One of the first things I noticed using Zoom was that the children struggled with paying attention to a little image of me on a small screen. I had been praying for the Lord to give me a clever idea and He did! One day after a scheduled break the hand puppet “Darryl the Donkey” showed up to teach math instead of me. I had to position myself off-screen, but I could still see their faces, and every one of them was totally engaged. They all were eager to answer any and all questions Darryl asked them. The 30-minute time slot flew by, and the kids actually seemed sorry that the worksheet was completed and Darry had to leave…before Mr. Jim showed up. Isn’t it comforting to know that the Almighty God of the universe has the time to give an idea to a teacher in order to help a handful of students have a better school day!
