This unit focuses on the letter F, the number 7, & Moses.
On Monday we began a new fingerplay, we read about God's people in Israel crying out to God & God hearing them & that He is going to send them a helper--setting the stage for Moses. For a math activity we used blocks to build towers--first we built a tall skinny tower & next we built a shorter & wider tower. And Lil J counted the blocks (perfectly I might add) after each tower was built. He practiced writing "F" & "f" on the tracer sheet I made. We did 'count on me', drawing & counting bricks. He did really well with this one. Then we did Spanish. Now most days I just read to Lil J in Spanish. I have lots of Bible stories in Spanish, that's mostly what I do. And I just rotate them around & around, pulling the one furthest left & when I'm done I place it on the right. The one I pulled today just happened to be about Moses--I just thought that was very cool since it lined up perfectly with our school work being about Moses this week (& the next 2 weeks after this week). Then we did reading, lesson #77, & then our songs--there was no specific song to go with today's lesson, so we just did The Books of the Bible & God Made the Universe. He asked me to read out loud to him, but I told him I'd do it later. He is starting to REALLY like the reading out loud--I hope it stays like this when we finish this book & move on to a new one. He REALLY seems to like this book. He was asking me to read to him from it yesterday also, but I wasn't at home & didn't have the book with me so I wasn't able to do so.
Yesterday at church we got his new memory verse for this week. And last night I looked up the "F" verse for school this week & we started going over them. The church one is very doable & I'm sure he'll have it down by the end of today, but the school verse is rather long. I'm not so sure he'll be able to fully memorize it. But I'm sure he'll try. He is such a perfectionist.
The church verse is: "I thank and praise you, O God." ~Daniel 2:23
And the school verse is: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." ~John 3:16
Onward we go to the weekend & then more of Moses next week...........
