Suggested Activities:

•  Bible Story Activities:
- ABC Book: Cut out the baby and basket from the Basket worksheet.  Help the child glue (glue sticks work best for toddlers) the basket on a brown piece of construction paper and the baby in the basket.  Add the titles “B-Basket” and "Baby Moses in the Basket" on the construction paper and add the paper to the Alphabet Bible Craft (ABC) book.

- Give the child a basket to carry a stuffed animal or baby just like Moses was placed in a basket.

• Character Scriptures, Poems, Taking Care of Me, and Sign Language:  Because the suggested activities rarely change in these four objectives, they will only be listed in the "Objectives" and not in the "Suggested Activities" portion of the Lesson Plan unless additional information is needed.   Continue as suggested. 

• Color Activities:
Color TrainColor Train - Add a brown train to your Color Train by having the child color, with a jumbo crayon, the brown train.  Display the train at the child's level to point and discuss the colors.

• Shape Activities:
Water Paint Shapes  Using brown construction paper, cut out a large rectangle  Using minimal water, have the child water paint the rectangle. Talk about the shape as the child paints.

• Animal Activities:
- Using the Bear worksheet, point to the bear's mouth.
- Spread a thin layer of glue on the Bear worksheet.  Lay small brown construction paper squares on the bear.
- Point and count the bear's legs.
- Find pictures of bears in the books that you read.
- A bear says "roar" and "growl."

• Book of the Week Ideas:
- Each week you will be asked to find specific objects in books.  When you begin reading, ask the child to point to the image and then take her hand, point, and say the name of the object.  When the child is ready, allow her to find and point to the object unassisted.  This week point to all of the bears. 
- Point out all items that are brown.

• Fine Motor Skill:
Sorting Toy - As you play with the sorting toy, talk about the different colors and shapes.  To teach the child how the sorting toy works, hold the blocks above the correct slots and allow the child to push the block down.  Always allow the child as much opportunity to do the activity by themselves as possible. 

• Gross Motor Skill:
Crawl
- Place pillows, couch cushions, or anything soft on the floor for the child to crawl over. Have fun making mountains and climbing peaks!
