Noah's Ark

Who doesn't love the story of Noah?
You know the cute part with all the sweet animals 
floating along happily on the boat?

Do you think it was really like that?
Can you imagine?
The true sounds and smells of so many animals
all together in one place?

I don't know so much about the cute and sweet part,
but I do know that Noah was obedient to God
even when God asked him to do something strange
that would mean something awful for so many.

When teaching the story of Noah in class,
I certainly use the cute and sweet images,
but it's important to get students to the reality of what
was truly going on.

If you are ready to teach Noah, 
your timing is just right for my updated learning packet
(and a FREEBIE).
It's a HUGE packet with over 90 pages and 16 activites
including reading, language arts, math, science, etc.

One of the activities is a memory verse puzzle
The verse is Genesis 6:22.
It's a fun way to help your students learn the verse.
Here's a sneek peek at the whole packet.
And now the FREEBIE....
It's a making words activity that practices "ar" words.
Click on the preview below to get your copy.
I hope you find something helpful here
as you get ready to teach the story of Noah to your kids.

Ready to Enlist?

I might be telling my age....
but when I was a kid I LOVED the song,
I'm in The Lord's Army!

Did you learn that song?
Do your littles know it?
It's an oldie, but it's still good.
(Click the pic to listen - YouTube link.)

Several years ago I wanted to do something with the song,
& God took it & turned it into a whole military-themed unit.

since Memorial Day is coming up,
I thought you might like a craft/bulletin board activity.

It's part of my Lord's Army packet,
but you can get the pattern FREE right here.
(Click on any of the pictures to grab a pattern.)

I use the paper pattern to make a sturdy pattern on 
card stock so that it's easier to trace multiple copies
without the pattern going to shreds.
(A crafty parent told me to use empty cereal boxes.)

I also label the pattern pieces with the part name
and the suggested color.
(One year we found camo wrapping paper
and those were very cool.)
That helps students when they are tracing their own pieces.
Cut them out...
I never cut out pieces for my students unless
they are very tiny pieces.
My goal is not a perfect product that looks exactly like mine.
With them cutting, it usually means that
their final products have a LOT of character :) 
They could be assembled and glued onto 
construction paper (and then add a background)
or they could just assemble the character.
Finish up with whatever details they choose
(faces, scraps for camo, boot laces, etc.)

These make a great bulletin board.

If you're interested,
here is a preview of the entire unit.
Don't forget the click any of the pictures above
to grab your FREE craft pattern.
