Today we woke up and went and grabbed donuts for breakfast! Afterwards, we talked about the shape of a diamond. I had my son practice tracing diamonds and then finding them in a hunt of many shapes.

Next, we read the story Dinosaur Roar by Paul and Henrietta Strickland. I bought a bunch of dinosaurs from the Target dollar aisle and we played with them, talked about their names, and then lined them up for largest to smallest. We made a dinosaur craft with the capital D to put in our alphabet book.
For snack we made "dirt" with chocolate pudding and crushed oreos. Click here for recipe: http://recipes.kaboose.com/dirt-cups.html Then, we did an "I Spy" hunt with the letter Dd.

We discussed what a doctor is and why they are important. My son dressed up like a doctor and we made a "doctor bag". I pretended I was sick and had to "visit" him. He made me all better! :)
We did the Bible Lesson, "Daniel in the Lion's Den". We watched the cartoon on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83A03DlUI5g We talked about how when we are scared we can say a prayer for protection. This has really helped with being afraid of the dark at bedtime.
