Days of the Week

This week we focused on the days of the week. We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I created a lapbook from various things I found on the internet. On a side note, I love lapbooks. Not only are they educationally challenging for the kids, but they have the ability to revisit the information whenever they feel like it.

Religion we focused on the Trinity. A great go-along is 3 in 1 by Joanne Marxhausen. It discusses the Trinity and compares the Trinity to an apple. The three parts of an apple (peel, flesh, and core) are all still part of one apple. It was a concrete way of explaining that the trinity has three parts (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), yet is still only one God.
