Supplies and Equipment for God’s Unfolding Story for Older Preschoolers

Along with the lesson plans, the PDF lesson files will contain many of the needed printable and reproducible items for each session. All you need to do is print, photocopy, and follow the instructions with each one.

In addition to the printable resources, it’s assumed that certain permanent items are provided for the classroom by the church. Consumable supplies (glue, paper, etc.) will be needed week to week and are identified in the lesson plans. We recommend that the church maintain a resource room to be shared by all preschool classes. See below for a list of supplies and equipment to be maintained in the resource room.

We would encourage you to review the weekly list of needed supplies several days in advance so if the items you need are not kept in the resource room you’ll have time to acquire what you need before arriving unprepared for the lesson.
