It’s EASTER week!
I love this week… even though it’s raining outside, it’s definitely
spring inside! We’ve been doing some fun stuff so far…
We’ve been measuring things with Jelly Beans (a CD case is
9 jelly beans long), and playing guessing games that introduce
the concept of “probability,” sorting by color & making charts to show
which color has more beans.
There’s a little poem about jelly beans that tells the
story of JESUS. It’s also teaching how to use scissors,
using reading skills, writing practice and it’s just fun to color
the giant jelly beans & glue them.
And now… the cookies… lots & lots of cookies!
They’ll help share the love of Jesus to kids in
an Urban Arts Outreach & a Tutoring/ministry
in “the projects” and to our wonderful neighbors!
My kids are helping & learning that sharing and giving
is about giving something that’s personal; something that
requires work and/or sacrifice. (Although, the concept of
sacrifice may be diminished due to the fact that they’re
allowed to eat the broken cookies!)
Here’s some sites that have inspired this projects above:
