Description:

Great Stories and Songs is an original and engaging contemporary Christian resource that explores a range of issues and themes relevant to children 8-12 years of age. The book makes use of stories, songs, creative activities, Scripture, prayers, and rituals to explore a range of issues and themes relevant to elementary school children.

An ecumenical program, Great Stories and Songs develops a wide range of knowledge and values associated with being a follower of Jesus. The materials provide a basis for ongoing reflection and action as Christians responding to life's many blessings and challenges. Themes include: "When We Listen," "The Freedom to Choose," "Riches in the Eyes of God," and "Accepting Differences."

Each unit in the leader's book contains an "Overview" with background information; "Outcomes" to assist in planning; a "Getting Started" section with ideas for introducing the unit theme to students; a modern "Story" based on the unit theme; sample questions for "Sharing" after the story; three or more individual or group activities; reproduceable pages; a Scripture reading based on the unit theme; a group prayer; a song relating to the unit theme (found on the CD, with notation in the book); and a suggested "Action" for a personal response by each child to the unit theme.

he Great Stories and Songs compact disc includes ten new songs professionally recorded by adults, children, and a backup children's choir. It also offers backing tracks for each song, ideal for performance.
