We finished our Introduction last week, and I wanted to pass along a few great resources we used and loved.

1. Go Fish Guys have a wonderful version of This Is My Father's World to listen to (to go along with the song for the first week). You can find the video for it on YouTube, and the song is on iTunes.

2. There is a finger play on ABC Jesus Loves Me ( that we've used for several years to go along with the Creation account. (It helps Mommy remember what happens on each day as well.) It goes:
On Day 1 (On numbers - put corresponding fingers in the air)
God created light (close fists and then quickly open in the air and bring down to side creating arches)
On Day 2
God created the sky (wave arms in the air) and water (make waves with hands)
On Day 3
God created land (with palms facing the floor, run hands flat in front of you) and plants (place one fist inside the other and pop the one fist through the other - sign language for plant)
On Day 4
God created the sun (hold arm up in the air with fingers spread wide), moon (with opposite arm make a "c" formation with your hand in the air), and stars (with index fingers putting up alternate right and left hand moving up in the air - sign language for stars)
On Day 5
God created the fish (swim hands with palms together) and birds (join thumbs and fly hands in the air)
On Day 6
God created animals (choose your favorite animal) and people (point with thumbs at self)
On Day 7
God rested (place hands together by face as sleeping)

3. A great book to go along with the introduction is Who Made the World? by Kathleen Long Bostrom.
