Great time at Georgetown Christ Lutheran

August 3, 2013 at 12:27 pm Leave a comment

Great conference going on at Christ Lutheran in Georgetown, Texas. Lots of good speakers. Excellent participation in my directors’ sessions! We really go to some issues and I very much thank those who participated well.

Later this week I will post what resources I know for teacher training in how to deal with learning differences, so please watch for that.

I promised to post the contributions submitted for teaching conflict resolution to children. Unfortunately our time was cut short (and oops, my fault, profuse apologies.) Unfortunately not so many contributions as I would have liked. They are posted below. Please take the opportunity to submit further comments and contributions!
Contributions of ideas on how to teach conflict reduction to children

Dr. Becky Bailey parenting Book:: Easy to Love: Difficult to Discipline
Ed : Notice that “Conscious” is often a word denoting New Thought or eastern thought, generally critiquing Western/Christian morals and values as if they were unenlightened. Check it out for yourself. Is this in line with your church’s mission? Are there Christian resources that help with our aim?

Using books with stories that resolve conflict that are age appropriate. (Okay, so it sounds like she uses stories that model conflict resolution of the kind children might themselves face.)

Teach us of verbal contact and use of facial expressions. (Okay, sounds like we have already instituted direct teaching, as we discussed, something we normally never addressed years ago. Please list for us suggested resources.)

Social Stories Books (Okay, like what?)

I give the child words to use to communicate to the child bothering them, for examp,e, Sammy, it makes me sad/mad/hurt when you take away my toy. (Great. Would like to see videos of some well-done examples, along with list of potholes.)

Oh, dear, not many contributions. I apologize for inadvertently cutting the time short. I was going by my notes and knew I couldn’t not hold your long, but ah well, we needed more time.

The Government is not a Village. Dialogs across boundaries, busts myths, reveals real science. Offers a positive way forward in early education policy. Go to or Swim with the Dolphins, not with the Sharks Sharon's classic book on conflict reduction available at This is instrumental music, great for calming and focusing. I recommend it for your classroom. WHOLETONES

How could this session be improved? No, this was perfect actually. Loved that it allowed for discussion.
“Knowledge of presenter is outstanding; makes it easy to sit through training.”
“Very helpful to use in my classroom.”
“I enjoyed Sharon’s enthusiasm, eagerness to connect with her audience and her down to earth personality that really brought forth new tactics in teaching, but also interesting insights to people skills in all! I will implement much of her lesson into my classroom as well as my home and personal life.”

“I love love loved the tidbits of the history of teaching you included…. I would love to dig deeper into how … education has changed and [talk about how to] “get back to basics.”

What did you like best about this seminar? She had an emphasis on Christ centered education. (This was in a church affiliated preschool.)

What did you like best?

  • Where to find books [relating to] morals.
  • Plenty of time for discussion was given.
  • Explanation of the class which I could understand well.
  • Learning how to incorporate values into our planning.

What I like to hear most, and often do: “We want to have you back. When can you come? “
