Basic Sunday School Divisions
Children of differ widely in their characteristics according to their physical ages. For this reason many Churches divide their Sunday School children into three or more appropriate age groups:
In this manual, we will refer to Preschool children being those up to Grade 2. And to Primary children being those in Grades 3 to 5 (or optionally up to Grade 8).
The following points will assist you in teaching and working with these age groups. This will ensure that the Lessons you give, address their physical, mental, social, emotional and Spiritual needs appropriately:
Under-8 Year Old Children:
9-10 Year Old Children:
11-Plus Year Old Children:
Use these pointers to help you to understand and observe what your children like to do, the way they react to the way a teacher treats them, and to what the teacher teaches and says.
