ABC School

So, today's the start of our ABC school. I am teaching today, and it's nice -- I like to get it out of the way. I think we're considering moving it to 2 hours (today's only 1.5 hours)... what do you guys think? Did you do it, and how long did you do it for?
We only have 4 kids in our group right now, which makes me excited since I think you can do a lot of fun stuff with 4 kids (even 5 would be OK with me).
So, I'm doing the letter A. We're going to sing the Ants Go Marching One by One song, Reading a book about Autmn and making ants out of old egg cartons. We're also going to be using some Zoophonics that my friend Janelle gave me. I think whenever you can get kids to use their bodies to learn something it goes over way better.
So, go me, good luck to me. AND I'm feeding the missionaries tonight. Where did I hide my gold stars.... :)

  1. Ooooh, sounds like they're going to LOVE it! Ashton starts tomorrow and finally stopped crying each morning when Dallin left for school, wishing he could start. We only have 4 kids, too, and I'm so excited! We go for 1.5 hrs, but I think 2 is almost better...that way there's enough time for them to do some structured stuff AND have free/playtime, which is what these littles ones need to learn sociality etc.

    And the missionaries, too? Yes, make up a chart and FIND THOSE GOLD STARS!!!!!
