Bible Class Schedule - #3 Attendance

We will discuss different methods and ways of keeping an attendance record in a later blog, however, it is a good practice to always have some way to display the students’ attendance.  By acknowledging their presence every week on a small bulletin board or area, the teacher, the students and their parents can see at a glance how often the children are attending.  It is an uncomplicated technique, yet all will be encouraged and proud of their simple deed of attending class. 

I, personally, have found it helpful to include areas on the same attendance chart or a separate chart to record the times that the student brings their Bible to class, as well as keeping track of how many books of the Bible the student is able to recite from memory.  It only takes a minute or two, but I have seen a great deal of good come from this simple task.  (Hebrews 10:24, 25)
