FORGIVENESS

posted Apr 1, 2020, 4:31 PM by Admissions Admissions


April’s  “Christ In Me” character trait is FORGIVENESS. Learning to forgive others, asking them to forgive us in return, and understanding the forgiveness Jesus extends to all of us is a major part of the Christian life. During this time of staying healthy-at-home, I encourage you to check out this month’s lesson at https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/forgiveness and work through some of the stories and hands-on options with your child. I’m especially excited about “The Story of Jesus and Forgiveness” which has 15 special stories focused on Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection and is perfect as we all prepare to celebrate Easter in a few weeks. 

Perseverance

posted Mar 2, 2020, 8:14 AM by Admissions Admissions   [ updated Mar 2, 2020, 8:15 AM ]


March’s “Christ In Me” character trait is PERSEVERANCE. Perseverance is persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. Our teachers will be using ideas from https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/perseverance this month to encourage our students to:

* Be self-disciplined “finishers” who see a task through
* Deal constructively with discouragement
* Stay faithful to God, persist in prayer and resist temptation.

This lesson is also designed to help curb laziness, lack of motivation, and a tendency to quit when faced with challenges. We have enjoyed watching our students grow their godly character this year, and can’t wait to see them grow in Perseverance this month.

Responsibility Event

posted Mar 2, 2020, 8:07 AM by Admissions Admissions   [ updated Mar 2, 2020, 8:12 AM ]

This morning our students celebrated all that they have learned about RESPONSIBILITY this month with a Responsibility Conference. The only problem was that *no one* had set anything up! Each student was assigned a task, and together they quickly got everything set out, blessed their snack, and enjoyed a fun breakfast treat together. Mrs. Marty shared some fun stories and poems about how important it is to be responsible and to do your share, and representatives from each table were asked to come up and read a few scripture verses about RESPONSIBILITY for the group. After the conference, they all worked together to clean up and put everything where it belongs. If you would like to work on activities that build RESPONSIBILITY at home, please visit https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/responsibility and click on the Hands-On Options tab.
   
    

Responsibility

posted Feb 6, 2020, 6:44 AM by Admissions Admissions   [ updated Feb 24, 2020, 1:19 PM by School Admin ]


February’s “Christ In Me” character trait is RESPONSIBILITY. Responsibility is the state or fact of being responsible, answerable, or accountable for something within one's power, control, or management. Our students will be learning about ways to be diligent about:
  • completing tasks and chores well
  • caring for pets and belongings
  • caring for God’s creation and protecting the environment.
This lesson addresses being overly casual toward obligations and having an unwillingness to serve others or do menial work.

Please take a few minutes to view this lesson on the Kids of Integrity website at https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/responsibility and pick a craft, story, or Bible verse to to explore with your child this month.

Self-Control Event

posted Jan 31, 2020, 10:25 AM by Admissions Admissions

January’s “Christ in Me” character trait was SELF-CONTROL, and this morning our students had a chance to show what they have learned this month. They were separated into family groups and were given several different scenarios to talk about how they could exhibit SELF-CONTROL in that situation. Next, they played the “Giggle Game” where one person in the group was “it” and had to show SELF-CONTROL while the rest of the group tried to make “it” laugh (without touching them). We then watched a video called “What if Adults Had Tantrums Like Toddlers?” and had a good laugh at how silly the grownups looked. Mr. Hiskey ended our event with a demonstration called “Fizzy Mess” to show what can happen when we lose control. You can find it and other hands-on lessons at https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/self-control/hands-options 

  
  
  


Self-Control

posted Jan 6, 2020, 6:17 AM by Admissions Admissions


January’s “Christ In Me” character trait is SELF-CONTROL. Self-control is the ability to control oneself, in particular one's emotions and desires or the expression of them in one's behavior, especially in difficult situations. As we go through this lesson, our students will explore ways to
* Control negative impulses, in dependence on the Holy Spirit
* Think through consequences before speaking or acting
* Walk away from troublemakers
This lesson is also helpful for children who tend to overreact, have difficulty managing anger and lash out by shouting, hitting or biting. I encourage you to visit https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/self-control and check out the fun crafts and activities that go along with this lesson.

Generosity Event

posted Dec 20, 2019, 10:35 AM by Admissions Admissions

Our students wrapped up December’s “Christ In Me” lesson this morning by 
discussing the meaning of GENEROSITY and different ways that everyone can share, love, and care for other people. Mrs. Smith shared a video about the ministry of the Salvation Army and their global mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. After splitting into groups, the students made Christmas cards and sorted canned goods to be donated to our local Salvation Army. They read a few Bible verses and discussed how they could be generous and God-honoring in big AND small ways. Our activity ended with everyone singing the “Little Drummer Boy” - a song about a boy who had very little but gave what he had to honor the newborn Jesus.
   
   
  

Generosity

posted Dec 2, 2019, 7:09 AM by Admissions Admissions


December’s “Christ In Me” character trait is GENEROSITY. We will be exploring a bundle of ideas that help kids be more
* Generous (ready to give more of something than is strictly necessary or expected)
* Willing to share
* Willing to put others’ interests ahead of their own
In addition, this lesson helps address greed, selfishness and a lack of compassion. You can follow along with this lesson at https://www.kidsofintegrity.com/lessons/generosity

Patience Event

posted Nov 22, 2019, 9:56 AM by Admissions Admissions

Our students exercised their PATIENCE skills this morning as we wrapped up our November “Christ In Me” lesson. Each group was given a paper heart with a scripture verse written on it, and they discussed what the verse and patience meant to them. They then wrote examples down on strips of paper that were glued to create a paper chain and attached to the heart. We will have our Patience Heart Chains displayed in the gym for anyone that would like to come look at them. The students then created double-sided PATIENCE/NO PATIENCE signs. Our 3rd and 4th grade class presented several short skits, and the students used their signs to signal if the characters were demonstrating PATIENCE or NO PATIENCE, and were asked to give ideas on how the characters could have handled their situations better. Ms. McGanney closed the event by teaching everyone the sign language motion for patience, and encouraged everyone to use it when they got agitated as a gentle reminder to themselves to calm down and be patient with the people around them.

   
   
  

Patience

November’s “Christ In Me” character trait is PATIENCE. Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset. Our students will be learning to
  • Wait calmly for an event or reward
  • Trust God’s timing
  • Be more tolerant of others’ shortcomings
This lesson also helps curb a quick temper, a demanding attitude, and intolerance for the failings of others. We would be delighted to have you join us in this lesson.
