10 Commandments

I realize that some of these blog posts are mainly for me, so I can remember what we're doing throughout the week...so bare with me!


We are up to the 10 Commandments, so I thought I'd venture into the world of lapbooking. I had never heard of lapbooking until I ran across it on various homeschooling websites. I felt like I had been left out of an entire creative world. Okay, not really, since I'm NOT creative, but I thought this might be of some interest to William.

Since he's only three there's a bit (okay, okay, lots!) of prep work that I had to do ahead of time to make this activity go smoothly.
  • I took a file folder and cut it into the shape of the 10 Commandments' pillars of stone.
  • Found pictures of each commandment that represented their meaning and cut them out
  • Found 10 Commandments Song and printed it out (this was for me, so I could teach it to him). Seriously - does learning the 10 Commandments get any easier than this? I love this song!
  • Found a coloring page of Moses holding the 10 Commandments (forgot the link, sorry!)
There is SO much more that I could have done with him for this lesson, but...that will wait until he's older. For now I think he got the point!

Will you please quite teaching your son? Don't you know there are two boys across the street who are missing the outdoor playtime??? :-)

You inspire me! I think I'm going to just use your blog as my lesson plan for Johnny. :) OK, not really but it IS tempting...and it's definitely inspiring me to get back into the preschool stuff with Johnny. All he wants to do is play with cars/trucks/action figures...but I know if I make it interesting, he'd probably be up for a 15 minute lesson. Gotta start somewhere, right?
