2. ALPHABET OCCASION - Use Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, Jesus, Books of the Bible, Heroes, Old Testament, etc. as "topics". Choose ONE topic for that session. On the board, write the TOPIC and then each letter of the alphabet with 2 blank lines next to it. Create teams and have each child take a turn giving a word from scripture that begins with any letter. (IMPORTANT - The words must be pertinent to scripture. For example, if the letter is "t" then an acceptable answer would be Thomas, tithe, Ten Commandments; answers that are not acceptable are normal everyday words like "the, them, tomorrow, to.") Once those two blanks are filled in for each letter, no one may give another answer beginning with that letter. Have the children "justify" some of their questionable answers. You'd be surprised that they will learn and what you will learn.
