Who are you as a result of who He is?
I have also challenged my students to seek out their identity in Christ. We then watched a student video every morning as a part of our classroom devotions.
Grab a marker and paper. Spend a few minutes thinking about your identity in Christ. Draw a picture that represents your identity in Christ.
You will not be graded on artistic ability, but you must be prepared to share with the group!

Educreations. “Best screencasting tool I use because it’s so easy. Change background, write while you talk, capture images and voice. Students can use to explain their process in math, or expand upon a picture story they created. Simply take a picture of the child’s work or let them work it on the iPad or laptop, then record the student’s voice explaining process. Engage students with video to capture ideas, share instantly, replay anytime. Publish current Educreations video before beginning a new one (only one new project may be worked on at a time). Here is a sample I made using Educreations to demonstrate how to create a screencast. Keep it short, less than 4 minutes for teaching and 1 minute for students demonstrating learning, and it doesn’t have to be perfect.” – Laurie Friedrich
