Be Prepared. . .Allocate at least one hour each week for lesson preparation. The more you prepare, the better your Sabbath School lesson will go for both you and your students.
This teacher's guide was prepared to make your job easier, so use it. Make an effort to understand how the lesson develops. How does one activity lead into another? What is the purpose of the various questions? When you analyze and understand the different elements, you can own and adapt the lesson with increased effectiveness.
Where possible, attend training sessions for Sabbath School teachers. When you are trained for a task, you feel more competent, understand how to do it well, and enjoy it more.
