Every Monday morning we start our week off with a Bible class taught by a good friend of mine. She graciously comes and teaches a 45 minute Bible lesson and I try and reinforce the lesson all week. This week she told me she was teaching the Fruit of the Sprit. I started searching for some kid-friendly activities. I found several.. but they were not as “cute” as I wanted them to be. .. so I made my own.
My Fruit of the Spirit unit includes:
*Posters for the 9 Fruit of the Spirit
*Art Project/ Craftivity
*Cut and Paste the Fruit of the Spirit in Order
* Write the Fruit of the Spirit in order
*Book with each Fruit explained in easy, kid friendly text (black and white version)
*Book with each Fruit explained in easy, kid friendly text (colored version)
We used these posters everyday this week. I would mix them up and pick two students to come to the pocket chart and put them in order each morning while we were on the mat.
Cut and glue the words in order.
All week I told them we were going to make something on Friday using the Fruit of the Spirit. I put my “sample” picture up on Friday morning.. and they were so excited!
Here are some of the finished trees..
I am pretty proud of these kids.. they can quote Galatians 5:22 without hesitation and after a week of discussing the Fruit of the Spirit they understand.
I teach in a private, Christian school. I know most of you cannot use this.. but I hope a few can! It was a fun week in our class and my first graders really enjoyed it and they have a real understanding of each of the Fruit of the Spirit.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
