Kindergarten - Day 34

Day 34 - Friday

Here we go... another week and I'm already behind on blogging again!

 Prayers, pledges and Bible - Discussing the 10 Commandments. On this day we went over the Sabbath Day, and why it's so holy, and why it's so important for us to rest. We are big believers in resting on the Sabbath in this house, so she totally gets that. We do morning church and evening church on Sundays, and everything else is out of the question. No shopping, no working, no thinking. :-)  It is a day to focus on God, our family and/or friends, and our rest!

Missionary story: "The Tidal Wave" - a story from Japan. This was a great story of sacrifice. We really enjoyed it.

Poetry: "Mary's Lamb", "Humpty Dumpty", "Mayfly", "Mosquito", "Fireflies", "Look" and "Mosquitoes"


Language Arts: Talking about the calendar, sequencing, and reading a bit more:

On Friday, Brianna and Hunter both earned computer time. Their favorite website is  It is an awesome, free resource that I highly recommend. This is the jack-o-lantern that Hunter made and asked me to take a picture of. He said it was Brianna and you can tell by the pretty eyelashes!

Some of our favorite library books this week:

"Are You a Butterfly?" by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries (Looooove this one!)

"Bad Baby" by Ross MacDonald (Hunter's favorite book from our pile - we kept it an extra week!)

"Benny and Penny in Just Pretend" by Geoffrey Hayes (Brianna's favorite because she can read the whole book)

 The Black Book of Colors by Menena Cottin - a beautiful book about Braille

If You Give a Dog a Donut by Laura Numeroff

Yucky Worms by Vivian French - a favorite of my kids because it mentions the worms' poop a whole lot! Really, this is such a great, scientific book that is a lot of fun!

 Journey by Aaron Becker - one of the most beautiful stories we've seen - told by the illustrations.

A Leaf Can Be... by Laura Purdie Salas - another beautiful book about all the different ways leaves are designed and how they help out in nature

Stone Soup by Jon Muth - one of our favorite stories that we keep getting over and over again!

I have some videos to post but I guess that will have to wait until tomorrow! The bed is calling my name!
