Second Grade Sunday School
Today I had 7-10 boys in Sunday School. I think it was seven. But, I said eight all day, and it felt like 10-12.
But, it went better this week. I planned a LOT more to do so that the time would flow from one activity to another pretty quickly. All boys actually helped…they work at about the same speed. We made cards and they all seemed more settled among all boys.
We took a nature hike and talked about creation and things God made. They are so sweet.
I asked if they knew where the story was. One boy said, “Galations.”
“No, but it does start with a G”.
And it didn’t take too long after that.
I asked one boy to read the verse. He said, “Okay, but I don’t do very well with short words.”
I thought that was funny.
Later, one kept lagging and I said, “You are so special, but you do need to stay with the group.”
“I’m special?” he asked, sincerely.
I said, “Sure you are!”
He said, “How am I special?”
I don’t know him that well yet, but I spit out a few things…and by the day’s end, I knew how special he was.
What he loves.
How he learns.
Why he lags behind the group. He knows how to buy himself a little more time to explore!
The boys all wanted to pick purple flowers off a bush. And I let them, just this once.
And they all wanted some rocks for their bags out of the flower beds…and I let them…just this once, because it’s a lesson.
And they all wanted rose petals, but I told them there were briers, and they listened.
Making their Grandparent’s Day cards, they wanted to tape the flowers on the cards…and we did, with the only tape I had…scotch tape.
I love teaching second grade Sunday School. And I love little boys. And nature walks.
