Making the Christ connection between school, home and church can often be difficult for children. What does church have to do with school and how do children begin to connect the dots between their different worlds? Using the ‘think-aloud’ process, this particular teaching method focuses on building children's ability to make connections between the Two Great Commandments, Fruits of the Spirit and stories that children encounter in everyday life. By challenging children to ask “what is Jesus doing in this story?” they will learn to make the connection between the Biblical and secular in their lives. This easy to use strategy can be incorporated into any existing Church School program and uses storytelling to uplift spiritual formation. Come prepared to collaborate with fellow educators, share your favorite Bible stories and picture books that connect to the Fruits of the Spirit and the character traits used by various school districts in this day long workshop that will equip you with the tools necessary to have two full years of curriculum ready to teach!
This workshop will take place April 21st 9-3.
Registration cost is $25 and includes a light lunch
Come prepared to set up your curriculum for the next couple of years
