playing school


This has been my children’s favorite game to play for a few days now.  Mostly, they act out circle time.  It always starts with them arguing over who will be the teachers.  Usually they come to me and ask me to pick – I usually pick the children who haven’t had a turn being the teacher recently.  Then they usually argue over who is going to be Ms. Bennet and who is going to be me.  I let them sort this one out on their own.  Then, they start school!

I got the white board out that we wrote our Morning Message on each day so that they could write their own morning messages.  I love to watch how the different children go about doing this!  They are sooo cute!  Some would just write random strings of letters while others would try to sound out the actual words we used in our morning message.

Next they skip over everything else we usually do during our circle time and go straight to the Bible lesson!  They always do a Noah’s Ark lesson (I guess they really loved that story) – and I let them use one of my children’s bibles that I use to teach them their lessons.  Then at the end of the lesson they make up a prayer and circle time is over!  They’re adorable and I love watching them go through this process!  It entertains them all morning and I love to listen to their conversations while they play!
