Each week we focus on what each child has learned through interactive learning and play. To start this entry off I would like to start with what we learned from the children. If you were to walk into our classroom my assistant and I would be blessed to share with you the joy we receive when caring and teaching our heavenly gifts called, “your children.” Watching their faces light up with each new accomplishment and waiting to receive their “thumbs up” & “high fives” is priceless. Sometimes we introduce new ideas unsure how the children will respond. When the children are responding with comments such as: “Again, again.” AND “I like this. This is fun.” OR “I want you to come and go on a bear hunt with me.” EVEN hearing them mimic and repeat their learning with their friends shows us that in their eyes we are doing something right. Daily my assistant and I pray the we do things right in the eyes of God leading and teaching. We teach and introduce new bible points and share examples how they can shine their lights. They are at such young impressionable ages, however, they are also at an age that learning these Godly characteristics is not always easy. For example, learning to share and be patient is a huge task. The children like to see the joy on our face and how much we light up as we witness each of them learning to successfully show love towards one another. We may be appointed at this time to teach your children, but your children have also been appointed at this time to teach us. Their interaction allows us to learn new discoveries through their eyes.
This week we continued exploring our unit book. We were finishing up our story time lines. During all of this they learn that every caterpillar arrives to go forth on a journey before being reborn into a butterfly. Our Caterpillars and Butterflies are walking with one another discovering how they can shine their lights along their journey together discovering how they can become reborn with Christ.
We worked on number matching, number sequence, story time lines, pattern sequence, color matching, and the letter B.
There is more for you to view on our class Facebook page. Make sure to check it out. You will not be disappointed viewing how each child learns. Next week we begin some Fall learning. We will be learning the life cycle of an apple tree. Each day will prompt new discoveries with the use of the apple theme. Trees need roots to help them flourish. The children will learn how to begin to start growing roots and flourishing in God’s wisdom. Godly wisdom helps us make good choices throughout our life.
Keep Your Joy 🙂
