In pre-kinder, there are three rules: obey right away, love and respect others, and raise your hand in silence. I sometimes refer to a rule when I am teaching a Bible lesson. Today I was teaching about when Samuel anointed David. “God told Samuel to look for a new king because Saul was not a good king,” I said, and I pointed to the rule poster on the wall: “Saul did not obey right away. Saul did not love and respect others.”
One five-year-old very seriously piped in, “And he did not raise his hand in silence.” I smiled at my cooperating teacher and continued with the lesson.
