May 2017 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends!

It’s time to “Come to the Castle” and hear stories from the King. We can’t wait to share both this theme and these stories with you. This month’s theme was inspired by Chris Tomlin’s new book, Good Good Father and we encourage you to get the board book version, Good Good Father for Little Ones, for your classrooms.

As we travel through the stories of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Hagar, Gideon, and Daniel, your preschoolers will learn that . . . …

God is always with me.
God hears me and gives me what I need.
God teaches me the way to go.
God protects me.

It’s a fantastic month that is sure to help your preschoolers know that God is with them all the time, and God’s got it.

We have a very special extra this month! For the first time every, First Look has created a Preschool Family Experience! (This will load on March 7, 2017.) We’re so excited! We have given you everything you need to implement an amazing experience for your preschool families as they “Come to the Castle” together. The Preschool Family Experience will be its own tab on the May Matrix. Be sure to look at this as soon as possible so you can start organizing your event!

Harper and Madi are in our clubhouse this month on the Wonder! DVD. They’re putting on a “Come to the Castle” play with all their friends. Wonder! is available at The Orange Store, and you can even sign up for a monthly subscription. Use this DVD to supplement a live Storyteller and/or Host for the Make It True section of the curriculum.

May’s Preview Video will be on the First Look website. You can download the video and script from the matrix—it is located in the Monthly Visuals tab. If you’d like to embed the video into your church blog, we have it available on Vimeo. Feel free to share the vision with everyone!

Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder as you give preschoolers a “first look” at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
