Wings As Eagles: A time of learning...

A time of learning...

For the last couple of months I have been teaching the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade age group at church on Sunday mornings. Oh, how I have enjoyed teaching this little group of eager learners! They are quick to learn and respond to the questions I ask.

I probably spend too much time preparing for my lesson time on Sunday morning, but I just enjoy so much putting Biblical principles into hands-on learning tools and crafts. Kids this age are so visual and hands-on that you need to have something to keep their attention.

I've been teaching on creation for the last several Sundays. It's actually a very good review for me also. I probably end up learning more in my prep work than the kids!

One Sunday we "built" a creation theme poster. I had different pieces cut out for everything that God created on each day and we built it, piece by piece. The earth started out covered in darkness (black poster), then God created light, the next day the waters and sky. On the third day we added dry land with mountains, trees, grass, flowers and all kinds of living plants. The sun, moon and stars were added on the fourth day.

On the fifth day, I had foam stickers and other stickers for fish, sea animals and birds, which were scattered in the ocean and in the sky. The sixth day brought land animals such as elephants, lions, cats, tigers, bears, monkeys and then finally man - Adam.

I had the kids put on the different stickers and pieces having them think on the different things that God created each day. They just loved it! And it added a wonderful addition to our Sunday School classroom wall! :)

I do so much enjoy and look forward to teaching every Sunday morning! I enjoy serving in this way and being able to teach some Biblical truths to these young kids' minds.
