From Motherhood on a Dime:


Day 1: Squeeze a toilet paper roll into an oval shape.  Dip the end in blue paint and stamp on the Baby Moses worksheet.

Day 2: “Baby in the Basket” Craft:  Print the Baby Moses Craft page.  Color and cut out each piece.  Cut a piece of blue construction paper in half.  Glue on the reeds.  Glue the baby in the basket and glue in front of the reeds.

Day 3:   Jesus is Always with Me
Have the child choose five things in the room to bring to you.  Place the items in a small area on the floor and place a small blanket over the items.
Ask the child:
– Can the objects be seen?
– Are the objects still there even though they can’t be seen?
– How do you know that the objects are still there?
Remove the blanket.  Tell the child:  “This week’s memory verse says, ‘When I am afraid, I will trust in you.'”  Even though we can’t see Jesus, we know He is always with us.”With the objects gathered, turn this activity into a memory game.  Without the child watching, remove one object.  Have the child figure out which object is missing.  For greater difficulty, remove more than one object or add similar items.

Many children struggle to understand facial expressions and emotions.  Using the Teaching Emotions worksheets, work on understanding various emotions that children see, read about, and feel.  Various ideas are listed on the Teaching Emotions page.  Incorporate this activity with the Bible story discussing:
– How did Moses’ mom feel when she placed Moses in the basket?
– How did Moses’ sister feel while watching Moses in the basket?
– How did Moses’ family feel when he was found by Pharaoh’s daughter?

Letter D in Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow




    • From Preschool Palace curriculum: Introduce Letter D– Show your child the Letter D poster. Trace over the letter with your fingers. Ask your child to do the same. Trace the letter D in the air or use personal wipe-off boards. Make a letter D basket that includes several items that start with the letter D. Enunciate the D sound when identifying the items. Ask child to repeat or name the items in the basket.  Then ask child what other items could be put in the basket.
    • Day 1: Introduce the letters Dd using the tactile letters and decorate the Letter Poster to add to the Letter of the Week book.
      – Make sure your child does not add a vowel to the end of /d/ as in /duh/
    • Day 2: Use the Letter Posters as Play Dough Mats and role the play dough into ropes and lay on the Letter Poster to form each letter. This adds one more level of learning and is a great fine motor activity, which helps improve handwriting.
    • Day 3:   Write the letter “D” or “d” on 5 index cards.  Walk around the house and find items that start with the “d” sound.  Tape the cards to the item.  For a twist, tape the cards to items and have your child find the cards.- More Letter Dd ideas

To learn shapes, the child will be creating a “Shape Family” over the next few weeks.  Create the Oval Buddy this week by cutting a large oval out of construction paper.  Accordion-fold long, thin pieces of paper to form legs and arms.  Glue to the shape.  Add a face with an oval shape for the eyes and nose.  May also add shoes, hands, hair, or other accessories. (Thank you to Dina for helping to create this idea.)



Suggested books from Motherhood On A Dime:

Book of the Week: Miss Spider’s Tea Party

Create a Toilet Paper Roll Spider.  Staple the end of the toilet paper roll together.  Wrap the TP roll in black construction paper.  Cut four tiny triangles along the sides of the TP roll, directly across from the cuts on the opposite side for the spider’s legs.  Cut two black pipe cleaners in half.  Thread the pipe cleaners through the holes.  Add googly eyes.

– Discuss how Miss Spider showed kindness to the other insects.

– Talk about the fear the other insects had for Miss Spider.  They looked at her appearance and not at her heart.

– Have a tea party

Write the child’s name on a piece of paper and have her find matching tactile letters to place underneath each letter.  If the child is ready, add additional letters for the child to choose from.

Numbers:   4
Down and over and down some more.  That’s the way to make a four!

Day 1: Tactile numbers(also called sandpaper or textured)—because many 3 year olds do not have the fine motor skills for handwriting activities, trace the numbers with the child’s finger. As the child traces the tactile numbers, be sure to say the number rhymes included in the objectives to help the child learn the correct information

Day 2: This week fingerpaint to decorate the Number 4 Poster.  Add four stickers.

Day 3: Using the Five Little Ducks worksheet, order the 0-4 ducks.

Comprehension Questions: (use when planning story and at the end of the week use them to check for understanding of the Bible story)

What is the baby’s name?
What did Moses’ mommy put him in?
Who watched baby Moses?
Who found the baby?
God provided a way for Moses’ mommy to still take care of him.  Praise God!
