Dinosaur land in the sand table

We spent a week exploring dinosaurs all through out our centers.  As part of the children’s exploration of dinosaurs, they spent lots of time playing in our dinosaur land  which was located right inside our sand table…

To kick off our week of dinosaur discoveries, we read several fun books about dinosaurs and set up a variety of ways to explore dinosaurs inside and outside of our classroom.  The sand table was a very popular dinosaur center all week long…

The children enjoyed making their own version of dinosaur caves or nests…

For those of you who are wondering, we have logs (cut by my husband into small chunks), half logs (I bought at a pet store last year), sticks (from my back yard), sand, and the dinosaurs.  The children also brought brushes over to the sand table to brush off the sand from their dinosaurs….

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.'
