Our students love to color so we thought during our color review week, we would mix it up a little and let them try coloring with crayon bundles….

In almost every case, the children began by making the crayons go round and round on their paper…

Trying to get all the crayons to touch the paper at the same time was an interesting challenge. The children had to learn how to tap the crayons on the ends until they were all level…

Some of the older children began to make other shapes…

This child really didn’t see the point in keeping the crayons together so she took all the rubber bands off so she could make a picture of her family…

Others enjoyed exploring this interesting and different way of creating with crayons…

Usually by the end of each day, all the rubber bands were removed from the crayons – LOL!

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.'
