The Digital Primary Teacher’s Guide provides a full quarter of flexible session plans to help children in kindergarten through grade 2 experience the Bible story. Sessions follow a five-part sequence: Prepare, Connect, Encounter, Explore, and Bless. Activity options—such as Create, Move, Discover, Make Peace, and more—invite children to dig deeper into the Bible story and make connections to their own lives. Order one for each Primary class. Permission is granted to share sessions with co-teachers of the same class.

This teacher’s guide also includes Shine Connect for Elementary, a free digital resource for those teachers leading children through online Christian formation sessions—whether live-streaming or via video conferencing. Shine Connect for Elementary is a robust guide with weekly online session plans and accompanies the Primary, Older Elementary, and Multiage teacher’s guides. This free resource will become available online on January 20, 2021, and will be accessible through the QR code or URL found in the teacher’s guide.
