It’s time once again to make plans to attend our annual Church Weekday Education
Workshop. I hope your staff has saved the dates, July 24-25, to be a part of Hand in
Working Together. You may check out some of the conference topics at
www.bgco.org. To register, use the Workshop registration form on this newsletter or
register online beginning May 1st.
Clara Mae Van Brink will be our keynote speaker. Clara Mae is a Lifeway Multiplier
from Canton, GA, and leads conferences from her years of experience in leading
children’s ministries in the local church and ministering to families and young
children. Sheree Jordan has done a great job securing an excellent faculty with
many choices of topics for the 2009 Workshop.
It is our prayer that those attending this year’s Workshop will be blessed, motivated,
and encouraged in their journey in weekday ministry. Please contact any of our
officers or area reps if you have questions or comments. I look forward to seeing
each of you this summer!
“The Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands.” Deut. 2:7

What Makes a SMART Teacher?
SMART teachers are those individuals who are always in a learning mode— ready to learn
and eager to know something more about the children they teach. They have a joy and love
for the children they have been entrusted to teach. Encourage your teachers to begin to im-
plement these ideas in their teaching opportunities.
Make learning meaningful. Relate and motivate the child to the Biblical content you
are teaching. Remember learning that is personally relevant is more motivating.
Focus on process, not the outcome. Preschoolers enjoy the process of doing an activity
more than the outcome of an activity.
Engage the emotions. Our emotions help us set priorities. When a child gets excited
about the things he sees in the room he begins to determine what he wants to do first and
then moves on to the next opportunity.
Build bridges to new learning. The child learns when he can link what he already un-
derstands to something new.
Cultivate meaning. Help the child to make learning his own.
Provide choices. The child likes to make his own choices. When he makes his own
choice, he is motivating himself and has set a self-determined goal.
Plan for new experiences. Provide for novelty, something out of the ordinary and out of
the routine.
Keep the child moving. Just like exercise, movement increases the blood flow and
oxygen to the brain.
Un-stick the brain. Plan activities that cause the child to do some cross-lateral move-
Laugh with the child. Laughter increases the immune system by increasing the white
blood cell activity.
