Yesterday we continued our study of the Days of Creation. We are on Day 1 - God made light. I had made a number 1 that we covered in tin foil to represent light. We hung it on the wall. By the time we are done, we will have 7 numbers up there showing what was made on each day. We made another memory verse craft today. I had 2 circles - a black circle and a white circle. Evan folded each of them in half and then cut them across. He matched up one black half and one white half to make a circle. He glued them onto a blue piece of construction paper. We recited the verse together, Genesis 1:3, and he said it by himself.

The memory verse craft was great because we have also started to learn about circles. Evan already knows all of his shapes, but the curriculum we are using, Answers for Preschoolers, spends time on each shape individually. Evan traced a big circle on a worksheet and I gave him a bunch of little circle stickers to put all over it. I gave him 3 of each color (since we are also working on the Number 3) and we counted each of them as he put them on. When he was done, I wrote his name for him on his paper. As mentioned in an older post, I am trying to teach him to write the first letter of his name, so I have been writing it with dashes and he traces it. I was pretty impressed with his 'E'. He didn't want to trace mine this time, he wanted to make his own, and I thought he did a great job!
