I made up a little high five game on our clip boards for the children to try. My goal was to encourage the children to explore a little counting in the process and it worked out fabulously…

High Five for Hands!

We keep a set of clip boards on the back of one of our book shelves and on each clip board, the children found a paper hand with five fingers. The children were invited to get a clip board and walk around the classroom sometime during the day and see if they could get five classmates (or teachers) to give them a high five…

Each time a child got a high five, they could color in a finger until all five fingers were colored in!

All around the classroom and all through out the morning, children were giving each other high fives, counting to five, and coloring in their five fingers…

This was such a fun way to build community, count to five, and complete their own charts in the process…

I hope you have a great day today and while you’re out and about, go ahead and give someone a high five. It might just make their day!

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.'
