Preschool with Bo Unit 7: Letter F & Moses

Preschool with BoWelcome to Little Hands to Heaven Unit 7. This week we are on Letter F and learn about Young Moses in Egypt. We also start learning about the 10 plagues in this unit – just in time for the Spring Holy days of Passover and Unleavened Bread! We cover the final plague and Exodus in Unit 8.

See our preschool curriculum and plans and a detailed Week 1 to see more details on what we are doing.

Bible and Math Activity

Building blocks symbolized the bricks the Israelites were forced to build for the Egyptians. It was also a good test of Bo’s patience.

Here he is telling me about his building and the various hiding places he built into it.

For those wondering what Mali and Elli are up to today – Elli is working on her writing, and Malachi is doing online math. This is not our regular preschool time today, but Bo wanted to do school, too!

Edible Moses Basket

This is not in the manual, but I’ve been trying to come up with an edible craft each unit. We made shredded wheat treats (like rice crispy treats, but with shredded wheat) to make a basket.

Bo is putting on some baby fat, or so it seems to me in those last two pics. He looks so sweet and chubby to me.♥

Bible Activity

The lesson was to make soap bubbles and then add food coloring to turn the Nile into “blood,” so I waited for a sunny day and made a big tub of bubbles. I let them play with the clean bubbles before adding the red food coloring.

Then, I let them put their hands in it, and the color turned their skin red, so I quickly had them stop playing in it, which only helped with the object of the lesson, I suppose!

  1. I love hearing how God has such perfect timing in aligning learning time with actual special events taking place in our lives. Bo always looks like he is having so much fun with this. How sweet that he is asking to do school.

  2. I’m glad he had such a fun week. I actually skipped turning the bubbles red because I was afraid that would happen and didn’t want to risk it, but I’m glad you were brave and your kiddos had the experience!

    • Abby, I put it off for several days… hoping for a sunny day to do it outside! I wish I would have let them play longer in the clean bubbles before I added the red, though.

  3. That pic of Bo and his doll is priceless!!!!

  4. we like the Moses basket :)

    • Thanks, Heather! You’d be so proud of me – I resisted the urge to help him so it would be all his. I think Bo has a bit of perfectionism in him – so perfect (haha) timing to learn to let go (and help him learn with me!). :)
