That’s My Whole Life Story (Midweek Curriculum Supplement)

That’s My Whole Life Story (Midweek Curriculum Supplement)

We're in week three of the "What's Up" Curriculum, and I have to say, adapting it for the younger set is proving to be a lot more difficult than I originally thought!  It's just such a dense curriculum -- and there is so much material that requires unpacking and serious thinking, that it's hard to ease it down for a preschoolers understanding. (In hindsight, I probably should not have picked a curriculum designed for 5th - 8th graders, but it fit our goals so well!) But we're going to … [Read more...]

Preschool Homeschool: God Made the Fish and Birds

Preschool Homeschool: God Made the Fish and Birds

God Made Everything This week, we're taking a look at at the creation of the world, and spending a day on each of the components of creation.  During the "Fish and Birds" day, we focused owls, since Fall is a classic time to take a closer look at owls.  That works for us! Chipmunk has been getting interested in owls ever since she started listening to Goodnight Blue – A Nighttime Musical Adventure.  In the CD, an owl comes out and talks to Steve about how she eats her breakfast at night.  Of … [Read more...]

SNIP AND TELL I found a book called Snip & Tell Bible Stories on my … [Read more...]
