Joseph’s Colorful Coat
In accordance with the ABC Jesus Loves Me Week 6 lesson, we spent a week talking about Joseph’s colorful coat, his dreams, and how he ended up in Egypt after his brothers sold him. I did use the Bible verse from the curriculum this week (Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21). I love Steve Green’s Hide ‘Em In Your Heart CDs, because they do a great job of helping us memorize Scripture. I just wish they incorporated Bible reference so we knew where to find the verses! Here was our iPod playlist for the week:
- “Genesis 37” from the ESV Audio Drama Children’s Bible from Faith Comes By Hearing (and the song “Joseph”)
- “Joseph’s Dream” from The Singing Bible
- “Do Not Be Overcome By Evil” from Hide ‘Em In Your Heart CD
For our Bible Notebook, Ian made a “coat” from a tissue paper collage. I found a “Bible friend” paper doll online, then saved the image and enlarged it so it would take up the full page. Then used it to draw the outline of a coat for Ian to fill in with tissue paper squares.
Every week when we add our latest creation to Ian’s Bible Notebook, we read through all the previous pages. He’s getting very good at “reading” the memory verses!
