Lent Day 3
Today I prepared a lesson on mercy for Makayla as a part of our homeschool time. Here is what we did:
Lesson: Jesus and Mercy
Objective: For the child to understand that Jesus teaches us to be merciful.
Materials Needed: fabric, glue, scissors, people cutouts, yarn, dowels, picture bible.
Time: 30 minutes
1) Using our illustrated family bible we read selections from Matthew chapter 4,6, and 7, Luke chapter 6, and also the Beatitudes.
2) We then talked about how Jesus teaches us to treat people including; feeding the hungry, loving people who hurt you, and caring for the poor and needy.
3) Using the cloth scraps, cutouts, and glue we then ‘dressed’ a figure who was in need of clothing.
Real Life Application: After the lesson and craft, we went through some of Makayla and Harper’s clothing and filled a bag which we dropped of at a local charity.
