This week we left Africa and traveled to Asia, specifically Saudi Arabia. We discussed how most of the people living in the Middle East are Muslims and talked about Islam. When I was telling the kids how some of the Muslim women have to dress completely covered except for their eyes, The Boy said "oh, so they're ninjas," and then started laughing. Silly boy!
While looking through the Saudi Arabia books during book basket time, Ballerina was surprised to discover that the cars there aren't much different than cars in America. I'm not sure what exactly she was expecting.
They also copied some interesting facts about Saudi Arabia into their notebooks.
In kindergarten this week, Little Red learned Rr - Rocks. We sang "The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock" and talked about how we need to make Jesus our rock. We ended the week reading Stone Soup and discussed how God would have wanted the villagers to share their food from the beginning.
