Weekly Recap

This week our story focused on the little boy who had a willing and generous heart. He only had a few fish and a couple loaves of bread, but he shared all that he had.

Our discussion centered around what our Kwav's kids have that they can share.


How can we use what we have to help others?

How can our two hands help others (at home, at school, in our neighborhood, in our community, around the world etc.)?

How can they use their mouths to help others (speaking kind words, etc.)?

A willing heart is connected to the memory verse for this week (see above), and the character trait we are working on is BEHAVE.

The goal is for kids to understand what it looks like to do what they are told with a happy heart.

Continue this conversation as well. Affirm them (notice and make a big deal of it) when you do see them exhibit generosity, a willing heart, and obedience with a great attitude.

Our "serve" activity this week was to write a short note to the children at Shalimar Learning Center.

We also had the kids decorate a border on a canvas book bag (the rest of the book bag will be decorated by the child who receives the bag). The books that were donated today are going into the bags and will be given to the kids at Shalimar. We are very excited about the partnership with this great organization and will continue to work with Shalimar, as well as other great organizations.

Next week we will have another "serve" activity for the kids to work on, but we are not asking for the kids to bring anything from home. If you are interested in donating a few dollars to help cover activity costs, there is a small donation box set up at our registration table.

Have a great week, and thanks for being a Kwav Family!
