock and laminate each one. If you don’t have a laminating machine, go to Walmart or a hardware store and get clear shelving paper to cover both sides and cut out around each card.) Notice you have 100 DIFFERENT CARDS and a TRACKING CARD (which needs to be checked off as the game progresses). You will also need white board/erasable markers and a small square of felt material as an eraser for each child. (If you have more than 100 players, try partnering them together with one card or make more cards by printing out more from the master cards.)
First, decide on teams ( boys vs. girls, right vs. left sides, age levels, etc.) then show the JOY STORY intro video. It will set up the objectives in the “JOY STORY” theme. MAKE SURE YOU OR A HELPER ARE READY TO USE THE BIG TRACKING CARD TO BE SURE THE WINNER HAS ALL THE CORRCT ANSWERS.
Then you can pass out the “Bingo” cards, (there is a Christmas theme or an Easter theme “Bingo” cards) markers and felt square erasers.
Give the following instructions of how to “Win”: The first ones to have 5 boxes checked off across a line, or 4 boxes checked off down a column should stand and yell out “I GOT IT!” Always pick the first child who stands up to confirm his/her answers while telling the others not to change their cards. If all answers are correct, (use your tracking card to confirm the right answers), they will win 1000 points for their team!
If the first one is not confirmed, go to the second and continue until a winner is confirmed.
Now you are ready to play the BINGO 1, BINGO 2, AND BINGO 3 VIDEOS -ONE AT A TIME (If no one wins with the first BINGO VIDEO, then go to the second BINGO VIDEO part and so on. Most of the time there will be a winner on the second Bingo video.)
The great part about this game is that immediately you can play again by switching around the BINGO VIDEO PARTS in any order and/or giving out new Bingo cards to everyone. (Remember, even though you have more of the same cards, doesn’t mean everyone is going to get BINGO.) MOST OF ALL – ENJOY THE GAME!
