Meet the Twins (Eighth Notes)
Objects needed: Christian and American flags, eighth note
How many can tell me what flag this is? (Hold up a Christian flag). This is a Christian flag. There is a pledge that goes with this flag and it goes like this: I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the Savior for which it stands. One Savior, crucified, risen and coming again with life and liberty for all who believe. Here is another flag (hold up the American flag) that I am sure you can tell me what this flag stand for. Probably, you all could stand and say the allegiance to this flag. (Have the kids do this) There are many different kinds of flags that people can use.
Some people use their hand as a flag. Have you ever done that? Maybe you used your hand in school to get the teachers’ attention. You had a question about a problem that you did not understand.
Some people use a red handkerchief to flag approaching vehicles by hanging it on the end of a long board that is hanging out too far. It is to warn people that they need to use caution and not approach the vehicle to closely.
This note here is called an eighth note. It also has a flag to let you know that the note receives ½ of a count. Without the flag, what kind of note would this note be? Right, it would be a quarter note and then it would receive one count.
Every flag has its own use. God will flag us down when we go astray. He will do this through the pastor, Sunday school teacher, or your parents, or the Bible as you read it. It is God’s warning flag to help you make it to Heaven.

W – Watch out for those who will influence you to do things that would displease God
A – Always seek God’s Word when you are not sure what you should do in a situation.
R - Remember to prayer before you begin all tasks, take test, and do homework.
N – Never be in a hurry just for the sake of completing a task first. God want us to do our best. We can make serious mistakes when we get into a hurry.
I – In all things, thank God for helping you, and remember to give Him the credit. If we are overly confident doing tasks in your own strength and so not ask God for help, He may not help the next time.
N – Never do what everyone else is doing just because they think it is right or it if it seems popular. What does God say about it?
G – Go to the Word, God in prayer, your parents, and your pastors and seek help anytime that you need it.

(Alternative) Memory Verse Review for Psalm 150
Divide the class into two groups equally. One will be the “Xs” and the other the “Os”. As each side says the verse correctly as a group, select one person to place an “X’ or “O” on the Tic-Tac-Toe game board that is drawn on the dry erase board. Play until the board is completed one time. Say all the verses together as a group two times. Play two games this way.
Alternate: Select one person to say one verse at a time and allow them to place the X or O on the dry erase board. The next person will say the second verse and so on.
Take a two times to say the whole chapter together from memory. The first time you say the first verse and they say the second verse. Have someone else help lead the verse with you for the time the kids say their verse.
