To have Faith means to believe in something you can not see. Well, I can not see what the future will hold for my Kindergarten Stars, but I can have Faith and trust that God will give me the skills and love to start shaping each and every little life I touch in my Kindergarten classroom.
Lying is a difficult thing to teach. I want to explain to the child that this is one of God's Commandments. We can not lie if we want to enter the kingdom of Heaven. God loves us and will forgive our sins if we repent and ask for forgiveness. So......even though I can not explain how much God loves them and does not want them to lie, in my classroom we start by admitting that we lied, say we are sorry, and I try to explain that it is not good to lie and that it can hurt feelings, make people sad, and get us in trouble. These kids are my "kids" too!! :)
