"M" is 3 years, 2 months
"Boo" is 1 year, 9 months
Unit 5 in Little Hands to Heaven is mostly a review of the Letters A-D and covers the story of young Joseph from the time his father gave him a coat of many colors until the time he was in prison (Genesis 37-39).
Craft: Painting Joseph's Coat of Many Colors
I cut a paper towel to look like a coat, and the girls painted it using q-tips.
Number 5 Page: Joseph was sold to be a slave.
From a magazine, cut out 5 purses or wallets and glue to the Number 5 Page. "M" did all of the cutting and gluing by herself this week!
Math Activity: Coins
Joseph's brothers were jealous, so they sold him for money. Inside of a ball of moon dough I hid 5 each of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. "M" had to find the coins and sort them according to their kind. She then picked any five coins she wanted and used a crayon to make a rubbing of the coins.

Clay and Wikki Stix:
"M" said she wanted to make a bumblebee. I think she did a pretty good job!
I used Homeschool Creation's Number Playdough Mats
, only the girls covered the numbers with beads rather than playdough and they had to get the appropriate number of beads into the cup using strawberry pickers.
I ordered this through Achievement Products and it was by far the highlight of the week!
