If a pastor and author is going to undertake telling the story of “A Brief History of God’s Unfolding Promise to Mend the Entire Universe,” he needs partners. Perhaps he would consider a couple of prairie dogs and a dynamic preacher from South Africa. Read Metro Lutheran article on Manna and Mercy.
From a church’s children’s director: “It’s the best children’s curriculum I’ve seen! Each lesson builds and reinforces earlier stories and concepts. Activities connect to the story in ways that encourage the diverse ways children learn. Children are active in their learning so they get the concepts and the stories.”
From a new church member: “On the way home after church, Tanner excitedly talked about all that he is learning in Sunday school. He’s never done that before. He says he is learning so much more than in other Sunday schools he’s been in.”
From a 5th grader: “What game are we going to play this morning?!”
These are some of the encouraging responses that Hanna Schock has received this year as she has written, planned, and led the teaching of Manna and Mercy: A Curriculum for Elementary Children. Hanna, from First United Methodist in Birmingham, Alabama, is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist with an understanding of how children learn. Her perspective has led to a unique elementary curriculum that includes lessons emphasizing fun learning and making connections across stories and concepts.
For further information, contact Hanna at email@example.com to receive an electronic copy of the first 5 lessons, supplemental documents, and some sample photos. Try it, like it, and pay $100 for all 50 lessons to be sent to you. That’s just $2 a lesson. One purchaser has said there is enough material in this curriculum for 3 years of lessons!More information at http://mannaandmercy.org/study-guides/children-s-curriculum.html
Once or twice a year we're planning on sending out an e-newsletter with news and resources related to Dan Erlander's publications. If you want to be kept in the loop about any new teaching resources or study guides related to any of Dan's books, sign up to be on the list.
See article written about Dan in the June 2011 issue of The Lutheran magazine.
