After reading the preceding statement and as the Day School Bible Teacher, I thought that will be my mission statement PLUS being sure THAT EVERY CHILD KNOWS: “JESUS LOVES ME THIS I KNOW, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO !”
This is my favorite time of year to SLOW DOWN and connect with children through music and play – yours and mine. Yes, I said “slow down”. It’s even more important during this busy season for children to feel secure in their routines, and special because of the rituals you create with them in everyday moments. Allow me to share some ideas from music class and my own family that will not only strengthen brain and family connections, but also help the PK3 and PK4 kiddos learn the music for our Christmas worship service coming up on Dec. 19th at 11am!
We have studied lines (there are so many kinds!), color (warm vs. cool, primary and secondary, mixing), and shape.
Just like last year, our theme in the art room is “beautiful oops"! Beautiful Oops is a really fun and interactive book by Barney Saltzberg. The children and I love this book because it helps take any anxiety out of “messing up”.
