Yesterday, I shared with you how we built “up” and today I would like to share with you how we took our class on an “up” walk…

Mr. Hayden read the book “Stuck,” by Oliver Jeffers.  If you’ve not read this book, I would highly recommend it!  The story begins when a little boy named Floyd gets his kite stuck in a tree…

In an attempt to get his kite unstuck, Floyd takes off his shoe and throws it into the tree…

Yep, you guessed it!  The shoe got stuck too!  Floyd then continues throwing one thing after another into the tree in an attempt to get the previous items “unstuck.”  The silliness of this book captivated the children, so much so that they all crowded around Mr. Hayden, anxious to see what Floyd would throw into the tree yet again…

After reading “Stuck,” Mr. Hayden invited the children to go on an “up” walk to see if they could find something that was “stuck” in the trees.  So we all gathered up our coats and hats and went outside to enjoy the unusually warm day…

When we got outside of the classroom, we immediately looked up.  Since there aren’t any trees around our driveway, there wasn’t much to see except for the sky on this beautiful day.  So we began our trek down the hill and through the outdoor classroom until we reached the woods…

Every few minutes or so, the children would stop walking and Mr. Hayden would invite them to look up and tell us what they saw…

The children told us that they saw clouds, a few birds, and lots of bare trees.  And in those bare trees, we did something that was stuck!  Birds nests were stuck high up in those trees!  But don’t worry, none of the children threw their shoes up into the trees to try to get it “unstuck.”

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.'
