Bible Song: I’m in the Lord’s Army (Traditional)
I may never march in the infantry (march)
Ride in the cavalry (pretend you're riding a horse)
Shoot the artillery (clap hands together and move one hand into the air like a missile)
I may never fly o'er the enemy (fly like a bird)
But I'm in the Lord's army (point to self and then up to God)

I'm in the Lord's army, yes, sir! (salute)
I'm in the Lord's army, yes, sir!

I may never march in the infantry
Ride in the cavalry
Shoot the artillery
I may never fly o'er the enemy
But I'm in the Lord's army, yes, sir!

Poem: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (Traditional)

How I wonder what you are!  (shrug shoulders)

Suggested Activities:

• Bible:

- ABCJLM Coloring Sheet - Joseph's Colorful Coat

-   Joseph's Coat:
Print the Coat printable.  Cut stripes of construction paper for the child to glue onto the printable.  Or, using watered-down glue, glue down squares of different colored tissue paper. (Image and idea from Genita) 

- Joseph Coat Sm Grocery Bag Colorful Coat:
Turn a large, paper grocery bag into a vest.  Cut a slit up one wide side to make the coat's opening.  Cut a hole in the bottom of the bag for the head.  On the two narrow sides, cut arm holes.  Decorate using many colors. (Image from Debra)

• Letters:
- Introduce the letters Cc using the tactile letters and decorate the Letter Poster to add to the Letter of the Week book.

- Make sure that you say the /k/ sound without adding a vowel – as in /kuh/

- Crayon Rubbing  Using tactile letters Aa, Bb, & Cc and numbers 1-3 place a piece of paper over the cards and have your child color to make Crayon Rubbings.  The child will have the surprise of a letter or number when he is finished. (This works best if you use tactile letters are made out of sandpaper and will not work if they are made out of yarn.)  Add the art to the Letter of the Week  and Number books.

- More Letter Cc ideas...

• Numbers:
- cupcake Make cupcakes with three candles focusing on the /k/ sound of the words "cupcakes" and "candles"

- Five Little Ducks Using the Five Little Ducks worksheet, order the 0-3 ducks.

• Name:
Using tactile uppercase letters, lay out the child's name.  Write each letter on a notecard and have the child match the notecard letter with the tactile letter. 

• Book of the Week:
