CURRICULUM FOR 5TH AND 6TH GRADERS
Like many families, you’d probably say there is never a dull moment in your home! There are so many challenges facing today’s families. If there have been major changes in your family in the recent past, there are even more “stuff” to handle.
Over the next four weeks, your preteen will be discussing family “stuff.” Specifically, we’ll be attempting to answer several questions about the topic:
UNIT THEME: RELATIONSHIPS
5/7- Why Do I Have to Be in This Family? (Genesis 25:19-34; 27)
5/15- Are They Really My Family? (Ruth 1; Matthew 12:46-50)
5/21- Why Can't I Have My Own Space? (Genesis 26:12-22)
5/28- How Can I Help My Family? (John 1:35-51)
The purpose of these lessons is to teach preteens to consider their place in their families and how they can make family life better.
As you talk with your preteen about these matters, I would encourage you to share your own family frustrations you had as a kid. Also share precious family experiences you remember. Help your preteen see that being part of a family has both challenges and rewards!
