Teaching in the Interest Areas

Classroom

Do you remember the show where a design team did makeovers of entire houses? Wouldn’t it be dreamy if there was a show for Extreme Mission Friends Classroom Makeovers? You would have to send a video showing your current Mission Friends classroom, and an early childhood design team would come to re-make it into an awesome space. They would set up all the interest areas in a way that preschoolers thrive in learning about missions. Imagine your tears of joy at the big reveal at the end of the show. All you could repeat saying is, “Wow!”

Missions and Learning Styles: Full Body Missions

You may find that your missions group is full of children who cannot sit still. This may be a reflection of their learning styles. They may be kinesthetic or hands-on learners. These learners need to move, act out, and touch to experience and process new material.

Listen Up: Bringing Missions Home for the Auditory Learner

As you look at your GAs, RAs, and CAs, you will see a lot of differences. Children learn in different ways, and they interact with information in different ways. Many children learn best through hearing; they are auditory learners.

Incorporating Learning Styles in Missions Education

Every child is different. All children have different likes and dislikes, different levels of ability and education, and different learning preferences. The children we teach may be visual learners, auditory learners, or kinesthetic learners.
