For over a month now, we’ve been having “official” Family Home Evening lessons with the Bubbers King.
Before that, we regularly read scripture stories and sang church songs, but didn’t sit down and have official lessons.
But that all changed when Melissa read my post on Bubbers’ first day of nursery at church and recommended we buy this book:
It is the lesson manual for nursery.
And it’s phenomenal.
The lessons are simple, engaging and absolutely touching.
And with the new year, Bubbers’ nursery class started over at the beginning, so we started with them.
And even though Bubbers has an excellent attention span, I was still nervous about how well he’d sit for our new official lessons.
….. I broke out one of my trusty visual schedules!
I learned about them in SLP graduate school and it was love at first sight.
Now I use them for everything from teaching primary, singing time and Cub Scouts to doing treatment with children who have cognitive impairments.
And they all love them.
So I attached pictures to correspond to each part of our FHE lesson and prayed their magic would work on the Little Man.
And sure enough, he stared with apt attention when I showed it to him and told him what we were going to do for each picture.
And as soon as he figured out how it worked, he couldn’t wait for us to finish each picture so he could pull it off and move it to the “all done” strip of velcro.
And now, the minute we say, “It’s time for Family Home Evening!”
Bubbers runs and sits in the non-teaching parent’s lap.
And can’t wait for the fun to begin!!
