I already shared how to make story stones and I must say, if you haven’t thought about making story stones with or for your class, that you really should. Our students LOVE them…

Ms. Abby introduced the story stones to the entire class during circle time…

Since story telling is new to our class, Ms. Abby told the story for today. Each child took a turn picking out a stone and Ms. Abby would include that stone in the next part of her story…

The pictures on the stones influence the direction of the story. As the children get the idea of how to use the stones for telling stories, we will invite them to tell their own stories…

For now, we set the story stones out on a table for the children to explore on their own…

Here are some more ideas for story telling that I would like to try…

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.'
