Workshop Rotation Model FunDay School Reinventing Sunday School
Why Change from Traditional Sunday School? Traditional Sunday School has remained pretty much unchanged for generations. Learn a bible story, talk about it, do an activity, go home and soon forget what you learned that day. The next week you go back and hear a totally different story and so on. FunDay School is following a movement in education that stresses that all children learn differently and we can’t just teach something one way. Retention is the key to learning. We remember: 10% of what we READ 20% of what we HEAR 30% of what we SEE 50% of what we SEE and HEAR 70% of what we SAY 90% of what we SAY an DO 100% of what we EXPERIENCE
FunDay School in a Nutshell: Teach major Bible stories and concepts through kid-friendly multimedia workshops: Music -Opening Art - How Great Thou ART Drama - ACTS of Faith Games - Gospel Games Audio Visual - Prince of Peace Productions Puppets The same Bible story is used in all of the workshops for four weeks--rotating the kids to a different workshop each week.
Benefits of FunDay School Not a “fixed” curriculum-lessons are chosen by the church. Twelve concepts and stories will be taught for the year. Teachers only have to commit for a 4 week period and they get to teach to their talent by choosing the workshop that fits them best. Shepherds, while committed for the full year, do not have to prep lessons. Instead, they are the go-to adult for the kids and get to form relationships with them on their spiritual journey. Rooms are decorated in themes that reflect the workshops using that space and give the WOW effect for those spatial children & adults and make it a fun place to visit.
