Holy Cross

In looking at the possibilities for this week. I chose to run with the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - primarily the cross part. Our letter focus is C and H, though H is already easy for my kiddo. C is another story.

First we read about the Crucifixion of Jesus on the cross and what the cross was about. It lead to an interesting discussion. The children's bible we use talked about how Jesus could have come down off the cross, but love kept him there. That is a heavy concept, so we talked about it for a bit.

Then, we listened to the HWT "Magic C" song and played with Mat Man. We also glued cotton balls onto large cardstock C. The cotton was a hit and we played games with cotton balls and such.We even morphed Mat Man into Cotton Man which was great fun to keep away from her crawling brother. Sorry the pic is a little blurry (and I don't know why it is so huge...)

All great days (and new letters, I have decided) end with shaving cream. Funny, Ren likes to play with it, but doesn't really want to touch it. She informed me that she needed "tools" and came back with spoons and other kitchen utensils for working with the shaving cream (and the cottonballs in the shaving cream.) At least the table gets clean.
