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.”

We normally update it at least once a week.  


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 – David

David is a great model for us to remember to rely on God when things seems to be too big for us to handle.  What is your giant?  Is it a problem you are trying to solve?  A bill you would like to get off your back?  A person you need to confront? A child care center you want to run with excellence?  God knows.

David is also a good example of a person who messes up and is still dearly loved by God.  We probably won’t go into detail about David’s poor choices at this age. It is good to know, though, that God’s love truly is unconditional.
