While I don’t care to see myself in videos, I do find it very funny when students mimic me . . . and they do. In a tone easily recognizable they repeat things that I evidently say quite often. Things like, “Three things I appreciate about you are . . .,” and “Now that doesn’t sound like mutual respect, does it? Take care of it . . .” and “Remember our agreements . . .”
One learning activity that I hope the kids will mimic for the rest of their lives is to mark their scriptures as they read them. I love reading a book behind someone who leaves notes in the margin. I saw this marking idea on Pinterest and have used it several times.
It’s fun to see what kids find interesting and their favorite parts and helps to identify doctrines or principles not u+
See that typo? It’s because I’m sitting in the Spokane Airport and as I was typing that sentence a former student walked by on his way home from his mission! It was so great getting to hug him hello. And he was so kind . . . and full of mutual respect. He had someone take this picture for us.
Welcome home Adam! I'm so proud of you.
