Where is Heaven?
As a teacher, I always like lessons that are easy to follow; ones that flow well without a lot of stopping to read instructions or find your place. In the first lesson alone, I could see that this curriculum is simple to follow. Everything you need is right there in an organized format that even the most inexperienced teacher would understand (I say this as one in that category). It only took me about fifteen minutes to prepare. There is a list of objectives and supplies needed at the beginning of each lesson. and the words in bold are what you would say to your kids or students.
I couldn’t figure out what she was doing at first. Of course after she told me it was obvious. She was pretending to ice skate. We talked about how excited she was to go ice skating for her very first time, something we hope to do in the near future. Then we talked about how Heaven is a lot like that special thing she was looking forward to. I told her about Colton Burpo, the little boy the curriculum is based on, and how he got to visit Heaven while he was having emergency surgery for a burst appendix. Noelle was excited to hear more about Heaven and Colton’s experiences there.
After she drew her picture, I asked her what she would like to do most when she gets to Heaven and she said (and I did not tell her to say this), “Give my crown back to Jesus because He is the King and He should have my crown.” I just love this girl!
