I have been thinking about motivators for my class. I def want to use the Every Penny Counts idea to keep them interested in answering questions and to foster a habit of giving to missions.
I have also been thinking of how I can stay in touch with the kids between Sundays. Here is one idea I want to try:
Question PostcardsI went to my local Christian bookstore and purchased these (created by Tina Ledbetter - available from Universal Designs).
My plan is to jot a postcard (on Sunday afternoon) to each student in the class. The message will be short, but will include two things:
- Great to see you / We missed you
- A fill-in-the-blank or question based on the upcoming lesson
My ConfessionI have for a long, long time been drawn to writing notes and letters on Sunday afternoons. BUT family members can tell you - She (ME) can write great notes and letters, but ummm. . . doesn't do it as often as she should.
- Will you pray that I am consistent in writing notes and letters this year?
- Will you share with us some of your Back-to-Sunday-School (KidsLife) ideas?
Notes from Carol
I have the awesome responsibility of writing tween devos for Zonderkidz. Right now we are having a Doodle Race on my blog (here). Kids (and adults) can submit a doodle (simple drawing) for the race. . . Zonderkidz is offering prizes to two winners (a free book and publication in my devos). . . Thanks, Zonderkidz! ! !
I'd be honored if you share the race with your fam and friends. . .Post it on your facebook, website, or blog. It is going to be fun!
