IT: Innovative Tools for Children's Ministry CDROM
This CD is just absolutely amazing! It really does have everything a teacher could want or need. I teach Christianity to public school children from our local elementary school, grades first through sixth. I bought this to supplement the books that I currently use, but you really wouldn't need other books. Games, music, crafts, skits, the lessons are so complete. There are movie clip discussion starters using common kids movies that relate to the subject of the lessons. For instance, they use "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids", give you a scene that takes about 18 minutes with a start point and a stop point. After showing this scene, there are discussion questions that help the kids take what they saw and use it to relate to the lesson being taught. Another really unique application lets you put your own notes, downloads from other sites, scanned pictures etc. into the "My Stuff" folder so that you can keep additional information that you might come across right in the program. Everything can be kept in this one program! Last but not least, you get 3 CDs. One has the actual program, one has the Old Testament music and the other has the New Testament music that is also a part of the program's lessons. This enables you to review the music within the program and then take the music along with you to your classes. Everything found in the program is so fresh and interesting that even my unchurched students will find it cool. I was a little worried about spending this much on a CD that I really didn't know anything about, but it was worth every penny and then some!
