“Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might.” – Ecclesiastes 9:10a
In teaching a new concept, sometimes role playing works. Sometimes I approach it with a craft, game or an activity. I love finding word pictures to help too. Often times, applicable moments just arise in our lives. Look for those. This week, my husband was washing the car, and the kids wanted to help. Setting out on a task together is a fabulous way to teach thoroughness. As the car was being washed, we could talk ahead of time about the game plan for getting it done completely and the right way. We could teach to wash from the top down and how to do the windows at the beginning. Focusing on the details of doing it right and completely was important. We also talked about how it is important to clean up at the end to make the job complete. I encourage you to set out on a task this week that the kids would enjoy helping you with from start to finish. Teaching in real life situations will really help them grasp the qualities you are working to instill.
