Day 8 - Intentional Goodness in the Classroom

Books are amazing. Think of all the books you have read in your life and what a gift reading is. How many of our students do not have their own books at home? I’m afraid that it is many more than we would like to imagine. I have read many books in my life, but the only Book that has read me is the Bible. Let’s think about ways to encourage our students to have access to books at home. Check out Duffy Books in Homes  for some ideas.

A verse to ponder

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

An intentional blessing for the classroom

Today is “Give A Book” Day. One of the most significant gifts we can give is a book. Think about a child on your campus who most likely doesn’t own his/her own book at home.  Find a special book in your classroom library or personal collection and give it to them. Tell them they do not have to return it and that all you ask is that they treasure it and read it at home.

A focus of reflection

Are you able to give a book to a child? Is it legal? Of course! I give books to my teachers frequently and I always watch in amazement at how excited they are. Giving is one of the greatest intentional acts of goodness and giving a book is super special. How often are you reading the Book of all books? Take time this weekend to re-invest your study in God’s Word. It is an investment into your professional development that has eternal benefits!
