January means Snow, February means Love

Well, January went by fast which I am okay with. We have replaced the snowflakes, and started decorating for Valentine’s Day. We will be learning about Love this month, and what the Bible has to say about Love. Will also celebrate Presidents Day and learn about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Here is a glance at what we will be doing the first week of February

Week 1
Cover in our family worship time- Love for God, What does the Bible say?
Deuteronomy 6:1-25, 10:12, 11:1, Joshua 22:5, Psalm 31:23, Matthew 22:37, 2 Thessalonians 3:5, and Jude 1:21. These are some of the verses we will look at over the week.

Do fun activities on Groundhog Day
Matching Groundhog's
Read about the Groundhog
Make a book for early readers 
Make a book for fluent readers
Draw and write pages, here, and here (1st-6th grade) at least in my home, my older girls love to draw and write.
Easy animal report
Finish and send out our Valentines. We make homemade Valentines for our family, and the girls make them for each other. This year I bought a little stamp set-Melissa & Doug Butterfly & Heart Stamp Set. I can't wait till they open it.  I will post our Valentine plans later this week.

We will go over the Letter E as we continue down the Alphabet. I'll post more on the later.
