Kindergarten Activities

It is hard to believe, but we are already half way done with Alyssa & Elliana’s kindergarten year! They have had so much fun doing Heart of Dakota’sLittle Hearts for His Glory”!! Each week seems to get more & more fun & exciting as we continue on with this Christ-centered learning program… and I am SO thrilled!! :)

Here is just a “taste” of all the fun they have had throughout the last few weeks…

*Learned what it was like to be blind when we talked about how Jesus healed the blind man…

*Pretended to be Lazarus coming out of the tomb… :)Lazarus

*Painted trees like the one Zaccheus climbed in…tree Alyssa tree- Elli

*Enjoyed preparing our own “Last Supper”…Last supper The Last Supper

*Probably their FAVORITE was getting to put on lipstick & make “kisses” around giant lips filled with names of people they love (this was to show how usually a kiss is a symbol of love, but when Judas kissed Jesus it was a symbol of deception)…

*And they were absolutely AMAZED when they got to see raisins rising & falling when we added baking soda & vinegar to water (Just think how much MORE amazed the disciples were when they saw Jesus rise into the clouds!!)…science

Wow!! What fun-filled weeks! I love how the learning ties into our Bible lessons! We are very happy to say that half-way through the year, we are loving using “Little Hearts for His Glory” just as much as we have from the start… if not more! :)

How was your week??

    I love your daughters there individualism. I noticed that they do their crafts very differently Good for you to allow their personalities to come out that way. It is always a joy to see there smiling faces! Looks like you are having fun with LHFHG. It is the 2nd time around for me with ds 5. He is a few units behind your girls.
    We are loving it!!! ALL of it!!!
