At Presbyterian Day School, we know how to teach boys, reach them, and channel their energies in positive and productive ways. And we know from research that boys and girls develop language and writing skills on different timetables, it’s just how God created us.

Research also teaches us that boys need extra time to develop fine motor skills, one of the key components of writing. If you visit one of our Early Childhood classrooms, you just might spot one of the two in-classroom teachers breaking crayons or pencils. Now, why would they break a perfectly good crayon? Check out this video:

Our kids love superheroes—but we don’t outgrow our need for heroes as adults. We might not have the same heroes as our kids, but we all have people we look up to. Who are your heroes? What attributes make them stand out to you?

See if these three things don’t describe your heroes:

  • They use what they have been given in an extraordinary way for the benefit of others
  • Their efforts take courage and faith
  • They don’t seek attention or glory for themselves

We tend not to hold people in high regard who use their gifts solely for themselves or seek praise for themselves. Even fictional characters we admire—heroes like Superman or Ironman—don’t use their strength and might to score goals to improve their own life.

This month, we are teaching the boys about being a Humble Hero. A Humble Hero uses the gifts they have been given by God for others. This is what it means to give glory to God. The Bible says it this way.
