What if? (Story telling tips)

Story telling is a great way to build language and creativity in your children.  The most obvious way is to read books to them.  Here are some other ideas:

  1.  Play the “What if?” game.  What if you found some money on the street?  What is the sky was orange instead of blue?  What if you could dance like a ballerina?  It’s endless.  Be sure to let them pose what if questions to you.
  2. Make up songs to familiar tunes.  The words can be as simple as what you would say in a normal voice to creating rhymes.  “Well, I’m going to the store to the store…”  Or “Did you ever see a snake, baking a cake, down by the bay?”
  3. Start the story and take turns adding to it.  “Once upon a time there was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead….tell me what the little girl did.”

Family in Focus

Did you know that we are praying for you?  We are.  And we draw a name from our watering can every week or so to find a family (or team member) to focus on.  When we draw your name, we will ask if there is something specific we can pray for you or your family.  Experience tells me, this usually comes at a really good time!  The names for the  Family in Focus will be posted (without prayer requests) on the board in the entry way, along with the memory verse for the month.  That way you can pray along with us and be a part of blessing various families in the Garden City community.

 

Scholastic Book Club

Look out for our Monthly book catalogs through Scholastic. Keep your eyes open for those $1 books.  Great deals offered especially for upcoming holidays.

 

Bible Theme - Noah

Noah is one of those characters that I believe you could spend a year talking about.  Think about it!  Noah began to build a huge boat when his neighbors ridiculed him for doing so.  Construction is a good theme for this as well as doing what you believe to be right even when others don’t agree.  Then there are the animals…SO many animals and so many different kinds. Then there is the weather.  What happens to the earth when there is so much rain?  And finally, there are rainbows. (We have prisms now to make our own.)  And there are promises.  What does it mean when we make a promise?  What does it mean when God makes a promise?  Thankfully, we can trust Him!
