Sunbeams and Clouds

I was asked (on very short notice) to teach the Sunbeams yesterday. I was curious to find out if they were as spectacularly uninformed as Crystal said they were. She was their teacher this summer. Turns out she was right! We also had some communication problems. When I asked them to guess what was in my box (scriptures) I thought Elenore said a "weapon."  I didn't realize till later that she had said a "ribbon." I was relieved. The lesson was The Scriptures Teach us Stories About Jesus. I was able to download it to my tablet, which was great, as the Primary was out of manuals. The children enjoyed watching me illustrating Bible stories on the tablet and guessing what they were. Katie guessed this picture was a man "dwowning," proving once more that Crystal's assessment of her students was on target.

A little piece of advice: If you don't want to  be drafted by the Primary, don't dawdle on your way to Sunday School!


  1. Sounds like the kids may be uninformed in the ways of the scriptures, but that they have pretty good idea 'bout life in the big city.

  2. Teaching three year olds is kinda like hearding cats:)
