Sunday School Observations

Sometimes it seems difficult to hold the attention of the little children for the whole instruction period. No matter how interesting the stories and experiences the teacher is prepared to tell them, the little ones become restless, and seek to divert themselves if no diversion is provided. This is because little children like variety in presentation.

It is desirable to have the children take part as much as possible: repeating things aloud together unites them and helps them to teach each other. The Commandments, the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, the names for God, and simple words or phrases, such as "God is Love," lend themselves well to this kind of teaching. In telling a Bible story in which new names figure, the teacher may pause and ask the children if they can say that word. This gives them a part in the class, and represents a real achievement for the shy child.
