The Fruit of the Spirit

Each school year I like the end the year talking about Christian Attitudes/Character during Bible Time. I like the preschoolers to know that when you love Jesus, God’s Holy Spirit is in you.  This Holy Spirit works through us each day. The Fruits of the Spirit concept comes from Galatians 5:22-23 “…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” 
At Wee Disciples I like to take one fruit of the spirit to focus on each day of preschool. For example I would begin talking about love.  I introduce how God shows love to us, talk about love and describe what it is, give examples of showing love to others, challenge the students to show love to others, and point out when love is shown by students throughout the day.
The following is a YouTube Video that briefly explains the Fruit of the Spirit. https://youtu.be/TZrlDT3k84U
Here is a link to a song on YouTube to help teach the Fruit of the Spirit to your child.  https://youtu.be/xWoWDdeD-ns
Now challenge your preschooler to show the Fruit of the Spirit each day or work on one “fruit’ each day. Have fun using the Fruit of the Spirit to introduce and encourage Christian attitudes and character.

The Beautiful Oops..Make your own art!

Many times in the preschool classroom,  I have heard “my picture looks bad,” “I made a mistake,” or “this does not look good”.  Today I want to challenge the thinking that art has to look a certain way.   Art is an expression of who we are.   Making a picture that looks like another picture is fun and helps us learn, yet it is even better if you put your mark on it and do it a different way or your way.   Lets start today by showing the preschoolers the story “Beautiful Oops” by Saltzberg.   Here is a reading of the story:  Beautiful Oops! By Barney Saltzberg
The lesson today is that even a rip, stain, blob, drip can be art.   Its just a matter of how you look at it.   I hope that each of your children will learn to be proud and confident in their art ideas.   There is not a wrong way or right was to create a masterpiece!    Be creative and adventurous!
Another story I enjoy is called “The Dot”  by Reynolds.   Here is a reading of this wonderful story:  The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds | Read aloud Book for kids
Encourage your child to make a mark…anything is art!   And…don’t forget to sign your name!
Have fun creating art with your preschooler!
