Welcome back to Latticed Learning!  This year, we're continuing to learn while we play - repeating many of our favorites from last year while adding in all sorts of new activities as well.

This day's post is devoted to our weekly Bible stories - some weeks have more activities than others, but each lesson will help your little one grow closer to God!

Read the Bible


Pages 194-200 in this Bible 

Read a Little More

Even though I'm always on the hunt for more books about a particular subject, this week's lesson had me stumped.

Of course, the fact that my brain is full of all things Christmas might have something to do with it, too.

Let me know if you come up with any other great books for this week!

Sing Some Songs

We pretty much just stuck with this one that I came across.

When we weren't jingle-belling and fa-la-la-la-laing, that is.

Watch Some Videos

I found a couple of short videos for this week's lesson:

Play and Create

We didn't do as much as usual with this week.  That's pretty much because it landed during the week of Christmas and we just had so much going on that I decided to just spend that week and the week of New Year's just reading books and doing a few activities.

Here's what we did to learn about King Solomon:

First, we constructed crowns - out of both paper plates and pipe cleaners:

Gv chose the pipe cleaners and I put this together for a colorful crown

You'll have to use your imagination a bit for this one (or look carefully at the next photo) because as soon she took this thing off her head, she wanted to cut out some crown tips, too

She combined them into one crown before I finished putting the colorful one together

Then, we spent some time with her blocks, building the Temple:

Finally, I printed out the two Solomon stories found here and we chose several pictures to cut out and post as reminders of our story this week.
