Wow-it has been a busy week. I've gotten so many things done and I feel so productive. I really wish every week felt like this, but more often than not, I don't get much done and I feel overwhelmed. I am sure that by next week, things will be back to "normal" :-).
I have recently taken over the 2 year old class at my congregation. I have 5 two year olds and 1 eleven month old. I was so excited to take this class. I have so many ideas and plans. However, last week was not such a good class. There was an incident during "potty time". Let's just say that it involved a bloody lip and a toilet seat, but no one had to go to the ER, and the children seem to all have forgotten about it and will hopefully trust me again this week. I do plan to eliminate potty time from my curriculum.
This week's class lesson is on the fiery furnace and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. This story is from the book of Daniel and has always been one of my favorites. I thought I'd share with you my very large visual. I used a big piece of cardboard, some black paint, a sponge and some tissue paper to make this "fiery furnace". I hope the kids will enjoy pretending to be "thrown in", and I sincerely pray there will be no more bloody lips.
