Our preschool Sunday School class has been spending the last few weeks learning about God's power through the study of Moses! Here's a look at what we've been learning!
Moses Exploration Stations
The first 15 minutes of our 45 minute class on Sunday mornings is devoted to exploration stations that connect with our big idea. Our Moses unit is no different!
Our unit anchor chart doubles as a velcro dot puzzle during stations time!
The top shelf in our library station showcases books about Moses that are easy for our little readers to grab and curl up next to a pillow and read!
Match is always a winner with my preschoolers! :)
Week 1: Baby MosesHands down, our favorite part of this week was our Float the Nile game! It was great comprehension practice for our pre-readers and they loved getting to "float" their baby Moses! :)
Week 2: The Burning BushThis week, we learned that God is powerful enough to use a burning bush to speak to us!
I wasn't sure how my 3 and 4 year olds would do with the traditional tissue paper craft, but they did so great! Even my youngest boys were able to do this after I showed them one time! And they LOVED this and kept begging for more pieces to cover their flames!
Week 3 & 4: The PlaguesWe took two weeks to talk about the Plagues of Egypt...even though my SS curriculum guide says just one week. It's just so much to pack into one week! The first week, we talked about all of the plagues, but focused in on the frogs!
I totally thought I had frog stickers too and was in a panic when I realized I didn't. So, at the last minute, I hole punched green construction paper for pretend frogs. YA'LL... all the giggles! It was like they had real frogs all over the table or something! Sometimes our plan B's are just as good or better, right? :)
The second Plague week, we focused the stubbornness of Pharoah and the lengths God's power went to save his people...God will never give up on us! We matched the pictures to the words. I did precut the circles for them, just to make it faster. And we worked on finding the first letter of the words to help us match the pictures!
Week 5: The Red SeaWe had so much fun with our red sea craft! While I got everything set up, they colored Moses. Then, I added glue stick glue to the "path" part of the picture and the kids each pinched sand on top. We poured the extra back in the sand container and had our dry land!
Then, we used puffy paint (equal parts shaving cream and elmer's glue and blue food coloring) to paint the red sea walls on either side of our dry land!
Check out the sea wall on this one!!
Week 6: The 10 CommandmentsOur last week of studying Moses, we learned about how God used his power to speak to the Israelites and to write on stone tablets with his finger!
They each chose 2 commandments to trace the words, cut, crinkle up and glue!
All of these crafts and many more activities can be found in my Moses Unit!
