Every Wednesday this Spring, our PreK/K KidsClub will be jumping into the world of children's literature. We'll be reading the stories and playing games as we explore concepts based on traits in which we need Jesus' help to cultivate in our lives: kindness, bravery, persistence, cooperation, faithfulness, and generosity.
PreK/K KidsClub will meet each week after children's choirs from 6:30-7:30pm, upstairs in room C223 of the elementary wing. This series is for kids from four years through kindergarten. Every family that participates will receive an ebook that coordinates with each week's lessons.
Here is a note from the series author
"When my children were preschoolers, they especially loved to read certain books over and over again. When reading Hop on Pop, they would always want to stop and run and hop on their dad lying on the floor. This activity became a ritual part of reading the book. When we read Green Eggs and Ham, we tried a meal of green eggs concocted from real eggs and green food coloring and of course, a side of ham. Whenever we read Where the Wild Things Are, we would turn on music and dance around like monsters, once even making monster masks to wear. Books have a way of weaving themselves into kid’s lives. Even in an age where a preschooler can probably operate a DVD player, computer, and maybe even an iPad better than their parents, books still captivate kids.
The appeal of books is rooted in the story they tell. While the art work is an appealing feature, if done well, the story is what drives the book. Jesus knew the power of a story and used it frequently when teaching. He knew that stories have the ability to influence a person’s thinking. Stories also tend to bring out an emotional response in us. Within that emotional response, an opportunity to learn something about life resides."
