12 Disciples

About 2 weeks ago, Ryan brought home a few fun tools from church to help us learn the 12 Disciples. The Sunday School Class gave all the kids pages with the disciples names, a photo & a number to help with learning. We have colored the pages and hung them up on the wall in the boys room so we can see it each day.
The other tool, which has been the key, is a song about the disciples. It is to be sung to the tune of "Jesus Loves Me" and has been great for learning. Ryan goes around the house singing the song and really knows them very well now. He picked up on it very quickly. It has been fun to sing together and know that they are learning something valuable too.
Here are the words in case you'd like to try and teach them to your kids..

Jesus called them one by one,
Peter, Andrew, James and John,
Next came Philip, Thomas too,
Matthew and Bartholomew.

James, the son of Alphaeus,
Simon and then Thaddaeus,
The twelfth apostle Judas made,
Jesus was by him betrayed.

Yes, Jesus called them
Yes, Jesus called them
Yes, Jesus called them
He called them one by one.

I remember that song, I sang it as a kid and learned my disciples that way. Did he learn the last part too?

Yes Jesus called them
Yes Jesus called them
Yes Jesus called them
He called them one by one

Way to go Ryan! Love you - Ny
