This God Made Me preschool theme is based on God's creation of us! There are many Scripture verses/sections that could be used, the most obvious Genesis 1, Day 6. This page includes preschool lesson plans, activities and Interest Learning Center ideas for your Preschool Classroom!
Circle Time is such a great time for children to learn the social skills of being together as a large group AND to learn more about your theme!
In advance, ask parents to send in a picture of their child as a baby with their name printed on the back.
Attach the pictures to a board.
Bring this board to circle time.
Tell the children: Look how cute you all were! Can you guess who this baby is? Or this one? (point at baby pictures of you and a staff member!). That is me and that is ________(staff member's name)!
God made all of us. He loves us so much. We are all made uniquely--that means each one of us are different--but we are all loved and cared for by God. As a matter of fact, the Bible tells us this. In Proverbs 139:14 (open your Bible in front of the children to this verse), David wrote:
"I am fearfully and wonderfully made". Fearfully does not mean being afraid here...it means with heart felt interest! And wonderfully means with uniqueness. Let's thank God for His love and care!
VARIATION: Rather than stick items, give each child a stuffed animal!
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
This is a great activity to go along with this theme!
Jesus Loves Me song
This song has great sign language movements which you can look up online.
Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Me Cookies Thank you,Julie, for sending this idea!
Make sugar or gingerbread cookies (use a person cookie cutter in the dough). Decorate with frosting/icing, frosting bags, candy eyes, sprinkles, etc.
