The popping path!

When my grandsons popped over to the preschool classroom last week, they found a popping path all set up and ready to go…

There was no need for me to explain what to do or how to do it, the popping path was an invitation to “pop!” and the boys went popping down the path right away…

The bubble wrap popping path had three sections. In the first section, I put sheets of colored construction paper under the path to brighten up the path a bit and to add opportunities to recognize colors along the way. I added some clear packing tape in places around the path to keep it from sliding around the floor as the boys walked on it…

On the second section of the popping path I put round wooden number disks under the bubble wrap so that the path would have a different feel to it and the numbers on the boards also gave us opportunity to identify numbers or do a little counting as we popped down the path…

And the third section of the popping path was just a strip of bubble wrap without anything extra underneath and taped to the floor…

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.'
