November 2015 Character Trait: Thankfulness

October 31, 2015

Curriculum, Resources


Our character-trait for this month is: thankfulness

Thankfulness is: “Being grateful for God’s kindness and blessings.”

Our bible story is: Jesus and the 10 lepers.

Here’s a short video of our story in case you need a little refresher.

Here are some ideas that you can implement using our acronym B.E.L.O.V.E.D. to help our learners understand the character trait of friendship:

Bless Everyone

  • Use your words to talk about thankfulness at home, church, or school.
  • Use your words to thank kids/teens in the classroom when they follow instructions or do something kind for someone.

Love Others

  • Model thankfulness thru your actions.

Value Each

  • Ensure that your attitude reflects value, worth, and respect for others.

Discuss God’s Word

  • Join in on what they’re doing and tell them the story of Jesus and the 10 lepers.
  • Complete this month’s activity pages with them.
  • Grab the small magnetic whiteboard and have them match the pictures of this month’s Scripture memory verse and/or prayer.

Thank you for creating a space in your busy day to serve others and help to make disciples!

God bless,
