Rhythms / New Beginnings
Happy New Year!
The typical routine in most classrooms starts with seat work or group work. Naturally, attendance and hot lunch needs to be taken. Devotions, either by the teacher or the student, occurs as well as the Pledge of Allegiance. Students accept the rhythms and routines of what a typical day might look like and are comforted by knowing what to expect.
Many teachers begin their day in circles, sharing prayer requests or any other classroom "family" updates. This picture shows our 4th grade students in a circle giving each other high fives while they said, "Good morning, ________." This morning routine is a proven method for students to be greeted in such a way by name from their teacher and their peers.
It can easily be correlated to God knowing each of our names and greeting us every morning at Moline Christian School as we seek to do His will and walk in His ways.
