Preschool Creation Day 3

Today is the third day of preschool and we seem to be falling into a good routine.

9:00 am Calendar Time followed by Math

  • So today after all our Calendar songs we pulled out our zero sandpaper card.  First we said together, "Round and round and round we go.  That's the way you make zero. Then each girl did it on their own while running their finger around the zero.  The girls colored their zero posters and put no stickers on it.
9:30 am playtime
10:00 am Story Time (book of the week)
  •  The book of the week is 5 Little ducks.  So we sang 5 Little ducks and the girls made the ducks move on the flannel board. We sang it normal one time then the next time I would have a different number of ducks return each time.  So rather then go in order of 5..4..3..2...1 I surprised them each time.  They really had to pay attention to know how many ducks to put back Next we did 5 Little Ducks with the finger puppets.  Again we sang it normal the first time then the second time I surprised the girls with how many ducks came back, I also let the girls be the Mama Duck.  This time rather then say the number I held up a different number of fingers and the girl that was Mama Duck had to say how many ducks came back (they counted how many fingers I held up).  Finally we did our Duck art project.
10:30 am playtime
11:00 am Bible Story Time
  • We are learning the Creation Story and this week we concentrated on Days 1,2, and 3.  First we sang our Bible Verse.
Tune: "Are You Sleeping"
In the beginning. (2x)
God created (2x)
The heavens and earth (2x)
Genesis 1:1 (2x)

  • Then we read the Bible Story.  We said together, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth"  Then I read, "On the first day God created:"  and the girls filled in the blank.  They know day one and day two.  I read, "On the third day God said, 'Let there be grass and plants and trees." We talked about the grass, plants and trees.  What do they look like?  How tall do they get?  Next we did our art project for Day 3.
11:30 playtime
12:00 lunch
