MFW-K Dinosaur Idea

We are on the Dinosaur Unit right now. During the summer, I found a "kit" at the craft store called I Dig Dinosaurs by Earth Lore. (it is ready-to-go right out of the box) It is a block of coarse, sand-type stuff with a dino "skull" inside it. There is also a hammer, chisel, and safety glasses. My D...

Book for this unit

We are a long way off from the Butterfly unit, but I found a cute book at the library. It is called All Afloat on Noah's Boat! by Tony Mitton. Basically, the animals are getting grumpy being on the boat so long. Noah organizes a talent show to entertain everyone. All the animals showed their special...

Christmas

We do a lot for CHRISTmas, as we don't do Santa. In addition to talking about Jesus' Birthday, we watch the Miss Patty Cake video that goes with the "What Does God Want for Christmas" nativity set. We also do a lot at church.

It was just posted on September 30. Even though I can't hear all of it, it seems really interesting. The video (and webs...

Moon Books

We finished the Moon unit on Wednesday. I don't think he is "getting" the "I am the light of the world" as being a reflection of Jesus. He keeps saying the moon reflects Jesus. I think it is too deep of a concept for him. I tried to explain it as "we should try to be like Jesus and show his love. So...

Our Sun Unit

We started our first unit last Monday (8/25). That was an overcast day, so we had a lesson in why the swimming pool was cold! From 7 a.m. on Tuesday til 7 a.m. on Thursday, we had 5.6 inches of rain from the remnants of Fay. My MFW-K kid was working on his cut-and-paste activity as the rain came dow...

He thinks I am making it too complicated and I think he has oversimplified it since it is K. Our pastor's wife is a K teacher in ps. She is helping me to understand the state st...
