This week marks a turning point in the Gospel of John. It is the point where we turn our focus from John (the Baptist) to Jesus (the Light, the Lamb, the Son). It is getting exciting to see just how much our students have learned in the first part of the first chapter of John.
Annnddd….we are finished with chapter 1!! I mean, who would have thought it could take this long to go through ONE chapter? It feels like such an accomplishment to have made it this far. We should be able to pick up the pace a bit for a little while.
We are back after a short hiatus for varied adventures around the country involving more rental vehicles than I care to mention. And what a refreshing passage to come back to!! We were even able to come up with a song to help us remember the testimony of John!
A note about the formatting for this and future posts: I previously created a conversational outline of the teaching time we have for each day. It looked just the way I wanted it to look. Then I went away and my post editor changed; and I cannot figure out how to edit it the way you (and I) are used to seeing it. Please bear with the change. It will hopefully be something simple I can figure out soon.

Life simply got in the way and I wasn’t able to follow through with it. But apparently this topic has resonated with you, my readers. I get very few comments on this blog; fewer still emails from my readers.
Since I published my first post on our Inductive Study for Kids through the book of John, I have received comment after comment asking, “Is there more?!!” And I even got an email from a pastor-reader asking how I would approach the teaching of another passage for a kids sermon he was working on.
I hear you! And I am trying to dive back into our Inductive Study. Today, I am sharing a little bit of a review. Continue Reading
We have been slowly working our way through John chapter 1, using a modified inductive study method. We focus on asking lots of questions and reviewing the information a LOT! In the short time we have been working through John, we have learned much of the content. For more information and to discover how we walked through the first part of John, check out the previous post in this series.
Here are the simple ideas we used to learn John 1:6-8. Our girls are 4 and 5 years old.
