|Wiggle Worm. Oh my sweetness! After talking about Adam & Eve eating from the tree, we learned about the number 1 and cut out 1 tree to put on our number 1 page|
|Here, WiggleWorm and big brother WildMan cuddle and listen|
to the Singing Bible CD. Not a huge hit just yet, but he has the
attention span of a gnat.
|Let's just say this kid, like his brother right before him, LOVES his first Bible.|
This one is the younger child option planned in LHTH for 2/3yr olds.
AWESOME choice HOD! Perfect fit for this 3yo.
This is a past favorite with my previous LHTH PKers...and the current one! The tape letters! Each unit in LHTH has you put the letter on the floor with painters'/masking tape...large. Then the kids are to tiptoe, or trace with a finger, or walk the line, or drive a car (for the letter C!), walk a stuffed animal, etc., along the letter. Excellent pre-writing practice and awesome fun! After this activity, the letter A was well-imprinted on his brain because he started seeing it ev. er. y. where. He then yells out "A-A-Adam! My A mama, my A!!"
A-A-Adam is the clue for remembering the sound A makes. It is the first line or an adorable fingerplay that goes along with the Bible story for the week about creation.
LHTH plans one for each week to math the letter/sound and story!
We are really loving this time in LHTH. We've taken a while to go through Unit 1 with our move and him being quite young still. He has really soaked it up though! We finally started Unit 2 and will continue slowly through it as well. I know preschool isn't a must have, but when you've got three older siblings with school, and a not-so-creative mama, and you want to have school too, or mama wants to do some purposeful fun with you, Little Hands to Heaven is a wonderful fit! It is fun, gentle, quick and easy to implement with no formal type schooling, while still hitting those important early learning skills. Most importantly, it helps me teach my little ones about God, and how awesome Jesus is, and gives me a chance to have some one-on-one with him before starting with the big kids. It works wonders to start our day with him :)
We'll see you in the next update!
