MFW Kindergarten- Unit 3 "L" for Leaf

Can I just say I am loving all the themes with My Father's World kindergarten!  It makes each week so enjoyable and the kids are not bored at all.  It has really been a lot of fun!  

Unit 3 was all about leaves and the the letter "L".  We learned about love and how part of loving God is trusting God and obeying his commands.  We made our very own books about trees, enjoyed a "leaf" sensory bin, and learned what it means to be honest.

Here is our week in review...

Bible Memory: "Love each other as I have loved you." John 15:12 

Here are the boys with this weeks verse.


Bible memory prize for this week was punch balloons!


Songs for Unit 3:

Books we read:

The Best Fall Of All
By Laura Godwin

Wonders of the Seasons
By Keith Brandt

The Little House
By Virginia Lee Burton

This book was a lot of fun and covered the 4 seasons as well as the changing of the times.  
My boys really enjoyed this one.  Very cute!

A Tree Is Nice
By Marc Simont

This book was the favorite of the week.  We sat outside to read it and afterward the boys made their very own tree book.  See below:



I thought the boys would be thrilled with the fall leaf sensory bin, but they actually didn't know how to play in it.  They ended up bringing out some duplos and hot wheel cars to make it more interesting. Haha!


Leaves and gourds were bought at Dollar Tree, pine cones and mini pumpkins from Micheal's and they are scented.  The whole sensory bin smells wonderful!

"Okay, mom what is so fun about leaves and pine cones?"

"Now we're having fun!"

Badge Time!


For unit 3 a leaf hunt is suggested. However, during our first week of school my older children were learning about leaves in science so we did one then.  Here are the pictures from the leaf hunt.  They collected leaves from our yard as well as some of the neighbors.  At first we tried to iron them between wax paper but it didn't work so well.  We ended up laminating them instead.  For the older kids I had them label the different types of leaves.

Pulling leaves from the mulberry bush.

J Bug and Little E so proud of their leaf piles.

That's a whopper!

Pretty!


It is truly amazing how unique leaves are! There are so many different varieties.

Wordless Wednesday- Baby's First Haircut

Although my baby boy is already 2 years and 3 months old, he just now received his first haircut!  I almost couldn't bring myself to take him in.  I love his sweet baby fuzz!  However, his hair was so uneven and getting long in the back.  It was time.  Sniff, sniff.

Telling him what she was about to do.

Snip, Snip!

He did incredibly well.  So mellow!

Finishing touches


So handsome! He looks like a little man now. 

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

My Kids are SUPER!

Last spring I had the grand idea to take super hero pictures of my kids for my husband's Father's Day gift. Well, the procrastination bug got me and I never took them.  I had all the outfits bought and ready, but no drive to go out and take them.  I finally decided it was high time I get these pictures taken before the weather turns cold!  I recently bought a new lens for my camera (early birthday gift for myself) and have been dying to test it out.  There is still so much I want/need to learn about photography, but each time I go out I learn something new.  I had so much fun taking these pictures last night. The kids did great!  The lighting was a bit tricky but I think all in all I got a lot of good ones so I am happy!  


Getting the group pose in was so hard!  Not only is it hard to get 5 kids looking good at the same time, but also finding an angle that worked well.  This picture was taken with my new 50mm lens.


Love Baby N in this one!


I love the poses on this one but not everyone's best face. :-(


My oldest is 14 now!  Where has the time gone?


The sun was beautiful in this area.  I really liked how these turned out.


Mom made him do the Spiderman pose!  He hates me now!



Our little Wonder Woman!


She looks so grown up in these.


Miss "I" is now 12 years old by the way!



So adorable!


Eat your heart out, Clark Kent!


I love his little grin in this one!


My sweet boy!


The abs are for real!


Get Superman!!!


No one can defeat the power of Wonder Woman!


I am champion! Bwahahahahaha!!!


"You won't like me when I'm angry!"


He's been working out!



Little lady killer!


Don't mess with the Hulk!


Ah yes!  I picked the perfect child to be the Hulk.


Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!


Waiting for the Bat-mobile!


It's a bird, it's a plane, it's.....


Having to much fun!


Isn't he precious?  Such a darling face!


SO STRONG!!!



He really was running away here.  I had to run after him! 
I love how this one turned out.


Leaving a message for Robin


I love all his faces!  So darling!


CHEESE!
