G is for Garden: Day 1

**This post contains affiliate links**

Welcome to week 2 to our version of God's Little Explorers Preschool! This week is G is for Garden. This week focuses on creation! Each day we will talk about two days of creation. The curriculum has a great little song that breaks Genesis 1 down into days thats pretty catchy. Everyone had that song in their head all day!

Ripping up paper for the sky and the water. 
Beautiful creation book cover. 

Day 1 God created the night and the day

Day two he created the seas and above them a sky. 

After that we did the G do-a-dot page from Confessions of a Homeschooler

I drew some G's in pink highlighter and Cakes drew over them with her pencil. These then went into the alphabet notebook. I'm excited to have these things when she gets older and (hopefully) has beautiful handwriting!

Apparently it works better if you do it this way!

Then we decided to examine some normal run of the mill pinto beans from the pantry with our magnifying glass. Nothing too exciting there. 
We put them into a ziplock bag wrapped up in a wet paper towel to see what would happen. 

Summertime in Texas is usually pretty dreadful. Its so hot and humid that as soon as you walk outside, you feel like you need a shower! We remedy this by regular pool time!

This was done around 2pm. I love homeschooling!


Day 1 went well especially when followed with quality pool time!!
