Come Follow Me Sketchnotes + Lesson Plan: “Ye Shall Be Witnesses unto Me”; July 1-7; Acts 1-5

“Ye Shall Be Witnesses unto Me”
 July 1-7
 Acts 1-5

Happy Monday!  

I am taking our kiddos on an extended family adventure this week.  We’ll be away from civilization for most of the week, and will most likely not watch all of the videos listed below. 

On the long drive there we’ll listen to the Scripture Stories podcast (see Tuesday below) and I do plan to read the verses listed and discuss them as much as possible.

In all reality, this plan may go completely out the window and if that’s the case, it’s okay.  We’re not going to cram everything into one day when we get home.  We’ll do what we can and then move on.

Our Family’s Study Plan:

Monday: Read Acts 3: 1-8. Watch Peter and John Heal a Man Crippled Since Birth video

Tuesday: Listen to The Apostles Lead the Church, Peter Heals a Man Scripture Stories Podcast

Wednesday: Read Acts 4:2-21. How can we be bold in our Testimony of Jesus Christ?

Thursday: Read Acts 4:32-5:11 and discuss

Friday: Read Acts 3:12-26; 4:1-3. Watch Peter Preaches and is Arrested video

Saturday: Read Acts 4:5-21  Watch Peter and John are Judged

Sunday: Read Acts 5:12-42; Watch Peter and John Continue Preaching the Gospel

How to use Scripture Sketchnotes:

TRACE. You can also trace these into your scriptures or journal using a light box or a sunny window.  My husband made me an awesome lightbox, but this one is a great option for you to purchase.
COLORING PAGE. Use as a coloring page for your kids to work on during family scripture time.  Write additional notes and insights on the pages as you go. You could add all the completed sketchnotes pages to a binder to keep as a reminder of the gospel topics you’ve discussed together.

STICKER PAPER. Print on clear sticker paper and cut apart the doodles to add to your scripture journal or into the margins of your scriptures.  (This year, I am using this free wide-margin New Testament PDF that I had printed and spiral bound at a local copy shop.  But there are many wide-margin options available.)

Printing on clear sticker paper allows you to add color to the doodles using colored pencils, but still be able to see the words beneath them.  I have tried out a few different kinds of colored pencils on this sticker paper.  Ergosoft pencils and Prismacolor pencils work really well.
