May Monthly Plan- 2013

I totally skipped April!  I had way too much going on.  My husband and I went to Palm Springs for a week and I've been spending the last two weeks getting life back in order.


*Bible Verses: We use verses from Songs for Saplings. I love that all the verses are songs. It makes it so easy to remember.

-O verse- "I will Obey your Word." Psalm 119:17

Bible verse activities and printables from Totally Tots

Story time: We are going to continue using the Calvary Curriculum (FREE) and do Bible crafts as well as read from our Bible story books.

We also do free Bible lessons that we get in the mail from The Mailbox Club.

Focus of the month: Obedience
*Resources from Character Concepts- Crossroads of Character and Hands on Character Building
*Excellent lesson plans from Kids of Integrity (free!)

*Milk N' Honey Preschool:
I have abandoned my original plan which was took too much time to prepare with 2 little ones running around.  But I might try it again in the fall.  So here is what we are currently doing which is working well although I don't feel quite as creative.

-Reading- BOB books with printables (see Pinterest board for links to blogs for free printables)
All About Reading

I like using this because I don't have to plan anything and the activities are intentional, fun and full of great learning!  Thumbs up for All about Learning!
Be sure to pick up your FREE activity book from All About Learning.

-Writing- tracing name, sensory ebook, drawing

-Crafts- Paper plate crafts that will include Jessna

*Also with Jessna  who is turning TWO years old this month I'm going to try 5-10 activities from these websites:

*Activity Mom- Learning with your Toddler
* Activities for Toddlers

*Sensory Play:

We will be using a lot of these activities when we learn the letters!
