On day 3 of "Back to School Week," we read "David Get's In Trouble." Then we used some cards that I made to help us decide whether actions were "good choices" or "sad choices." It was "Wisdom Wednesday" so this was a perfect time to discuss treating others with respect and making good choices.
After we read the book, Christian and I worked on a portrait of David.
It turned out so stinkin' cute!
Solomon told me that he wanted to paint at school so he worked on this little drawing.
Christian is looking forward to building at school!
Day 4 was also "Thoughtful Thursday" and the chance for us to meet the teachers! To begin our day we read. . .
After we read the book I pulled out "the box." I asked the boys what they thought was inside. I told them that it was things that they would need for school. I wrote their predictions all over the box. I would have taken a picture of that too, but I am embarrassed of my handwriting was looking terribly crazy!
The big reveal. . .
They love the bags, and we're all set to go!
As part of "Thoughtful Thursday" the boys wrote a short note to their teachers.
Christian danced all over the house like it was his birthday or Christmas!
But when we got there. . .someone was a tad bit nervous.
Nothing like a pep talk from "dear old dad."
Christian found his seat. . .
and the place for his backpack!
We went back to Solomon's class to see if he would warm up a bit, and he did [slowly but surely]!
He got a special gift from his teachers which was SO cute!
He was not letting go of that thing!
He tried to dump the goodies out!
Finally poked a hole through the froggies tummy!
