Homeschool Preschool: Week 5

Homeschool Preschool 4-K
Week 5

We divide our homeschool curriculum into 4 basic parts: Bible, Letters and Numbers, Book of the Week and Other Skills. It is geared toward age 4, though many of the activities are good for children of all ages. I write this to give an overview of lessons and projects that we do to give you ideas to teach and do crafts with kids. We have a very casual preschool approach, but it is always fun to be creative and learn together!


Our Bible story this week comes from Genesis. We are learning about the story of Cain and Abel. This story is actually not found in The Beginner's Bible, which is our primary Bible reading source. However, you will see we found some creative ways to learn the story nonetheless. We are working on the character trait of peace which means being quiet at appropriate times and to be able to be still. From this story we learn how God will help us stay calm, even when we get upset. The story of Cain and Abel can be found in Genesis 4.

Bible Stories For Children -- The Old Testament: Cain and Abel
This video is one way we learned the story of Cain and Abel. Visually seeing the story come to life is a great way to get the message across.

This is a good story to teach the importance of giving with a happy heart. An activity we did to go along with this concept was to make a bank to keep change to give to others including the church.

This is a great story to discuss emotions. [Suggested Teaching]

Our Memory Verse:
Romans 12:21 -- "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
