Inside Out Character Class: Team work and Believe.

“It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” – Napolean Hill

In this class, we played the memory card game to foster teamwork, focus, and believe. We played it where one person try to find as many pairs as possible. Then we had the team to help him, showing the ease of success.

Inside Out Character Class: Teamwork and Creativity.

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ― Albert Einstein

Our children are taught to think freely. Create! And work at your creation as a team. Creativity and teamwork, together, are powerful. This is what makes brilliant ideas work.

Activity: With two pieces of large paper and other simple materials, each team working together must design their most creative costume for their model. Each team has children of all ages. All the team members must work together. Teams are not allowed to rely on just a few. Older members must guide and assist the younger.

Inside Out Class: Patience (Video)

“Patience is a key element of success.” Bill Gates

We had another class on patience. When we master patience, we will master a key ingredient to love. And love makes a person complete.

Our patience activity were:
1. Counting plastic cups inside and out
2. Stacking and unstacking plastic cups without them falling apart.
Patience is what makes it successful. Not speed. And with patience, the speed increased.

Inside Out Character Class: Patience video

Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance – Samuel Johnson.

Love is patient (1 Corinthians 13:4). To learn patience is to learn love. Patience is that calmness in our hearts when everything else around us urges us to run, to be aggressive, and to not wait. But when we are patient with others, it helps them feel loved; thinking “I am important enough to you that you are willing to wait for me.”

Patience Activity
1. Split to groups with equal number of students
2. With a straw, blow the cotton ball from one end of the line to the other.
3. The key is not which group finishes first. Rather, which group has the least amount of deviations of the cotton ball from the line.

In our exercise, one of the teams finished quickly. But because they were not patient, their group had the most number of cotton balls being blown off the line. So from first place, they had to settle for last place.

Inside Out Character Class: Creativity

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” 
― Walt Disney Company

Today’s class was about being creative. Every child is different. Every child has potential. Every child is unique. God has given each child special gifts and talents. We need to learn to be creative with these talents and gifts. Learn to explore. Learn to be dangerous. Learn to think out of the box. And not hold back on what we can do.

Our game was to build the longest line only with things found on the children’s bodies.. They can use anything they want as long as it is from the body and not outside materials. It is amazing to see how creative these kids were. Using things that I would not have thought of.

Ephesians 2:10: For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

BDS parenting workshop at Eden Childcare Centre

We were privileged to be invited to teach a parenting workshop on “Raising Emotional Intelligent Children” at Eden Childcare Center Bukit Indah. Emotional Intelligence, which is a much neglected aspect of growing up is crucial for our children to learn because emotions affects how and what children learns.

Character Class: Emotions 2

“Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions” – Pablo Picasso

The power of motivation lies not in the knowing. It lies in the feeling of what you know and letting that feeling move your knowing forward. No wonder, emotion is spelled E-Motion.

Today, our children learned more about identifying feelings. At the end, they made Masks of Emotions. Their own emoji, that will be used in the subsequent lessons.

“For the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)
