      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

•   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.
