Song:

O the Lord is good to me, and so I thank the Lord

For giving me the things I need, the rain, the sun and the apple seeds.

The Lord is good to me.

Poem

When I was a little boy, I jumped up in a tree.

There I found an elephant just as big as you and me.

Along came a bumblebee

Bumble down, tumble down, out goes he!

Chant:

Jump high, jump low. Touch the sky and the earth below.

Jump out wide, jump in narrow. Hands to the ground. I’m a wheelbarrow.

+ Play the wheelbarrow game

Poem

Lots of animals come from eggs

Some with fins and some with legs

Some that chatter and some that cheep

Some that fly and some that creep

Some that slither and some that run

Some with feathers and some with none.

Animal eggs can be quite small

Or as big as a tennis ball.

Lots of animals come from eggs

And lay them too.

Language

Introduce the letter 'o'

through drawings, games and activities.

Story

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the Earth.

But the earth was without form and dark

And darkness was upon the face of the deep.

And the Spirit of God moved above the face of the waters.

And God said: Let there be light, and there was light.

And God saw the light was good.

And he divided the light from the dark.

And he called the light day, and the dark night.

And the evening and the morning were the first day
