Little Hearts For His Glory, Unit 17

(This was in late January/early February, I believe.  We’re almost finished with Unit 19 now.)

This year, we are using
Heart of Dakota’s Little Hearts For His Glory curriculum.
It is adaptable for children ages 5 – 7.  To read more about our choice,

Alex is learning right now that history is HIS story – the story of God’s world!

practicing his Bible verse

We read about Pentecost, and then we made paper flames. 
We also discussed who has eternal spirits (cat, dog, tree, man, toy, woman…which ones?).

We are working through All About Reading Level 2.

(Please keep in mind that I have the older version of LHFHG, and if you purchase a new guide, your math will follow a different sequence than what we are doing.  I created my own spreadsheet to match the math activities in the older version of LHFHG to the lessons in Singapore Essentials.  It’s not perfect, but it will work for us!)

We changed up the plan just a little bit to make it a little more fun.  This was hard work for Alex!  Mommy cut out the pieces; Alex did the gluing.  We made flower stems and flower centers.  Each flower center has a number; Alex had to glue on the correct number of petals.  This was a challenge for him – not because he can’t count, but because it took fine motor skills and counting at the same time.




Oh, goodness, was this ever fun!  We read about Jesus rising up into the sky when he returned to Heaven.  Then, for science, we watched raisins rising.  We learned about how the vinegar and baking soda work together to cause air bubbles that make the raisins rise.

We are using Happy Handwriting and Rod & Staff ABC series.


I can’t find any pictures this week. Smile

We’re reading Grandfather Frog now.  It was a little harder to get interested in this story in the first few chapters, but we’re loving it now as we progress through the story.

Max wanted to do school along with Alex one day, so he listened to the Bible lesson and did this art project with us.  We’d read about how Thomas doubted, so Jesus had to show Thomas his hands.  Then we painted ONE hand, pressed it on the paper, and folded it over to make a second handprint.  We dotted the middle (Alex dotted it three times for some reason…) to show the nail holes.





I’ve said it before, but both Alex and I enjoy these daily math & literacy pages!  It provides handwriting practice, number writing practice, and introduces/reinforces kindergarten math concepts.  I’m so grateful we came across these pages!
