Well, the final SPACE activity for this school year, 2003-2004, is the SPACE summer missions party on the 22nd. I am so looking forward to it, it should be a great time of having kids share about their experiences. A few key goals:
- kids telling their story
Our missionaries don't do that enough, or well enough. We have to teach kids how to tell a compelling story for their experiences.
- kids seeing other kids having similar experiences.
It's a great thing for a kid to see that they are not alone in the type of things that have done and the emotions they are left with.
- a bit more debriefing after they have been home for a bit
- just to celebrate the kids
I'm really excited. If you've got some ideas on what you have done to celebrate something like this with your students, I would love to hear about your ideas.
