We had so much fun in Preschool this week! We used the story of David and Goliath to learn how to be brave! In our production time, we joined Super Go once again to defeat Vinny the Villain! Vinny keeps locking up our superhero gear in boxes so we can't get to them. By using our Super Book the Bible, we answer questions about the bible story to unlock our boxes and defeat Vinny!
Need to Know: "I Can Be A Superhero That Is Brave!"
Christ Connection: "Wow! David was brave! Can anyone tell me who our real superhero is? That's right! Jesus is our hero. God was with David when he fought Goliath so he didn't have to be afraid. God is always with us too so we no longer have to be afraid!"
David's seven big brothers joined King Saul's army. The army was fighting the Philistines. The BIGGEST Philistine was Goliath. Every day, Goliath stood in the valley. He'd yell: "Send someone to FIGHT me! If anyone can knock me down, we Philistines will work for YOU!" But NO one wanted to fight Goliath! Everyone was afraid of him.
Meanwhile, Jesse told David, "Visit your brothers. Tell me if they are well. Pack up the donkeys with grain and cheese and bread to give them." David walked and walked. Finally David saw the camp. He gave his brothers the food. But while David was there, he heard Goliath shout! David asked, "Why doesn't someone fight him?" But everyone was afraid. "I'LL fight him!" David said. "GOD will help me!"
"I don't need armor," said David. He picked up five smooth little rocks. He put one in his slingshot. He said to Goliath, "You have a sword. But I have GOD'S help!" David twirled the stone in his sling. It went around and around very fast. The rock hit Goliath's head. Big Goliath fell down-THUNK! God had helped David win the battle! Everyone said David was a hero!
