I AM.... The Final Curtain
My classes are all studying the seven I AM statements Jesus made in the Gospel of John. If you aren't familiar with them, here they are!
I am the bread of life.
I am the true vine.
I am the good shepherd.
I am the gate for the sheep.
I am the light of the world.
I am the resurrection and the life.
I am the way, the truth, and the life.
I gave my students the assignment of coming up with their own I AM statements which would define them. Over several nights, I will post some of them. They are used with permission, boys in blue and girls in pink! These are from my eighth graders.
I am a spark for Jesus. Jose
I am the light of my mother. Jordan
I am right handed but wish I was left handed. Armani
I am a sparkling diamond. Peyton
I am the brave coward. Danita
I am and will always be a follower of Christ. Annaliza
I am the future leader of a family. Everett
I am who my peers make me. Tevvin
I am a conscientious person. Myles
I am secretly very intelligent. Evony
I am the better twin. Robert
I am seeking more but can't find it. Edward
I am here because of my Savior. Kameron
I am able to see others as they really are. Roseline
Finally, this is from a sophomore who was absent the day we wrote these in class:
I am the smile who brightens your day. Cydney
