How You’re Changing Lives
From a Staff Member: “One of our kids, a 3-year-old from The Jungle, was going to be gone the following weekend because she was having her tonsils out. Her awesome leaders wrote her a card and had all of her small group friends sign it. The mom told us it was the best thing she could get!”
It’s great to continue talking with your kids and leading them well during Movie and Music time. It helps them to stay focused and have more fun. But how can you communicate with them without distracting the rest of the room? Here are some tips to help.
- Show appropriate volume. If a kid needs an encouraging direction to focus or a kid talks to you a little too loudly, use a whisper voice and encourage them to do the same so the rest of your friends can still hear the video.
- Use silent redirection. If a kid is talking too much to their neighbor or they’re rolling away from the group, you can look at them with a kind face and use signals like a finger over your lips to remind them to be quiet or waving them toward you to remind them to rejoin the group.
- Go to the kid. If a kid wanders off or gets just a little too far away and a silent signal doesn’t work for them, gently move closer to them so you can give them direction in a whisper voice instead of calling out across the room.
- Go with the kid. If a kid needs to throw away a piece of trash or use the restroom and they’re not sure where it is, get up and walk with them. It will help them arrive at their destination without needing further direction. As a bonus, you can teach them to walk behind the other kids instead of in front of them.
Lead well no matter what challenges pop up each weekend. Find more tips, tricks, and training here.
