Teaching Babies, Ones, and Twos

Baby

Ten-month-old Trey reaches his hands over the side of his high chair and drops a toy onto the floor. He leans over to look for the toy as you pick it up and put it back in his hands. He giggles as he once again drops the toy and leans over to watch you pick it up again. This game is repeated several times as you play together. Trey is having fun, but does this show you anything about his faith development?

Teaching in the Interest Areas

Interest areas play

Abby creates a bookmark in the Art area to remind her to pray for the people of Romania. Charlie and Jesse build fences with chenille stems in Blocks as they learn about farms in Romania. Rachel matches colors of paper fish and hears a teacher say that people in Romania like to fish. Abby moves over to the Books area to sip pretend tea as she browses. These preschoolers are involved in learning as they take part in activities in the interest areas around the classroom. In these areas, teachers offer various activities that relate to the missions area or missionaries. Preschoolers learn about missions because it relates to the activities they are doing.
