We have been exploring our sense of hearing by listening to things around the classroom but we started our day by listening with our simple to make listening tubes…

The Listening Tube by Teach Preschool

Each child got their own listening tube during circle time and was invited to listen to each to other and then tell what they thought their neighbor was trying to whisper through the tube. This was very challenging but some of the children figured it out while others just giggled…

We also sat very quietly and listened for sounds we could hear around our classroom.  It was very quiet but we could hear the sounds of the heater and Mr. Hayden walking…

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.'
