Tot School Tuesday: LH2H Unit 6

"M" is 3 years, 3 months
"Boo" is 1 year, 9 months

The main themes throughout Little Hands to Heaven Unit 6 is the Letter "E", Number 6, and Joseph Becomes a Leader (Genesis 41-48). 

Number 6 Page:
God gave Joseph the knowledge to interpret the King's dream.  Cut out six pillows or blankets and glue to the Number 6 page.

Art Activity:
On brown construction paper the girls were to draw a picture of Joseph no larger than a sticky note.  They then were to paint the paper with thinned glue and sprinkle salt over the glue to make it look like desert sand.  When the glue dried they covered Joseph with a sticky note to represent how Joseph's brothers did not recognize him.

Active Exploration:
Pictures help us remember those we love.  We discussed special things about the people in these family photos.  Joseph had not seen his family for a long time.  He had to keep the memories of them in his mind until he saw them again.  I also turned this activity into an art activity by having the girls paint popsicle sticks to make picture frames for each of the photos.

Art Activity: 7 Fat Cows
Using cotton balls (soft and fluffy, like pillows we dream on), paint 7 cows in the tall green grass.

Wikki Stix Rings:
The king put Joseph in charge of the land of Egypt and gave him a ring to show Joseph was important.

"Boo" must think Mommy is very important because she just kept making my ring bigger and bigger!

Rings and Beads:
sort, stack, make patterns, use strawberry pickers...
