During Tommy Larson’s breakout session on Worship as a Response (at The Gathering), I was about to chat with Ruth from Pasco Christian Church for a bit. She volunteers in the preschool class and sometimes fills in the elementary program as well. Here’s what she had to say about Tru:
Q: How long have you been using TruWonder?
A: Just over a year now.
Q: What do you like best about the curriculum?
A: I like that there is always a full night planned. I like the theme and how everything connects together. The explore part is my favorite because you are able to chat with the kids a bit, but you’re also about to channel that communication towards the theme or lesson for the night, making a bigger impact.
Q: If you could change something or improve, what would it be?
A: I would add more big visuals for the TruWonder. Sometimes a story only has 1 or 2 pictures, and sometimes it doesn’t have any. I find that the pictures really draw the kids in and it’s hard to keep them engaged when there isn’t something for them to look at.
