Keep in mind my decorations are geared more to that age group. I have learned the importance of keeping them moving and transitioning to different parts of the room will keep them interested in learning as help them retain more of the lesson.

Inspired Lifeway Galactic Starveyors Missions Decorations

Galactic Missions. We have found it very helpful for kindergartners to sit at the table while watching the Missions Video. If we setup an area of chairs without table we have wiggly bodies that tend to be disruptive. Hence we have learned the table helps with them keeping calm and attentive. This is also the area in the classroom we have our prop telescope to remind starveyors at our world around us can greatly be affected by our small acts as one person.

    I’ve never heard of origami owl before but this is cool! I was surprised they didn’t have any charms for knitting/yarn craft or scrapbooking. I’d choose birthstone and initials as my first charms

  2. Susan Padgett

    I am not sure there are so many things. I first came across this jewelry about 2 months ago and I love it!!!! I would have to look at all the charms to see what I would want. Probably something to do with my grandkids, my cats and who knows!!!! I would love to win this!!!!

  3. Sylvia E

    I would choose
    1. In Memory of heart – for my parents
    2. Vintage Rose – Mom’s favorite flower
    3. Clear Crystal Crown – I was born in Corona (Crown Town)
    4. January and February birthstones – my Dad and Mom
