The theme of this week's Learning Basket is Butterflies and Bugs.
We're moving right along with Katherine's lesson plans for the Mother of God. We light our candle that is decorated with the symbols of the Mother of God each evening and discuss the day's symbol of the Mother of God by it's light. We are also using the three part cards Katherine created as matching cards. We've received our copy of The Story of Mary the Mother of God and will be enjoying that this week as well!
We're using a well loved Christmas gift from Sugar Plum's godmother to pretend to be butterflies... it is so much fun to fly around and be chased by the Mama butterfly!
We'll play memory with a little springtime memory game set we found a few years ago at a Hallmark store.
We'll read, read, read this week! There are plenty of butterfly and bug books out there and we plan on getting a few more at the library this week.
I recently bought a bunch of Scholastic dvds at Marshalls. This one also has Waiting for Wings by Lois Elhert. I cannot wait to see that one!
We finally rehung our butterflies over the table! Sugar Plum saw them and said, "Wow!"
We're really looking forward to the things that we hope to do this week!
