For Dads on Thanksgiving

Darrin Patrick (via Twitter):

Fathers…be the chief memory maker, CEO of fun, legacy creator and tradition starter for your family this holiday season.

A good word.  Here is an even better one from Psalm 100:

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs

Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Learning Centers: Library Center

Library Center

This is a combination reading, puzzle, and games center.  It provides a place for quiet individual play or group activity.

Use the Center:

  • When reading to kids, be certain to engage them by reading the story in an expressive way—use facial expression and voice inflection. 
  • Be sure to show the pictures, and encourage the children to find and point out objects on the pages.
  • After you are finished, ask kids to retell the story in their own words.
  • When playing games, encourage the kids to take turns, and teach about sharing.

Clean Up: Have the children put the books, puzzles, and games away on the shelves as they found them.  Put puzzles together before putting them away.
