This week is all about Harold & The Purple Crayon. I struggled to integrate the Bible lesson this week, so I decided to do it separately.
We also focused a lot on color and imagination this week as part of our study.
This week is a "light" week. We spent some time reviewing what we learned about frogs and The Frog Prince last week. I was pleasantly surprised by how much he can recall.
We read the book and talked about it. Noah especially liked the part about the dragon in the book.
We watched a DVD version of the book that involved someone reading the book and watching as the art work came to life on screen.
Nana taught Noah a song about the color purple that sounds a bit like a cheer. It's very cute, but I don't know all the words.
Noah sings "P-U-R-P-L-E! Purple! Purple! Purple!" so that's all I know.
We played a seek and find game with various purple objects. The instructions I used were: "Find something purple." Noah wasn't very successful as we are just starting to learn about colors, but it was a great way to get the discussion started.
We painted with purple finger paint. Check out our art! (Image to the right.)
This week we are talking about the Tower of Babel. We will read the story in Noah's Bible picture book first. Then, we will watch a cute kids video read-along version from JC Play Zone. You can check it out here if you're interested.
We will focus on learning that God wants us to work together this week.
