Fire Unit and Lapbook Day 2

For day two of our Safety Unit via Fire/firefighters we did a few more activities in the lapbook and binder of free activities from Homeschool Creations Printables then tried a new cute craft from Tippytoe Crafts.

  • White, red and brown or peach construction paper
  • Finger paint
  • Hole puncher
  • markers
  • Glitter glue
  • Glue stick
*Tip: Teacher make the craft first to give your kids an example to go by, as you can see from the above picture my hand barely fit on the paper.

1. Begin by getting the hand print of each of your students first so the paint has time to dry then punch out your circles for the firemen faces.

2. Then glue your circles to the tips of the fingers.
3. Cut out and add the firemen hats to the heads. Then add the face to the firemen.
4. Use a marker to draw a line between the firefighters then add the blue glitter glue to show a big splash of water!


My Little Sweet Pea

Show off this cute and creative craft in your family classroom. And on a side note I'm very proud that my little sweet pea had enough focus to actually finish this one with us. That's a giant leap in the right direction!

Happy Homeschooling,

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
