Today the children explored letters with alphabet stamps and a book titled “The Alphabet Tree” by Leo Lionni

This really was a very simple activity that included paper leaves, alphabet stamps, and ink pads. The teacher read the book to the children first and used this activity as a way to extend the concepts from the book into another learning opportunity.

Many of the children stamped the letters of their name on leaves. It is so interesting that the most important word for them is always their name!  Other children chose random letters and their focus was more on the stamping experience rather than trying to stamp a word.

Later the children will cut out their leaves and glue it to their own alphabet tree but for today – they took their time talking, stamping, and exploring all the different letters of the alphabet.

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
