We have continued exploring shapes in our class and this week, we made shape turkeys…

I set out circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares from all different colors of construction paper for the children to use in their shape turkeys.

To make the turkeys, the children started by gluing their circles on their piece of white paper…

And then they began adding shapes to their circles to create the rest of their turkeys…

And some of the children used a marker to add facial features and legs and turkey feet….

Each child’s turkey turned out quite unique. To be honest with you, the turkeys didn’t turn out at all like I thought they would when I planned this idea…

But when I look up at them hanging on my wall…

They make me smile…

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.'
