Awaken the Wonder
May we never lose our sense of wonder.
Wonder by Bethel.
Teaching children science reawakened my sense of wonder. Watching them discover and explore the beauty and mysteries of creation was a blessing. There is no greater gift than to see the natural world through a child’s eyes.
“May we never lose our wonder,
Wide-eyed and mystified,
May we be just like a child,
Staring at the beauty of our king.”
Wonder Walkers is my new favorite book! “Only wonderstruck children, confronting nature’s gorgeous mysteries, could express themselves so intimately, creatively, and originally.” Kirkus Reviews
“Think and wonder, wonder and think.” Dr. Seuss
Recently I discovered a tree with “something” around the trunk. Anyone know what this growth might be? I wonder…. Is it living? Is it a disease? Why is it only on this tree? Is it safe to touch?
As I mentioned in a previous post, model asking wonder questions aloud for your children and encourage them to share their wonder questions with you. So that students can record their wonder questions on post-it notes, create a wonder wall or door.
Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5
