Fire Safety

What a fun time we had learning about fire safety. Their were two favorite songs this year. They were 911 and Fire Truck. Both songs help teach them when to call a Fireman. We had a visit from the Firemen and watched them put on fire safety equipment that protect them when going into a fire. We had a fun doing many different interactive fire themed art.  The children were able to play games that taught them how to Stop, Drop, and Roll. Mrs. Posey’s class shared their fireman tent and fireman gear with us. What a blast we had dressing up and pretending to drive a fire truck. Mrs. Leonard invited us to join the K4 class to make a special fireman treat.

The most important lesson learned this wasn’t about fire safety, but who we can always count on when in need. (God)  The bible lesson about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego was used to represent trust and faith in God. The fire theme seemed appropriate. 🙂 The bible teaches us that we are to only have one God before us. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were asked to bow down to a gold statue they refused. They told the King that they only bowed down to God. When the King threatened to throw them in the fire they did not change their mind. Instead, they told the King that if it was God’s will he would protect them. Despite the King mocking them they did not change their mind. They were thrown in to the fire. Their trust and faith in God was rewarded with a guardian angel. They did not catch fire, smell of smoke, or have any evidence of have been in a fire. The King saw that their was a fourth person in the fire. (an angel) He called for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to come out of the fire. The King then ordered everyone to “worship the God” of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They were used to show the mighty power of God. Also, their faith and trust in God was rewarded for others to fall witness. It can changes hearts just like it did the King.  Allow others to see that your trust and faith in God does not falter.

It is never to early for little ones to learn. Their innocence and their growing love for the Lord may bring some hard hearts to their knees. 🙂

Apples, Apples, Apples, Oh My

Our theme this week focused on apples. I have had such a hard time determining which pictures and activities I would like to focus on in this blog. I want to focus on everything! If I did that this blog would be too long and you would lose interest in following along. Each child’s expression and joy of adventure deserves a standing ovation. I would like to highlight a few activities. However, to get the full visual connection to our learning you will be redirected to our class Facebook page to view this weeks album.

In our bible learning we made a biblical reference to creation and God’s love for us. We learned a song called, “Way Up High In An Apple Tree.” Through that song I was able to use that tune to get them to connect by singing, “way up high in the apple tree God created fruit for me.” Ask your child what day God created the trees and fruit. Here are a few highlights of us making God’s apple tree. Few Facebook for more pictures.

We had some fun in language focusing on the letters in our name. Ten Apples Up on Top was our inspiration story. Learning our first name seems to be easier than learning and recognizing their last name. Here are a few highlights. Remember to view our Facebook page for more.

Everyday we had fun combining science, math, and fine motor together to create new recipes. Here are a some enjoyable highlights.              Don’t forget to few our class Facebook page to enjoy our full visual connection.
