I is for...inchworm, ice cream, ice, igloo, iron and itch
During this week's study Madelynn was INSISTENT that our little inchworm was a caterpillar. I was corrected every time I talked out our little inchworm and it would get her so upset. Joshua, on the other hand, was insistent that the I is for inchworm and C is for caterpillar and we were NOT on letter C. Can you imagine how much of our mornings went?? Lovely :) But we made it through the week and the kids had a blast learning all about the letter Ii.
Here are some of the activities that we did...
Letter tracing with colored gems (do-a-dot pages)
Counting practice (counting the number of holes in the leaves and matching it to the correct number printed on the inchworms)
Got all 10 of them complete!! So proud!
Letter sorting: sorting the capital I from the lowercase i
Letter Hunting (circling the capital and lowercase letter Ii's)
This week's scripture:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
"All things means all the things that God tells us to do in the Bible. The strength that Jesus gives us spiritual strength and the grace we need to obey God's Word"
-My ABC Bible Verses By Susan Hunt
This was the first scripture that we taught Joshua and it was the first one he memorized-at age 3. Whenever he said "I can't" we'd say "I can..." and he'd finish it. Now at 4 years old he helps his sister with this verse if she says she can't do something. It is so sweet to watch him help his sister learn God's Word and keep it close. Madelynn, at 2.5, isn't quite understanding on memorization but she's getting there. A verse a week is too much, but this one will hopefully be one of her first verses to memorize. :)
