During this time when we can’t meet together in our physical spaces, we hope that these following weekly resources will provide an online option for you and your family to stay consistent. These resources are what your preschoolers experience on a weekly basis, so we are excited for you as parents to take part with your child!
We love you and are praying that God brings comfort and peace during this time. Below you will find this week’s resources. You can also find this content on our Heights App – found in the Apple App or Google Play stores.
JANUARY 16th PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM

- SAY: “Friends, come sit with me at the table. Let’s make a craft that will help us remember that it’s always better to share. Look on your paper. What do you see? (Pause.) That’s right; it’s a barn! This is like the barn in our Bible story today. We heard how the farmer had so much food that it filled his barn. Let’s fill your barn with grain. Use your marker or crayon to fill in your barn. (Pause.) Keep adding the grain until it’s all filled up. Jesus told the story we heard today to teach us something very important. The farmer in our story grew a lot of food for his family. He grew so much food that it filled his barn with a lot left over. So, he decided that he would build a bigger barn to keep all the food to himself. God gave the farmer way more food than he needed. The farmer could have shared and helped a lot of people, but he didn’t. Sometimes God gives us more than we need, too, so we can share with others. That’s the important thing Jesus taught us in this story. God wants us to share. I’m so glad we have Jesus to teach us important things. Who teaches me important things? [Bottom Line] Jesus teaches me important things.”
