We do Bible lessons every day before we start our homeschool lessons. We do a different lesson each week. I have created a binder for my children to keep their lessons in. I print my materials that I am going to need on Sundays. That way I will have everything ready for the week. It’s a good idea to get all of your lesson plans and materials ready before the week starts because it takes up a lot of time to do it each day. This is how we did the Jacob and Esau Bible Lesson.
Homeschool Bible Lesson Plans – The Story of Jacob and Esau
We do a memory verse every week and usually by Wednesday or Thursday they know it by heart. If you are teaching younger kids it may be a little harder for them. We also read from the Bible every night about what we are studying. In this lesson we read from Genesis 25 – 27. The memory verse for this lesson was “Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. Psalm 34:13-14. If you have smaller children, this may be a little hard for them. I would just do Psalm 34:13 if you have younger children.
Day 1 – On day one of this lesson we read the children’s version of this story. I read the story first and then I let my two children take turns reading the story. After we read the story we discussed what we had read and went over the memory verse. Day one is just basically going over the story and discussing it.
Day 2 – On day two I read over the story to refresh them. Then I let them read the memory verse to me and we discussed what the verse meant. Then I let the kids go online and do the Jacob and Esau jigsaw puzzle.
Day 3 – On day three we read over the story again and I had the kids say the memory verse to me. Then the three of us colored a sheet from the story. This is a very relaxing time. Coloring always seems to relax the three of us. You can choose the sheets that you want to color from the link at the bottom of this page.
Day 4 – On day four I had the kids read me the story and tell me what they had learned. Then I had them quote me the memory verse. We didn’t do a recipe with this lesson.
This was a short lesson. There wasn’t too much to do with this lesson. I hope this lesson plan helps you out.
