I thought it might be fun to start a thread on your favorite teaching hint. It does not have to be Nursery
just moving forward the Gospel through our youth.
*One of the things I do is arrange on the wall just opposite of where I am teaching all those things I am teaching. Stories and Activities words, major points I want to make, and songs ( only the words ), and schedule so that with a glance I know where I am. This also helps my assistant and any adult visitors know what I am doing. I tell all the adults if you stay the words are on the wall so please help.
This way my eye contact can be with the "little ones" and not on a manual. If you can get their attention you can teach.
*Coffee filters for holding snacks. You can buy a lot cheap.
*Safety tip: turn chalk board upside down , putting tray up at the top. You can still use the chalk board but the tray is not at eye level for these little ones.
* Put contact paper or postal tape over the legs of the brads after they have been opened. This will make it harder for the little ones to get the brads out and pop into the mouth.
