Memory Passage: Psalm 95
Bible Story: Creation with a focus on Animals. We can sing the song: “Animals, Animals, Jesus made the animals. Great big animals, little tiny animals – here is an animal that I know”
Toys: I have GREATLY reduced the number of toys Samuel has out. There were just too many. I still feel like he has too many, but I’m going to keep working to whittle them down. I will make sure he has his Animal Sounds Puzzle.
I am not one for electronic toys, but I found a really neat animal sounds app for my iphone that has photographs of the animal and the sound it makes. We might pull this out every once in a while too.
Monday – Ant hunt. We will look at ants with Samuel’s magnifying glass. We will also look at an ant book I made for Samuel.
I can’t share the images with you because I do not have copyright permission, but here is a PDF link to the words. You can do a quick google search to add your own pictures (or if your toddler is old enough, let him/her draw the pictures.) Print front and back, short edged binding and fold in half.
Tuesday - Artist’s Tub
Wednesday – Alphabet fishing. I would like to make a set like this, but if I don’t get around to it, the letters for the fridge phonics are magnetic (of course). We will put them in a container and have fun fishing for the letters. Or, if it’s hot and a nice day to go outside, we might try this version.
Thursday – Make the Alphabet out of clay using this recipe.
Friday - Apple Printing: more Apple activities
Sunday – Animal Safari go outside and see how many animals we can find. I’ll take pictures of as many as I can, and print them out so Samuel can look at them later.
Monday – Animal Hunt: Place stuffed animals all around the room and sing “Shall We Go for a Walk Today? Shall we go for a walk today and see what God has given?” and hunt for all the animals. Do it a second time, walking over pillows and “hills.” We can try running and crawling, jumping and hoping. (We can even do this outside.)
Tuesday – Play with Aurora (Samuel’s cousin)
Wednesday - Alphabet Hunt - using the letters we made out of clay
Thursday – Go to the Zoo to see animals
Friday – Make Animals out of clay. (We will use the same recipe from above. We have lots of animal cookie cutters and can use those.)
Sunday - Alphabet Stones
As you can see, I’ve added Sunday to the schedule. I don’t always plan to do an activity with Samuel on Sunday, but there are many times I wish I had something planned, so I’m planning something.
