We wrapped up our last week of school before the baby comes. We will be taking the entire month of September off to deliver and enjoy our new sibling! Then we'll jump back in at our own pace until we've figured out our new routine.
This week we started with the letter C and started learning about Abraham and Sarah's blessing from God--the gift of a new baby! (How appropriate when we are expecting our own new addition!)
Lydia learned how to spell her name and though she doesn't have it memorized to recite, she can recognize it by sight now.
After learning about how Abraham packed up all his belongings and moved because God told him to do it, we used that lesson to focus on the number three--gluing three suitcases to the third page in our number book.
Lydia really enjoys cuddling up with her children's bible or devotional and reading with me. I think it's one of her favorite times during her lessons.
We added another tactile letter to our ABC wall. We used cotton balls this week to make our letter C.
On Tape Day, we drove cars around our giant letter C, making the letter sound as we cruised around.
For our art activity, Lydia got to make her own tent like the one that Abraham and Sarah lived in using an index card and tape.
She painted "stars" on using white paint to represent how God had promised Abraham as many descendants as there were stars in the sky.
Then she put on her own "robe" and spent some time playing that she lived in a tent as well. Of course, she needed a wand as well.
We also worked on learning how to serve others after reading about the three men who visited Abraham to tell him how God was going to give him a son. Lydia picked three of her stuffed animals to have a picnic with and she gave each a plate, spoon, and cup and then divvied out snacks for each of them.
We didn't finish the complete unit this week because of doctor's appointments that I had since I am past my due date, but we plan to just pick up where we left off after baby's arrival and our break!
