Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!

  • For older classes, I love this Ways to free Develop a Talent worksheet from Life's Journey to Perfection.

  • Unearth some talents by burying some coins or pieces of paper with talents written on them in some dirt or rice. Have your class, dig through and find them. Bring a larger tub to put around the older one, you'll have a better chance of containing the mess.

  • Use the scripture figures included in the Red Headed Hostess class packet to tell the story.

  • Talent booklet for you to write down the talents of each child. The other half is for them to draw of picture of a talent they have or want to develop as mentioned in the manual.

  • Every Star is Different coloring page. I recommend breaking out a lot of different materials for this one since you are teaching about the multitude of talents. Break out the glitter pens, markers, crayons, pom poms, stickers, and whatever else you have so long as it's washable!
