This year for Sunday school/primary, one of the songs the kids are learning to sing is called "When I Am Baptized". The song is as follows:
With this song in my heart I decided to make this the theme of today's learning.
I got a wonderful flip chart from sugardoodle. I used the one by Jolly Jen, but both of them work and both are filled with beautiful pictures to help your child learn the song.
We will sing along with this wonderful version I found on youtube:
We will read two books about rainbows:
We will hunt for letter Rr's *
We will sort upper and lower case Rr's*
We will line up the rainbows largest to smallest, smallest to largest and learn 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.*
We will learn how to spell the word rainbow*
We will color the number 24 Car from Nascar which is traditionally in a rainbow theme.
We will do-a-dot the letter R*
We will also graph rainbows*
We will also have centers set up so they can find how many different ways they can make rainbows using different materials.
- little vehicle counters
- bottle caps
- play food like ice cream and the felt fruits and veggies
- linking cubes
We will also have this lesson on preparing to be baptized. I don't do a lot of "theme" lesson days, but this one left an impression on me that we should do this lesson at this time.
*All of these activities can be found at confessions of a homeschooler
