How can you benefit from using the
Powerful Points Bible Study for Kids Lesson Series?
By putting those computers to use for something other than
playing games. They are after all one of the best teaching tools
You can keep their attention.
Use words and pictures that they can see to keep
from one "page" to the next.
You can challenge their minds.
Give them the information and then challenge the points being made with
questions for them to ponder, think about
and answer. The FREE teacher's Guide has suggestions for each
You can teach lessons learned for a lifetime.
For them to hear it once is hardly enough. But if they are asked
to "be the teacher" and that lesson is repeated at their own level,
they will remember it.
You can entertain the senses and they will be
focused. A child doesn't really focus on the lesson,
they focus on what they are seeing and hearing and
the best way to do that is by "entertaining" them. Be
creative. Get out of the "sameness" rut. Learning can be
You will educate them for today and tomorrow.
As the world changes it continues to remain the same.
What was taught in Bible times still applies
today. Show them how. Reveal the scriptures as the
"Word of God" in an exciting format not generally used for children's
Bible education or Junior worship services. The same principal
apples for one child or several, whether using a computer at home or in
the class room.
For the younger children the simplicity of turning
the pages using the mouse is like a game to them and yet they can learn
from what they are seeing and hearing.
You will be using today's technology.
There is nothing wrong with the "bedtime story" approach. There
is nothing wrong with reading a Bible story to a class of children.
There is much that can be added by "including" a different way of
presenting the Bible story or lesson by using computers, VCRs, and
television. Use what they are used to
seeing. Put that same technology to your advantage.
They will think it's "cool."
When you build a child's self esteem,
confidence comes with the doing. From the youngest to the
oldest child in the class, they will want to help you.
Let them. Repetition is good for all,
but especially good for the one doing the "teaching." If he/she
can read, they will want to do that. If they can only relate to
the story from the pictures, they will do that too. Pride may be
the downfall of adults ... in children it builds confidence for the
You will be providing challenging lesson
materials to your students.
Supplement the lessons with the FREE coordinated materials.
Again, repetition of the lesson with the matching pictures and text
supplements their learning experience.
Let them learn by doing.
Kids love computers and today's children are
"technically" savvy. They beg to get to spend time in our
computer lab. Set the lessons up in a computer lab or on your home
computer and they can review the lessons on their own.

A Message ...
From Linda Shanks:
To Parents, Teachers and Educators of the Bible,
who are looking for something new and exciting for their students!
It's a well known fact that
computers are a way of life. They are here to stay. While
I'm not an advocate of allowing children to spend hours and hours on them
for entertainment ... they are used for that regardless. So, why not
try to make use of some of that time.
As a parent, grandparent and teacher I've tried to find
ways of making better use of computer time for learning more about God and
His scriptures. There is much in the way of lessons for adults and
adult classes, but I could find little in what I wanted for my youth
classes. I wanted something simple and capable
of being used not only by the parent/teacher, but by the kids themselves.
I wanted to be able to use it with a
computer in a class room, a computer lab or with the family computer
at home. A laptop adds even more flexibility by allowing children to
learn while traveling. If you use your laptop to watch movies on while
on vacation ... you can use these beautiful flash presentations just as well
and have some diversity for them.
It is ideal for home schooling the
Bible as well as teaching in a church class room or with a youth group if
you have access to one or more computers for their use.
If you have sight impaired students
this is an excellent way to get them up close and into the scriptures ...
Why don't they remember?
Simply, their attention was not
focused on the lesson. It is well known that their attention
span is short anyway. Therefore it is much more interesting to poke
their neighbor than listen to the teacher read a story and never mind that
it is a Bible story.
Question: What's the most
for a teacher?
|Answer: When dad or mom asks the
student about what they learned in class today and
their reply is an "I don't know," or
they ignore the question entirely. The parent then looks to the
teacher for the answer and as a volunteer you may wonder why you are
even bothering. Been there, done that!
Find out how you can get them to participate in class.
Don't leave them sitting there with
a blank look on their face. Give them a "grown up job" and
watch their body language. See their pleasure when the job is
accomplished. There will be added love in your heart when th is
success in a lesson learned.
What is a favorite thing kids like to do?
There isn't a child out there who
doesn't like to press a button. When you add a series of
illustrations, the curiosity will be there to see what is next. How
many infant toys are built with the button principal? After all how
many BCRs and TV buttons are pushed by toddlers just because the buttons are
there and at their level? Buttons just need to be pushed --- with or
without extra stimulation.
Now hold on to that thought please.
Give them access to a computer with the ever present
mouse, a keyboard and a Bible story in Flash format and you have a
Multi-Media presentation tool for teaching children.
This is not a new idea ... just one that hasn't been used
much for teaching children. Schools use it and lots of churches
are using slide presentations for song services.
You can expand the system to two buttons
by using the arrow keys on the keyboard to move forward or backwards through
the Powerful Points Bible Study for Kids Flash Slide Presentations.
And kids love to be part of the lesson.
Our lessons are created for
children in PowerPoint® and converted to a flash format to be used by all
educators, from parents to teachers. Once loaded to your
computer or computers, all you or the student has to do is click on the
mouse button (or arrow keys) to advance to the next page of the lesson.
You've probably been using something like it all along.
The Bible Story Presentation varies
from 60 to 70 slides
in length and may be divided into more than one lesson or session.
Instruction for these sessions are in the teacher's guide. Each Bible
story is accompanied with scripture presentations that can also be used on
their own. These scripture presentations come in two formats - with
and without graphics. These are great for kids who wish to just read
the Bible or do memory work.
Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
Genesis 1:3 (NASB)
Then the Lord God formed man of dust of the ground, and breathed
into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Genesis 2:7 (NASB)
The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from
the man, and brought her to the man.
Genesis 2:22 (NASB)
|Hand drawn graphics or
illustrations, many of which are seen in the presentation using
PowerPoint's slide "animation" feature.
What makes this unique?
Uses technology that most
children are familiar with. Computers, VCRs and TVs.
Technology that they like.
Lets you control the pace within
the lesson. You can go forward, backwards, stop and
discuss. Use whatever control works with your class or child.
Allows the children to do
follow-up teaching by clicking the ever present mouse or arrow
keys. They love it. Thus the ONE Button Teaching System.
Give them the experience, one by one.
By adding comments from
the Presentation Teacher's Guide for discussion either during the
slide show or after, along with the familiar
Lesson Work Sheets and Activity Pages, you will
have an interesting and unique lesson experience. There is
plenty of material in the Teachers Guide. You can pick and choose
what you want to discuss.
