The Little Sweethearts curriculum is a three-year achievement series for preschool girls. The individual chapters are created with the understanding that children between the ages of three and five rely heavily on all five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, smell) to learn. The program is based on twenty-six chapters which are created to be expanded or repeated to cover a twelve-month period. Each lesson is divided into small sections, such as class time, worship time, snack time, and activity time. The curriculum is designed to be purchased for the mentor. We have included a reproducible handout and as many copies as needed can be made to provide a most cost-effective program.
There is a poster and sticker set available to purchase for each student. After the completion of each chapter the child is allowed to place a sticker corresponding with lesson on the poster. At the end of each year, a completion badge is available and may be presented to each child.
Year One: The Bible From A-Z utilizes the alphabet to teach biblical principles. For example, “A—Apple” teaches food is important for the body just as God’s Word is important for the soul. “B—Butterfly” introduces the concept that when we ask Jesus to forgive our sins, we are a new creation. “C—Church” shows the importance of attending church.
Year Two: Gardens, Gifts and Giggles relates gardening to teach the message of salvation; gifts of God which focus on love, eternal life, family and friends; and giggles (joy) to introduce children to the basics of a good, positive attitude.
Year Three: Miracles, Manners & Music introduces children to the concept that Jesus performed miracles and still continues to do so today; teaches the importance of respect for others; and helps children develop new skills and enhance their imagination through listening to music.
