- Memory: Review Proverbs 22:13
- Bible: Read Proverbs 2:1-15 together. Why does the father say it is important for the son to listen? What benefits does the son gain from listening?
- Listen and Learn: Talk to your children they can learn exciting things by listening. Pick a craft activity from activitytv.com. We’re going to do the Tic Tac Toe Board. Begin watching the clip with the sound off. When your children protest, tell them to learn without listening. Let them watch for a minute or two, then turn the sound back on. Was it easier to learn when the sound was off or on? Listening is important! It helps us learn much more than we could by just observation alone. If there is a subject your child has been curious about, get some books from the library on that subject and read aloud. This is the age to give them a love of learning!A personal note on this lesson – I learned that failing to prepare the materials BEFORE we start the craft kind of, um, dooms it to failure. My girls are too little to sew, so instead I’d planned on using the glue gun. I didn’t realize it was a misplaced glue gun, gone MIA. We started watching the craft video, then when we got to the sewing part, I left to go find the glue gun. And looked. And looked. And looked. Long story short, we never finished our tic tac toe board and it sort of the took the steam out of the lesson. Oh well. At least my girls enjoyed watching the video!
