Homeschool Kindergarten: Here We Come!

Homeschool Kindergarten: Here We Come!

Little Chipmunk is eager to begin school and even though she's still 4, I thought we'd give this homeschool thing a real go!  I figured even if I mess it up, she can still go to Kindergarten next year (though I think we'll be okay).  I recently read through the book, The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home, and the classical model of homeschooling really resonated with me.  For Kindergarten, our main goals are to learn how to read and do basic adding and subtracting.  I … [Read more...]

This Little Light of Mine: Music Videos

This last week during our midweek program, we talked about giving God glory by letting our light shine.  During the actual lesson, I asked kids about ways that we can love and obey God and for every answer they gave, I lit a candle or turned on a flashlight.  The lesson was a big hit and I hope the point sticks with the kids.  I also did some digging for some music and videos related to the theme and here's what I discovered.

Easter Songs We’re Singing!

Easter Songs We’re Singing!

Is your church planning a big Easter Egg Hunt this year? Last year, we did a station-based event and this year, we're planning on using an idea from Ministry to Children.    With this plan, kids will work together with their parents to complete a resurrection booklet and make their own set of resurrection eggs.  To finish off their experience, they will be visiting Miss Lindsey's Moving Picture and Song Station (that's me!) where they'll watch this cool Easter Video and sing some songs before … [Read more...]

Jesus Music Box: New Release from Yancy {Giveaway}

Are you ready for some tunes from Yancy?  I have to say, I'm a pretty new convert to Yancy's music -- but we've been loving what we've used so far.  This new album is described as "all about making Jesus loud in your life."
