Praise with Song and Words (Part 1)

I made the goal for this month to complete each week in the Experience God kit in one day. This option is one of two options given in the Teacher Guide.

60 Minute Weekly Routine:
Story Activity and Bible Verse Song for 5 minutes
Discuss and Do the First Two Activities for 15 minutes
Snack Time
Discuss and do the Second Two Activities for 15 minutes
Art Project for 10 minutes
Prayer and Bible Verse Song for 5 minutes

I broke this up in two posting - before snack and after snack.

This worked out really well for us and if you go in the order that Mother Goose Time has set up its the perfect mix up and timing of sitting, movement, sitting and listening, sitting and crafting. Perfect, as usual.

The scripture this month is from Deuteronomy 3:18. The Lord goes before you and will be with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you.


We discussed the scariest things the girls have ever seen. The answers I received were quite comical. I had already started telling them we were learning about lions so they both said that they had dreams that lions were coming to get them. So imaginative...sort of! However, this was a great segue to the story cards because I said, well lets see what happened to Daniel when he really was next to lions.

We are also working with predictions with Sonia for Kindergarten so she predicted that the lions were going to eat Daniel.

Sonia was relieved that her prediction was wrong.

After I read the story cards, we all took turns roaring loudly like a scary lion.

I explained that "Daniel trusted God and knew that God would always keep him safe".

After they had sat and listened for a bit it was time to get up and run. I got into it too! We had a lion chase. We played a game of tag and when they were tagged they kneeled down and prayed just like Daniel.

I explained that "Daniel was put into a cave with some lions. The lions were hungry but didn't Daniel because he prayed to God".

Back to the table, to work on phonetics and letter recognition.

I wrote A,E,I, O, U on index cards and held them up. We watched a YouTube video on long vowel sounds. Daniella practiced recognizing the letters while Sonia worked on knowing what the long vowel sounds make. To make it even more fun, we said the sounds in screams as if we just saw a lion.

I explained, "God heard the noises that the lions were making. He also heard Daniel praying and asking for help. God hears everything."

We also use the preschool curriculum in our home school, if you want to read more about those lessons, read archived blogs or check back for future posts.
"Like" us on the Chicken Nugget Mom Facebook page to see what we are up to each day.
And for the Moms and Dads, I have begun a Christian based blog, Perfectly Imperfect Life Warriors, and I will be kicking off some great Bible studies to inspire and empower us as we walk with Christ together. Next on the agenda is Proverbs 31:2016 - 31 verses in 31 days! Check it out!

** Mother Goose Time allows me to follow two of my biggest passions. Educating my children and writing! I am honored to work with Mother Goose Time. I do receive the curriculum in exchange for my blog posts but every word in here is honest and a true example of this curriculum in a multi age home practice.
