Each week I share teaching tips using the hashtag #TeachlikeaChicken. Why in the world would you want to teach like a chicken?! In D&C 10:65 it states, 

"For, behold, I will gather them as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, if they will not harden their hearts" 

When a hen's chicks are in danger, the hen raises her wings and clucks wildly. No matter where her chicks are, they come scurrying back and she protects them underneath her wings. The hen may get hurt but the chicks stay safe. As a teacher, you are the hen. You are calling to your chicks, or class members, to stay safe. Dangers are everywhere in this world as we continue to battle against Satan and his army. It is your job to teach and strengthen to keep your chicks safe. It is up to your class members to decide if they will listen. 
Teach like a Chicken this week.

Remember as you share your lesson plans, preparations or thoughts with #TeachlikeaChicken you could be featured on our account. Please note- your use of the hashtag gives me permission to use the photo. I will always credit you.
