Year-long Children's Curriculum
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 as she has written, planned, and led the teaching of Manna and Mercy: A Curriculum for Elementary Children. Says Schock, "I believe part of this success is that I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist with an understanding of how children learn. My different perspective has led to an elementary curriculum not like others. These lessons emphasize fun learning and making connections across stories and concepts."
Below are a couple of free sample PDF documents containing a descriptive overview, some hints for using the curriculum, a summary of topics and themes, and few sample lessons. To request the full year curriculum for purchase, email Hanna at firstname.lastname@example.org call 205-910-7931. She will send you 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!
Consultation with Hanna is available at thefollowing hourly rates depending on the financial circumstances of the church: $24 (lower income) $36 (middle income) $48 (higher income). These rates allow the fee to be broken up easily into 5 minute increments such as in the case of a 5-minute phone call or 45 minutes to create and mail materials for a game.
"My prayer is that you will consider this curriculum and that it will bless your children and your church!" -- Hanna Schock, Birmingham, Alabama, member of First United Methodist.
We encourage you to take advantage of this new curriculum!
