Kum-ba-yah or Kumbaya is a traditional, Christian song which literally translates to “Come by Me”. It has been sung for over a 100 years and has evolved into a folk and campfire song.
This product is a for a 6 page, PDF coloring packet, a 2 page skit and 2 pages of prayer/blessing cards to correspond with the song. I conducted this lesson with my Sunday School class, grades K-2. Then, during the church service, we performed the skit, played the song with the bells and sung! It was a great lesson and the final production was loved by the entire congregation.
The 6 page packet includes a cover, 2 pages explaining why kids pray, 2 pages exploring the lyrics of the song and a final page asking the students to illustrate God with them. The packet is in black and white with coloring images displayed without. As we read the packet together, the kids colored in the corresponding pictures. Then, there are 2 pages of prayer cards included. These would need to be copied and cut out. I had the kids write one word to add in our class prayer, whether it was a request or a blessing. Lastly, there is a two-page skit that follows the text in the packet. This can be used as a read aloud during Sunday School class or as an introduction for some performance of the song.
