Light tomorrow with today!

This quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (in the post title)  has always been one of my favorites.  It reminds me of the verse in the Bible about Faith.  Hebrews 11:1 was one of the first verses I had my son memorize when he was pre-school age. 

 

writing

“Now Faith is being sure of what we hope for,

and

certain of what we do not see.”  (NIV)

Back in those days, our family memorized a verse for each letter of the alphabet.  We still remember those essential scriptures now!

I require my Sunday School Students to memorize these very same scriptures before they are able to graduate from my 4th grade class!

 

I use many motivational methods to reward their hard work, like these warm fuzzies in a  jar.  When they fill their own empty jar to the brim with warm fuzzies, they are permitted to choose a  nice prize out of our “Treasure Chest”

It is easy to motivate them to do this wonderful thing.  I hope these scriptures will stay with them their whole lives, like they have for my own family members!

How do you motivate your students to learn?  I’d love to hear in the comments below!

Until then, here’s a hug from me!

 

 

        I am certain of what I hope for, and sure of what I do not see…

How ’bout YOU???
