*Bible Verse: E verse, 1 Peter 1:25 "The word of the Lord endures forever." Songs for Saplings
We are making a little book for these verses and we sing them everyday during our "Bible study" time.
Bible verse activities from Totally Tots
*Brightly Beaming Resources: We are using the Preparatory Curriculum for 2-4 year olds for Shrade.
I try to blog about what we do for each "weekly" activity. It takes us about 2 weeks for each theme. We will be done with the Prep Curric when we reach 26 lessons! Not many more left. :) Then we will start The Letter of the Week Curriculum for preschool age.
We didn't get to these lessons last month, so we will do them this month!
*Brightly Beaming Baby: Jessna is now 10 months old for the Nursery Age lessons. Each lesson is 2 weeks long and includes literature, poems, nursery rhymes, Bible, speech & vocab, classical music, lullaby, foreign language (I'm going to do some Spanish and sign language), baby game, exercise and baby massage. I love these lessons because they give me a focus on what I can do to entertain my baby! It's fun and she loves it. I hope to do more things with her! I've been very slack with Jessna, but I do as much as I can. Keeping up with 2 kids is more than I can handle most days.
-water play- loves this!
Everyday Sensory Alphabet Activities by Melitsa Avila
We will be using a lot of these activities when we learn the letters!
We are going to do some fun activities with The Gingerbread Man with ideas from Totally Tots! They featured this all last month, so now that I have the ideas I will run with it. (Will try to do these activities this month)
*Fun With Colors
Every month this year I will pick a different color to focus on for one week. For March I chose GREEN! I will be using ideas from Teach Your Tot and Totline 123 Colors : Color Day Activities for Young Children (1-2-3 Series: Ages 3-6) by Jean Warren.
*Daily Music time: Songs from Music Notes and CD's we get at the library.
I'll be using this book Totline 123 Math: Pre-Math Activities for Working With Young Children (1-2-3 Series, Math: Ages 3-6) by Jean Warren. I'll try to blog about some of the activities that we do.
