Teach

In my line of work, I spend most of my time with preschoolers. My main job is to transport the students safely to school and home again. BUT there is so much more to the job.

While on our route, Yeymi (my bus attendant) & I work on many of the required school readiness goals.

  • Buckling & unbuckling a car seat
  • Letters
  • Numbers
  • Colors
  • I Spy
  • Silly Songs
  • Rock, Paper, Scissors
  • Math
  • Friends
  • Respect of others
  • Taking turns

These are the same games that I used to play in the minivan when my own children were little.

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6

I used to think this verse applied only to the spiritual training of our children but as I have gotten older I see that it applies to everything that we teach to the younger generations.

BUT remember, children are always watching you and they learn far more by observing others than we realize.

O Be Careful, Little Eyes

O be careful little eyes what you see

O be careful little eyes what you see

There’s a Father up above

And He’s looking down in love

So, be careful little eyes what you see



O be careful little ears what you hear

O be careful little ears what you hear

There’s a Father up above

And He’s looking down in love

So, be careful little ears what you hear



O be careful little hands what you do

O be careful little hands what you do

There’s a Father up above

And He’s looking down in love

So, be careful little hands what you do



O be careful little feet where you go

O be careful little feet where you go

There’s a Father up above

And He’s looking down in love

So, be careful little feet where you go



O be careful little mouth what you say

O be careful little mouth what you say

There’s a Father up above

And He’s looking down in love

So, be careful little mouth what you say

What are your actions teaching those around you about life and about God?

  1. I have the privilege of working with young children, as well, Barb. And you are absolutely right: kids watch what adults do, not just what they say. And even a five year old can spot a phony from a mile away. Sometimes when people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I’m a professional role model.😀
