We had a Wonderful week last week during W week! We talked about wind, water, wood, watermelon, weather, watches, walking, wonder, who, whose, woodchuck (Nana's book), wolves, days of the week and more. We did read "Wacky Wednesday" on Wednesday of course! My girls love that book!
Bethany was sick for two days this week, so we didn't get everything done as we planned. I didn't take too many photos, since she was sick...
She made a cute mini-windsock and hung it on my water bottle. Silly girl, it's not very windy there!
We got the pattern for it from Family Fun magazine.
We made a weather book (found online by Scholastic) and she did a weather match page. We had a lot of wind the week before, and it reminded me of this part of "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day:"
"Happy WIndsday, Owl," said Pooh... Owl says..."I wouldn't go so far as to call it Windsday. Just a mild zephyr." : - D
Next week is X & Y week... with lots of yellow! (but not yawning!)
He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
