Bible Theme: Strength in Christ
In the first of our October lessons, children will learn

whether they are good or bad God is loyal to his
promise. We've included some wonderful bible
printables to help you teach little ones this important
Preschool Theme: Dogs

coloring pages, bible verse bracelets, handwriting
worksheets and more!  We have everything you need
for a great puppy adventure!
"No Matter What" by Debi Gilori
I’m grim and grumpy,” says Small to Large, “and I don’
t think you love me at all.” But nothing could be
further from the truth--and Large knows just how to
reassure Small in this warm and tender story about a
child’s biggest worry and a parent’s endless capacity
for love.
"I Got Two Dogs" by John Lithgow
Fanny and Blue may not be the smartest dogs, and
they may not be the best-behaved dogs, but they are
definitely the most-loved dogs.

John Lithgow's bouncy song - in the book and on the
accompanying CD - is based on his own family's two
dogs. And Robert Neubecker's eye-popping
illustrations capture the joy of all things dog.

children it's treat time!
Music & Movement:

Play Charlotte Diamond's "I
Wanna Be a Dog" from her
CD, "10 Carrot Diamond."  
Act out the song as it plays.
Morning Circle:

Letter "D."  Introduce the letter D  (B&W) to the children.  Show or write the letter D.   
Make the "d" sound with the children.  Play a "d"-word
guessing game.  Describe a duck
for example.  Give the children clues:  it lives on a farm, it swims, it has feathers, it
quacks.  When the children guess the correct answer, repeat it with the children:  
"d-d-d-duck."  You might even like to show the word and a picture to reinforce the
sound and letter.  Try some other "d"-words:  dinosaur, donkey, daisy, door, dog.
Explain that today's theme is
all about dogs.  Spend a few moments talking with the
children about any dogs they own, or about their favorite dogs.  What are some of the
characteristics of dogs?  Furry?  Smelly?  Fun?  Messy?  Naughty?  Friendly?
Read: "I Got Two Dogs" by John Lithgow
If your copy comes with the CD, listen to it while
reading the book.  Discuss how much the author loves
his dogs, even though they cause a lot of trouble.
Center Time Sorting
Give each child a baggie filled with raisins, chex mix,
stick-shaped pretzels, crisped rice cereal, cheerio cereal,
etc.  Encourage the children to count, sort, and
organize all the different types of "kibble."  
Incorporate into snack-time if you wish.
Listening Center
where you can log on to the internet and attach headphones to
your computer.  The following link provides many types of
dog sounds, and you might like to set up your own playlist so
you will have no worries during center time.  Please listen and
select the sound bytes you want to use beforehand.  Some my
not be suitable (i.e., some are of humans acting like dogs, etc.)  
See "dog barking" at
Animal Center Imaginary Play
Set up tables, "cages" of chairs turned on their sides,
stuffed animals, brushes, dishes, pillows, (etc.) and
encourage the children to role-play as dogs,
prospective owners, vets, pet adoption workers, etc.

Jesus our Lord."

Using the template provided, cut out ears and a nose for your dog
masks.  Let the children decorate or color them anyway they wish.

stores.)  Then, play Charlotte Diamond's "I Wanna Be a Dog"
from the Music section, and let the children act like dogs.

with the children

couple of her available dogs.  Use this opportunity to
discuss how we are "adopted" into God's family.
