We started with a group picture.
Next was a devotion. We talked about the letter writing done in the book and also how God writes letters to us. He wants us to know about Him and more importantly to know Him.
We also talked some about our memories and some of the children shared some stories of early memories that they had. We then moved to an extended art project. A number of the lessons in this book involve learning about the prairie and also the sea. We thought it would be fun to make journals to record what they had learned. They made an art piece for each side of the journal. One for the prairie and one for the sea.
They had a lesson colors - analogous colors were going to be used in today's sea project.
Our last activity of the day was a lesson on whales and seals. This was done game show style. The children first listened and learned facts about these animals - then they were quizzed.
I'm always delighted to see the various talents and interests that each of the children displays when it come to art. As always, it was a wonderful day. I thoroughly enjoy this group of families and am thankful to be sharing school time with them!
