Self-Control

posted Jan 6, 2020, 6:17 AM by Admissions Admissions


January’s “Christ In Me” character trait is SELF-CONTROL. Self-control is the ability to control oneself, in particular one's emotions and desires or the expression of them in one's behavior, especially in difficult situations. As we go through this lesson, our students will explore ways to
* Control negative impulses, in dependence on the Holy Spirit
* Think through consequences before speaking or acting
* Walk away from troublemakers
This lesson is also helpful for children who tend to overreact, have difficulty managing anger and lash out by shouting, hitting or biting. I encourage you to visit https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/self-control and check out the fun crafts and activities that go along with this lesson.

Generosity Event

posted Dec 20, 2019, 10:35 AM by Admissions Admissions

Our students wrapped up December’s “Christ In Me” lesson this morning by 
discussing the meaning of GENEROSITY and different ways that everyone can share, love, and care for other people. Mrs. Smith shared a video about the ministry of the Salvation Army and their global mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. After splitting into groups, the students made Christmas cards and sorted canned goods to be donated to our local Salvation Army. They read a few Bible verses and discussed how they could be generous and God-honoring in big AND small ways. Our activity ended with everyone singing the “Little Drummer Boy” - a song about a boy who had very little but gave what he had to honor the newborn Jesus.

December’s “Christ In Me” character trait is GENEROSITY. We will be exploring a bundle of ideas that help kids be more

* Willing to share
* Willing to put others’ interests ahead of their own
In addition, this lesson helps address greed, selfishness and a lack of compassion. You can follow along with this lesson at https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/generosity

Patience Event

posted Nov 22, 2019, 9:56 AM by Admissions Admissions

Our students exercised their PATIENCE skills this morning as we wrapped up our November “Christ In Me” lesson. Each group was given a paper heart with a scripture verse written on it, and they discussed what the verse and patience meant to them. They then wrote examples down on strips of paper that were glued to create a paper chain and attached to the heart. We will have our Patience Heart Chains displayed in the gym for anyone that would like to come look at them. The students then created double-sided PATIENCE/NO PATIENCE signs. Our 3rd and 4th grade class presented several short skits, and the students used their signs to signal if the characters were demonstrating PATIENCE or NO PATIENCE, and were asked to give ideas on how the characters could have handled their situations better. Ms. McGanney closed the event by teaching everyone the sign language motion for patience, and encouraged everyone to use it when they got agitated as a gentle reminder to themselves to calm down and be patient with the people around them.

   
   
  

Patience

November’s “Christ In Me” character trait is PATIENCE. Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset. Our students will be learning to
  • Wait calmly for an event or reward
  • Trust God’s timing
  • Be more tolerant of others’ shortcomings
This lesson also helps curb a quick temper, a demanding attitude, and intolerance for the failings of others. We would be delighted to have you join us in this lesson.

Respect Activity

posted Oct 25, 2019, 10:30 AM by Admissions Admissions

re·spect
/rəˈspekt/
n. due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions of others.

Our students explored this idea during our RESPECT activity this morning. 
They were separated into groups and brainstormed ideas of ways they could show respect to their teachers and their parents, played CHECK FOR RESPECT where they were given several short stories and discussed if the characters showed respect to each other or not, and wrapped up by playing EGG TOSS to demonstrate that people's feelings can be fragile, and you need to be careful with them just as you need to be careful to not drop and break an egg.

Acts of Kindness

posted Sep 20, 2019, 12:29 PM by Admissions Admissions   [ updated Sep 20, 2019, 12:31 PM ]

This morning our students were given the opportunity to show kindness towards others by decorating posters and labels for water bottles we will be donating to BRASS. They role-played different ways that they can be kind toward a friend, and were each given a glow stick at the end of the activity to remind them to let their lights shine bright for Jesus.

Psalm 37:5-6 “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”

Cooperative Meal

posted Aug 30, 2019, 9:13 AM by Admissions Admissions

This morning our students were separated into groups and given a surprise snack of Teddy Grahams and pudding. The catch? They had to eat it with their hands tied to their neighbors! They learned that good communication and cooperation were key to everyone getting to enjoy their snacks.
