6. Prepare the chalkboard as shown:

Have the students draw a circle around the oldest son in each family.  (The oldest son is not always the oldest child).  Tell the class that the oldest son received the birthright blessing if he was worthy.  But if he was not worthy, the birthright blessing was given to another son.

7.  REVIEW - You can review the lesson by drawing something similar on the chalkboard:

Ask the class questions from the lesson.  If they get it right they get to connect one of the dots.  Continue until all the dots are completed.  Then ask them the significance of this bowl of pottage?  What does the bowl of pottage have to do with the lesson?

    I just love the handout cards you do for each of the lessons. But I have a problem with my computer printing out the cards. It seems I can print them out in pdf, but not in word. You give me the choice with them up until lesson 13. Is there any way you could offer the rest of the handout cards to be printed in the pdf? I would really appreciate it. My students love the cards and look forward to getting them each week. Thank you very much for all the work you have gone through. Sincerely, Janice Fullmer in Alaska

  • Chelsea  - Delayed gratification

    Drawing from the classic Marshmallow test ( q=marshmallow+test&FORM=VIRE1#view=detail&mid=D2D5 4C49C10791B8297CD2D54C49C10791B8297C) I'm going to pass out marshmallows and tell the kids they can eat one now or if they can wait till half the class is over, they can eat two. I'm going to discuss delaying our immediate wants for better rewards in the future and how Esau failed to do this.
