The Bible verse for this unit is “Forgive others, and God will forgive you.” – Luke 6:37. If you want to sing this with your child, it goes perfectly to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It.
books we read
We enjoy reading books together. One of things I like about this age is that Lyda Beth never tires of repeatedly hearing a good book. In fact, after we have read it a few times, she “reads it” to me. We enjoy the book list that came with our curriculum because the recommendations solidify the theme of each unit. Here are a few of the books that we have enjoyed during this unit.
- The Tale of the Tiger Slippers
- Little Louie the Baby Bloomer
- Little Lost Tiger
- An Ambush of Tigers
- It’s a Tiger
- Sleep Like a Tiger
- The Tiger Who Came to Tea
- Little Tiger
One big tiger went out to play on a spider’s web one day. She had such enormous fun that she roared for another big tiger to come.My Father’s World
If you’d like a fun way to introduce animals & colors to your child, feel free to use these adorable printables. I created them to correspond with My Father’s World Curriculum | All Aboard the Animal Train. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
the curriculum we use
Whenever I was choosing a homeschool curriculum, I leaned heavily on the guidance of my sister, Angie, at Fresh Wanderings. She had already been homeschooling her children for 13 years and had tried multiple curriculums and even supplemented her own throughout the years. She strongly advised that I use My Father’s World and I am so glad that I did.
“My Father’s World Christian homeschool curriculum combines the best of Charlotte Mason’s ideas, classical education, and unit studies with a biblical worldview and global focus. They have worked hard to make homeschooling as easy as possible with their God-centric curriculum mirroring the Greco-Roman classical approach of grammar, logic, and rhetoric.” You can read about their philosophy here.
