Greetings! To my sister Bible Class Teachers,
I hope this article finds you well and staying encouraged!
March has come and gone, and I am still waiting to get into my classroom and teach. The reason I am waiting, is because after our flood and a few other reasons, we have been doing some renovations on our church’s building! It is very exciting to think about the improvements happening! Remember when I talked about blessings in disguise? New lights, carpet, paint, doors, walls, etc. Walls have been moved making some classrooms larger and some smaller, but it will for sure, all be worth the wait. Talk about perking up your Bible class!
In the meantime, I am here, working on articles!
Now, about these Kings. (You could actually develop this idea for any Bible person, but at the time we were learning about Kings.)
They were a thought that turned into something tangible and interactive. They took some time, but I love teaching with things that allow my students to have some interaction during the Bible lesson.
These little guys were fun to make thinking about how they would actually help my students remember!
They stand at least a couple feet tall and can break down for easy flat storage if you use Velcro to hook the robe and arms together.
I introduced them to my students as to who they represented and began by handing out the pictures that fastened with Velcro onto the front of the robe. The first picture handed out was the letter of the Kings name. “R” was for Rehoboam, “J” for Jeroboam, and “A” was for Asa.
The back of the pictures and front of the robe have corresponding numbers for placement onto the robe. The numbers on the pictures, (#1-whatever number you go up to for however many pictures you have) need to be the order in which they are talked about within the lesson because you don’t want to put up picture #8 while you are actually talking about picture #3. I also have the numbers marked in my notes so I know when it is time for a particular picture and can ask the students, “Who has picture #1?” and so on. When we find who has the number I am asking for, the student gets up and adds their picture onto the robe on top of the corresponding number of their picture.
My students loved meeting these Kings and getting to know them! We also referred back to the pictures for our review and I had them tell me how each picture related to the King we were reviewing.

I hope you can use this idea to help your students recall Bible truths.
