Continuing with our interest in listening, I set up the easel for my students to enjoy a little listening time as they painted at the easel…

I can’t express to you how much my students enjoyed this experience. Many of the children spent a long time at the easel just listening and painting…

While some of my students listened and painted, others might stop by and paint with them.  You see, the focus of the children was to just enjoy the experience of painting as they listened so when someone else joined in, the children didn’t mind as they were not focused on painting a specific picture – just painting and listening…

To set up the music at the easel, I plugged the headphones into my IPhone and placed the iphone in a baggie. I pressed the play button and let the music go through the list and start again…

Every child who painted took their time and some would begin singing out loud…

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.

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.
