Raising Rock Stars: Creation
We had a special session of Raising Rock Stars with Daddy this week! We normally attend church on Saturday evenings, but this last Saturday it didnt even reach 10 degrees outside. Just a bit too cold to venture out for any reason, so we decided to have a session of 'home church.'
Our verse this week is "...God Created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1
Daddy read the creation story out of The Beginner's Bible-one of my favorite for children. Daddy wasnt exactly thrilled about being in this picture. But he did it for the blog :)
On her blog, 1+1+1=1 (creater of Raising Rockstars), Carisa suggested a number of different resources including this mini book. I decided to turn it into pieces for our flannel graph. As we read about each day, I would add another piece to the graph. We did discover one flaw in the mini book. Day 6 shows a graphic of Adam and Eve, but Eve wasnt created until after Day 7. I didnt even notice that she was there until Mustang pointed out that her Bible book showed a picture of just Adam.
When we were done reading the Bible story, I took down the flannel graph pieces and had Mustang put them back up in order.
Then, I had Charger match numbers from his puzzle with the numbers on the flannel graph.
We were going to sing the song 'My God so Big" but we forgot-oops! We love that song and sang it later instead.
After we were done reading and working on numbers, Mustang and Charger headed to the kitchen to play with Playdough and create things themselves.
