*Bible Verse: "A Friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17
Songs for Saplings
We are making a little book for these verses and we sing them everyday during our "Bible study" time.

*Brightly Beaming Resources: We are using the Preparatory Curriculum for 2-4 year olds for Shrade.
We are almost done! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Then we will start preschool. See my Preschool Plans. I've been busy working on a lapbook that I will use for each letter. See my Pinterest board for letter A.
*Brightly Beaming Baby: Jessna is now 12 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!
-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!
Right now we are reading alphabet, color and counting books from lists at the library.
However, I did find this great blog with book crafts, so I will be checking it out for ideas: Adventures in Reading with Kids- highlighting a book a day for 365 days.
*Fun With Colors
Every month this year I will pick a different color to focus on for one week. For May I will do PURPLE since we didn't get to it in April! I will be using ideas from 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.
