Dominoes are a wonderful tool for play and I have a collection of dominoes that I pull out every school year for the children to explore. On this particular day, the children spent time tinkering with dominoes on our tinker table…

Dominoes have all kinds of wonderful qualities about them and my students spent time at the tinker table figuring out ways the dominoes can be tinkered with. Miss Cobb got the children started by showing them how you can line the dominoes up and then make them all fall over with one little push…

Dominoes make a wonderful clicking sound when they are tapped against each other and they feel smooth to the touch which makes them fun to handle and slide around…

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.'
