• Present truths that transform

• Connect students with the cross through life application

• Produce abundant life in the hearts of students

________________________________________________________


Active learning allows students to get up out of their seats and experience God’s Word and the truths found in it. We believe when students experience transformational truths, they tend to stick with them longer and have a lasting effect on their hearts and minds.

The SPLASH Scope and Sequence is designed for Pre-K and K to have an Old and New Testament chronological overview over the course of two years. We know that there is no way for students to cover the entire Bible in two years, but we have done our best to highlight the points in Scripture that we feel are the most applicable to Pre-Kindergarteners and to Kindergarteners. Also we have chosen points that we feel will begin a biblical foundation for children as they continue on their journey with Jesus.

The SPLASH curriculum is designed for children in Pre-K and Kindergarten but can be adapted for older or younger children. These adaptations can be found in each lesson and allow for teachers to teach up or down according to where their students are spiritually.

   Teacher Leaflets

The SPLASH Teacher Leaflet informs teachers of instructions for activities and for sharing Bible truths without being bulky or wordy. SPLASH Teacher Leaflets, with their easy to use pull apart design, allows for teachers to share tasks and easily prepare for substitute teachers. The bulleted format also allows the teachers to be fully engaged with their students and tied to a teaching script.

What activities does SPLASH have for children?


Depending on the age-group, SPLASH offers a variety of activities in the SPLASH Reproducible Book, using the SPLASH Visuals and instructions for games, object lessons and role-play activities in each SPLASH Teacher Leaflet. SPLASH Home Cards even provide students with the opportunities to continue in active learning at home.

What help does SPLASH provide for the teacher?

Our SPLASH Teacher Leaflets are full of step-by-step activities for the teacher. The teacher leaflet has been designed so that a teacher has options for the Sing, Pray, Learn, Activity, Scripture and Home portions of the lesson. A teacher can then choose activities based on how much time he has to prep, the learning styles of his students and the setup of his classroom or Sunday School time.

When is it time to place a new order?

According to our friends in customer service, four to six weeks before the quarter begins will give your SPLASH materials plenty of time to arrive. However, if you get in a bind, we can always overnight your material the week before the quarter begins. Just keep in mind that there will be extra shipping costs.

Are there special lessons for Christmas and Easter?

One of the beautiful things about SPLASH is the theme lesson. The theme lesson is an additional lesson found in each quarter that covers a specific theme occurring in each quarter. Fall quarter has a special lesson on Thanksgiving. Winter has a lesson on Christmas, spring on the Resurrection and summer on patriotism. These lessons are not a part of our Scope and Sequence and are designed to be inserted on those special Sundays at the teacher’s discretion.
