The Simply Loved Elementary Holiday Year 1 lesson plan is designed to help kids in first grade through fourth grades celebrate Jesus through his birth and resurrection.
Simply Loved Holiday Year 1 curriculum kit includes four lessons-two for the Easter season and two for the Christmas season. Each lesson features a lovable Bible Memory Buddy that creates a visual and emotional connection to every lesson through engaging videos, helping kids learn and remember each unit's Bible Memory Verse. In Holiday, kids explore Bible truths along with Olivia the Barn Owl (Psst... if you've used Group's VBS, you might recognize this character!)
This digital kit is ideal when managing multiple elementary Sunday school classrooms and for creating email and social media communications to families and your congregation.
