First Day of School
Today was our first day of Kindergarten! We took a few pictures outside before we started. We're using My Father's World curriculum this year, I think it's going to be great! The first lesson today was about the first day of creation. We learned that God created the light and the darkness, He called the light "day" and the darkness "night". We will be making a creation banner and also a creation book, with pages for each day of creation.
This is the banner, there are numbers to color, cut out, and glue on to our green banners.
This is the first page of our book. They are both making a book. They are gluing a black piece of paper to one side of the white one to make light and dark. For a snack, we had duplex cookies, one vanilla and one chocolate.
We are learning the hymn "My Father's World". I found this beautiful rendition sung by Fernando Ortega, we will be watching this every day as we learn the song.
To celebrate the beginning of the school year, we invited a friend out for ice cream after lunch! Yum!
Even Rebekah got some, Italian ice is dairy free. (She's mad at me in the picture because she doesn't want me to sit at the table with our friends...)
