Getting Families involved...

I've decided that every month I will hand out a invitation to the children to give to their parents. This will invite them to sing our current primary song in FHE that month. I will provide the words to the song for them on the invite. This month, I bought those craftstore foam cutout hearts and pasted the invite onto them so it's more sturdy and they won't loose it as easy. I might stick a magnet strip on the back so they can hang in on their fridge, but...we'll see if I get to that this week.

I am a true believer that what is reinforced in the home will stay with the child for a life time. And, I think it will truly help the little ones get the words perfect.

This along with the CDs that were made should be a powerful teaching boost to knowing the songs for the program.
