The Shoe Box: A Christmas Story by Francine RiversAuthor Francine Rivers once created her own God Box for talking with God. Whenever something was bothering Rivers she would write a prayer about it and slip it in her decorated cardboard box. It was this personal God Box that gave her the idea for writing this compelling Christmas story about a foster child named Timmy whose only valued possession is a shoebox. His foster parents, a young Christian couple, are of course curious about this 6-year-olds mysterious box. What could be inside? But knowing that his privacy is one of the few things Timmy has left, they decide not to pry. Rivers uses the backdrop of Timmys foster family, church community, and the dedication of his birth mother to illustrate what Christian faith can do. The Christmas pageant finale is a true heart warmer for all believers.
#ShoeboxStories: Roselyn and a Picture Book
One thing I remember from college that I have always used as a way for my students to learn about each other is Me-Boxes. Each year, I have students put together their Me-Boxes at the beginning of the year and we also use it as their memory boxes at the end of the year. I always ask parents to save their boxes because we reuse them again in May. I always use this Me-Box as an low key presentation. In Kindergarten, I have my students do one presentation each month.
The classic shoebox diorama is a childhood rite of passage. Although it can be used for schoolwork, your children may enjoy making them just for fun. Make one with your child today using this step-by-step tutorial. All you need is a box of some type, some paper, scissors, glue, and basic art supplies such as markers or crayons. The base can be anything— the traditional shoebox is only one option.
I make it through preschool, elementary, junior high, high school just barely , undergrad, and finally law school. I thought I was done with IT. After all, I have done my fair share of IT. Well, not even close to as much as I was supposed to, but still! I should be done! But NO, you have one kid and IT is back. The bane of my young life.
