LESSON: The Wise Builder! (Lesson and Circle Talk Time Combined - about 5 minutes).
Teacher (Intro).

The last few weeks we have been learning some awesome things that Jesus taught us. And, the Bible Bees have been helping us! This week Bonkey Bee is here to help us.

Bonkey Bee: (1) (Jumps around) B-z-z-z-z! Hi Everybody!
Teacher: Here is the story that Jesus taught: (2) There were two builders. (Point to wise builder). This builder was wise. That means he knew how to do things right. He wanted his house to be strong. So, he he built his house on a big strong rock that wouldn't move. Then he got his hammer and started building. Let's all get our hammers and build along with him. Bam-bam-bam. Bam-bam-bam. (Let children hammer on the table). Oh, you are all such great builders! O.k. Let's put our hammers down now so we can hear the rest of the story.
Bonkey Bee: (1, 3) There! We're all done!
Teacher: All done! Let's peek inside and see how he's doing! (Teacher lifts flap on window).
Bonkey Bee: (1) Hey look! He's smiling! He looks happy!
Teacher: Yes he does! I think he feels safe and secure. He knows his house will be strong because he built it on a rock. But, look at the other builder. He was not wise. (Shake head no.) He thought it would be nice to build his house on the pretty, sparkly sand. (Point to sand). So he got his tools and started building too. Let's get our hammers and help him. Bam-bam-bam. Bam-bam-bam.
Bonkey Bee: (1) Bam-bam-bam. Bam-bam-bam. (4) O.k. We're all done!
Teacher: O.k. Let's put down our hammers so we can hear the rest of the story.
Bonkey Bee; (1) Let's peek inside!
Teacher: (Teacher lifts flap on window of foolish builder's house).
Bonkey Bee; (1) Uh-on. He looks a little worried.
Teacher: Maybe he knows that he didn't do it right. (5) And look what happened next. The rain came down. (Wiggle fingers in a downward motion) Woosh! (Move hands faster). Let's all make sounds of the rain. Woosh! (Let children make the sound and motions of the rain). And the water rose up (Hold hands out in front of you and raise slowly). Blub-bl-bl-blub-blub. Let's all make the sound of water bubbles. The wind blew hard on the houses! Whoo-ooh! Whoo-ooh! Let's all make the sound of the wind. WHOO-OOH! WHOO-OOH! (Let children make the sounds with you). (6) CRA-A-A-A-SH! Look what happened to the house that was built on the sand! It fell down!
Bonkey Bee: (1) Poor builder. Now his house is all gone!
Teacher: All gone. (3 again) But, look at the house that was built on the rock! Its still standing! Let's peek inside and check on him after that bad storm. (Lift flap)
Bonkey Bee: (1) Hey, look! He's still smiling!
Teacher: Yes, he was safe and happy all during the storm because he built his house on the rock!
Bonkey Bee: (1) I want to be like the wise builder!
Teacher: Jesus told us how. He said if we listen to what he says in the Bible, and do what he says, then we will be like the wise builder. We will stand strong. His house was built on a rock. (7) And, God is our rock! Listen to this verse: (Read Psalm 71:3). God is stronger than anything! And, even when the storms come, we know we can trust in him. We are not strong on our own. But we can trust in God. He is the strong one. When we do what God says in the Bible, we show that we trust in him and love him.
Bonkey Bee: (1) What happens if we don't do what he says?
Teacher: Remember the man who built his house on sand? Jesus said we will be like that. All his hard work was gone! He didn't build his house on the rock. (Shake head no). That's what happens to those who turn their back on Jesus and his words.
Bonkey Bee: (1) I love Jesus and his words. I'm going to do what he says in the Bible! I want to be like the wise man!
Teacher: What does your Bible say? (Lift bible cover).
Bonkey Bee: (1) Bee...a DO-ER!
Teacher: I want to be a doer too! (8) We will all do great if we do what the God says in the Bible! Now we have some fun crafts and activities to do after snack. But, first let's pray and ask God to help us be like the wise man. (Place Bonkey Bee on the bulletin board).

CIRCLE TIME: (What does this mean for me?) Combined with Lesson (see above).

Transition: Let's bow our heads, close our eyes and fold our hands. I'll say the words first and give you time to say them after me if you'd like to.
PRAYER: Dear God, AND do what you say.
Please help me Help me to bee..
