For our second 'princess class' we had to add another chair and workbook because we had another little girl in class ... 6 in all!!
We started out the class by asking for a volunteer to open the class in prayer and almost every little hand in the room went up! We chose one little girl and assured the others that they would each have a turn in the upcoming weeks as well.
From there we reviewed our memory verse (Esther 4:14) and then went over to the story wall and reviewed our story from last week where we were introduced to the King and his Queen.
We left our story last week with the King needing a new queen and that's where we picked up this week. We learned how Queen Esther was chosen and about her secret. The girls really liked this part!
One of the girls asked where I was getting this story from and I showed them in the Bible the book of Esther. They couldn't believe this story was in the Bible and a couple of them said they were going to go home and read it. As a Bible teacher, I can tell you it just doesn't get much better than that!
After our time at the story wall, we sang some 'Esther'songs and opened our activity books to finish out the class.
Our take home item for the girls this week were 'Esther' paper dolls.
As they color each piece I hope it will reinforce what they have learned so far.
Class #2 was another huge success!
