"Everyone Has Fun in Music Class"

"Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth."  Psalm 66:1

"I'm so happy to see 'Little Mac',
I'm so happy to see Mommy,
I'm so happy to see my friends,
Everyone has fun in Music Class"

This is the song that we begin and end every music class with.  "Little Mac" loves it!  He is so excited to be back in music class. 

Music Class is a great opportunity for "Little Mac" and me to have some one-on-one time.  It's also wonderful to watch him learn more about music and grow in his abilities.
Thanks for Music Class, GiGi!

P is for Preschool

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;
I will counsel you with My eye upon you."  Psalm 32:8

Today was day 1 of "Little Mac's" at-home preschool.  We had a blast!  At three years old, "Little Mac" is more than ready to learn.  It is so exciting to watch him grow. 

Here is what we did for Day 1:
Prayer Time
Bible Story - Jesus goes to the Temple - "ABC" Song - "Listen to the A Sound" Song - Overview of the letter A - Uppercase & Lowercase A Game
Workbook - Writing Uppercase & Lowercase A
Workbook - Writing Readiness Exercise
Workbook - Red:  Coloring, Drawing & Writing "red"
Verse of the Week - John 3:16
Prayer Time

My goal is to focus on one letter, number, color, shape, animal, song & Bible verse each week. 
We will be doing preschool three days a week for 1 1/2 - 2 hours each day.
