Bible Stories 1 is a collection of six sets of foam characters that can be printed, cut out and magnets attached to their backs to use as I do on a magnetic white board, made into puppets on Popsicle sticks, used in digital scrapbooking and faithbooking - your imagination is the limit!
The magnetic white board is key for my classes. Before class I draw a basic scene on the board - nothing fancy. I design and make these little foam characters for every lesson and glue magnets to their backs. As I read the the story, to keep them interested and engaged, I stop and hand out each character as they enter the story. The child puts them on the board where they should go. I let them decide where, to fit the story. They are building the story, acting it out with the characters and making it their own. As action happens in the story, they take turns changing the scene (like spreading garments and palm branches before Jesus at His triumphal entry to Jerusalem, overturning the tables and bird cages when Jesus cleansed the temple or moving the stone when the angel rolled the stone away from His tomb).
Here are some of the things I have made for my class. Click image to enlarge.

The Jesus Wanted Poster shown in the preview is today's gift. I started with the picture of Jesus from Effie's blog and changed it a lot then printed it and attached it to a store bought wanted poster. You get the entire poster - enjoy! I put it on my classroom door to show we want Jesus and there is a reward for finding Him.
