Teaching Tip of the Week
Check back Mondays for the latest!
If you have been teaching a while, you know that occasionally you need to construct your own
visual aids (such as songs or memory verses.) When making visuals with words on them, be sure to
follow a couple of simple rules:
- Be sure not to use all upper case letters – they’re too difficult for many children to read.
- Try not to divide words. If a big word comes too close to the edge to fit, move the whole
word down to the next line.
- Try to divide sentences naturally (usually between two clauses.) This makes songs easier to
sing and memory verses easier to memorize.
