Week 11 - Solomon is Discerning

Printables for this week:

Discerning Chart from Hubbard’s Cupboard
Proverbs 2:6 from Hubbard’s Cupboard

Since one student was a little sensitive to the baby in this week's bible story, we did more of an overall focus on wisdom and the proverbs.  We took advantage of some teachable moments, and unkind words to reiterate Proverbs 15:1 with an impromptu craft page.  It turned out really good, and provided a visual for using soft, gentle words throughout the week.

Our zoo friend this week was Jerry Jellyfish, and I had no clue there were so many fun jellyfish ideas!  We had an all out cooking day with a main course and dessert jellyfish.  The children cut turkey dogs up into big chunks, then poked half-length spaghetti noodles in one end of each hot dog.  It was great fine motor practice, and I was amazed at how diligent and independently they worked!

Next we dropped them in boiling water for a few minutes, and Voila!  Jiggly Jellyfish!

I remembered we had a few mini-jello molds, and surprised them with dessert as well.  We just put the blue jello in the middle of the plate, and let them add whipped cream tentacles.

 For our Friday version of Jungle School, we made a cool jellyfish craft.  First they colored a coffee filter with markers, and used a squirt bottle to make the colors run together.  While the filter dries, attach a few strips of tissue paper to a plastic cup for the tentacles.  Then poke a hole through the middle of the filter and bottom of the cup, and thread some string through to make your jellyfish!  (We didn't do this, but I would recommend gluing the filter to the cup to keep the shape a little better.)
