Elevate Jr. Brainstorm (Part 1)

Notes on Elevate Jr.

Brief note of my boneheadedness – I forgot C3 was going on all the experts where there getting their expert on. Hopefully we can do this again in a couple of weeks. Maybe we could even get Steven Dilla to join us.

Strengths of elevate – flexible video, video training for small group. Take home piece is strong.

  1. Sorry I couldn’t make it, but I had to wash my hair.

    No really, it was my day off, and the kids and I did some day off stuffs. Consider me interested in the future. We’re using E/jr. on Saturday Nights, and moving towards it in all EarlyChildhood areas in June.

  2. Thanks for sharing this intro info. Would love to have joined also.
    We are on our 4th Elevate Jr. Series (center stage jr.). It has rejuvenated our faithful lead teachers and brought in new volunteers (ease of use & implementation, kinestetic activities, amazing videos & songs, top notch take home sheets). The kids loved it so much that they were excited to do Spy chase again while we waited on the next series! We do the Large group DVD format.
    Anyway, look forward to next time. Always looking for new ideas.

  3. Sorry I couldn’t be a part of the discussion today. Looking forward to the next one. We gave used Elevate or almost a year now. We will start Jr next Sunday and we nowhave enough curriculum of both to run through the end of the year. Gotta love conference specials. Thanks for putting this together.
