What We Learned This Week:
*Story of the angels appearing to the shepherds
After our video and story we got started with our first activity. I grabbed a small dry erase board (but you could just use paper) and I would draw a number and have them count out that many clothespins. Once they grabbed the number of clothespins they got to clip them on the board. This activity was somewhat successful. They were able to get the correct number of clothespins, but they were so excited that it was hard to get them to pay attention. Jayleigh did finally get the hang of clipping the clothespins on the board.
After finger painting we talked about our Bible story one more time to end out this week’s Bible study. We talked about the angel appearing to Mary and then we practiced reciting our memory verse of the month.
THINGS I LEARNED THIS WEEK:
It’s a new week and a new week means it is time to learn a new letter and the sound it makes! So to get things rolling, we watched our Meet the Letters video.
We started the school day with the Meet the Letters DVD and read our Bible story. We talked about how God provides for us and how we should thank him.
Our next activity was learning how to take care of our things. The kids helped me with a few chores around the house. They were actually very helpful!
I feel like a schedule of watching the Preschool Prep DVDs would help make sure they watch them equally. I may start doing them in rotation instead of day by day picking which one to show. As far as learning goes, I realized this week how much kids absorb! I have been more actively trying to add counting into our everyday and it seems to be helping. They are able to count and I had no idea they had figured that out yet!
Have a great week y’all!

I am still learning as I go, but here are a few things that I have learned that might help you out!
5. Be flexible
We spent a lot of time playing with the color yellow today! To get us started, we watched the Meet the Colors video to get prepped. After the video we read our Bible story one last time and repeated our memory verse again.
Today we watched the Meet the Letters DVD. The kids have almost got all of the letters down, especially Jaxson! He loves to point out the letters he knows all of the time. These videos are really helping with our letter recognition!
