Teaching Tips Zone

It's no mystery that teaching kids can be challenging. There are lots of ways to teach - but the more creative you are the better!

This zone is not lessons, but tons of help, ideas and guidance on how to teach more effectively.

It is loaded with ideas you just need to try, like Drawing the Bible or Using Shoes to Teach or even Beach Balls!

If you have a fun, creative or effective teaching method, be sure to share it!
