Praise with Song and Words (Part 2)

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.


I cut up some scrap paper for each girl and told them that they could glue 2 pieces together and scatter the rest around the room. While we let the glue dry, we went around the room and blew the loose pieces of papers. They all blew away just as they had predicted. When the glue dried I had the girls try to separate them but they could not. I explained, "God sticks to us like glue. He will never pull away from us."


Let's add some math to the biblical teaching today. For Daniella, I gave her pom poms and flipped over an index card that had a number from 1-10. She worked on number recognition as well as counting. For Sonia, I gave her 2 cards and had her add and subtract the pom poms to do some simple math problems.

I explained, "We can always count on God. No matter how many troubles or scary lions we have, he will always be there to help us."

This turned into a side art project as both girls decided to make snowmen out of the pom poms. Thanks for getting the creative process flowing!



I laid out all of the supplies, gave the directions and let them create. While they created, I explained, "God can change our fears into joys. He can make scary lions into tame kitty cats."

After we were all done, we held hands and I prayed over them I asked, "God to be with the girls just as he was with Daniel in the lion's den".

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.
