Notes of Lessons: Scripture, Class Ib

[We have thought that it might be of use to our readers (in their own families) to publish from month to month during the current year, Notes of Lessons prepared by students of the House of Education for the pupils of the Practising School. We should like to say, however, that such a Lesson is never given as a tour de force, but is always an illustration or an expansion of some part of the children’s regular studies (in the Parents’ Review School), some passage in one or other of their school books.—Ed.]

Group: History • Class Ib • Average age of children: 8 • Time: 20 minutes

I. To increase in the child the love and knowledge of God.

II. To give her a spiritual thought from the passage taken.

III. To teach the story of Josiah and the Finding of the Law.


Step I.—Tell the story to the child, only giving the necessary explanations.

Step II.—Read the story in the words of the Bible carefully and slowly with expression.

Step III.—Let the child narrate the account of the Finding of the Law, keeping as far as possible to the words of Scripture. Try to make her feel the lesson without stating it actually, i.e., due reverence for the Word of God and repentance for sin.
