  2. Children should identify Proverbs as a book of wise sayings.
  3. Children should identify Song of Songs as a love poem of Solomon.


Possible Lesson Plan:

  1. Open with prayer.


  1. There are some Proverbs in the Children’s Bible Reader, pages 139-140. Read the Arch Book on Proverbs. Have each child pick a favorite Proverb and write that proverb on a small piece of paper for him.


  1. Discuss the love of God: Does God love us? Why?  How does He show His love for us? How did He show His love for Solomon? For Noah? For David? For Hannah? For Ruth? For Moses? Do we love God? How do we show our love for God? How did Solomon? How did Noah?… Sing “Jesus Loves Me”.


  1. Make a Valentine… for God? For one of His children in a hospice or orphanage or hospital? Use red and pink paper hearts, doilies, stickers, etc.


  1. Make a Phylactery: A phylactery is a small box containing a tiny scroll with God’s Commandments worn in Bible times by Jewish men on their foreheads to remind them of God’s words, as it is written in Deuteronomy, “Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.”

Take a small gift box or matchbox

      for each child.

Roll his verse from Proverbs into a

      tiny scroll and tie with yarn, and

      put it in the box.

Wrap the box in brown paper (or piece

      of paper bag).

Cut 30-inch piece of seam binding for

      each child and glue center to back

      of box and let dry.

Tie to child’s forehead.


  1. Close with prayer.
