Parable of the Sower

Preschool class was a small group last night at church so I decided it was going to be a relaxed night of class. Personally, I thought this was a neat lesson and that it really stuck with the kids. I wanted to do something different so I came across the parable of the sower in the Jesus Calling Storybook Bible by Sarah Young. I have never done this lesson before so I decided to give it a go.

This is such a neat book for children!

First, I asked the class who Jesus was. They replied with answers such as “the Son of God.” I had to go into explaining that Jesus was also a teacher and a storyteller to go along with our lesson. I went into explaining what a parable is which is a story that teaches a lesson. Afterwards, I started asking the class if they have ever heard the story of the Three Little Pigs. All of the children had heard the story being read to them multiple times. They told me what happened in the story and what could be learned from the story of the Three Little Pigs. Then I went into explaining that Jesus told stories like to adults, but it was stories about real things like sheep and trees. Jesus did not tell stories about made up things like talking pigs or wolf that huffed and puffed. His stories helped people learn about God.

After our Three Little Pig discussion, I showed the children the picture that correlated with the Parable of the Sower. Instead of reading the story out of the book, I showed a video that told the story instead. I thought the video told the story better than the book.

The snack we ate went along with the theme of the lesson. I bought chocolate pudding and topped the pudding off with crushed Oreos and sour gummy worms.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peak into my preschool class!
