This weekend in preschool, the kids will learn how Joshua listened to God and made a wise choice.

The Story

Battle of Jericho  Joshua 6:1-20

We’ll finish the month with the story of Joshua and how he knocked down a city wall by just walking around it! God told Joshua to lead his men to walk around the city of Jericho’s wall without weapons, just trumpets. That must of sounded pretty unusual to Joshua, but he was wise and trusted God and did what God said. This story is a favorite of preschoolers everywhere. In preparation for, or following the weekend, get out the building blocks and build a tower together. March around the tower seven times, pretend to blow horns and knock the tower down. This will be a fun experience and will help your preschooler remember the Bible story.

This Month’s Memory Verse

Be strong (right hand in fist held up in front of self) and courageous (Left hand in fist held up crossed over right).  Do not (both hands press out like STOP) be afraid (hands up by face and pretend to be scared).  For the LORD (point up with right arm) your God (point up with left arm) goes with you (both hand on hips with strong super pose).  Deuteronomy 31:6 (hold hands open like a book)
