Bible lessons for 2nd semester started with "The Life of Christ." Lesson 1, "The Annunciation."
As illustrated by Elon, age 5.
|How's that for a gender-neutral, "clothed in light" (which we did not discuss, BTW--or maybe it's just an open robe?), complete with "Dorito" wings and green eyes? Love Mary's bare feet, too.|
|Better when you see the full effect with the written portion of the lesson.|
Every day, my children do a page in an art journal. Sometimes we illustrate from our read-aloud. Sometimes they pick something from a how-to-draw book, or something from around the house, or a favorite illustration in a book. Today, they used Ed Emberley's "Make a World" drawing book (one of their favorites). Two went for a camel--adding in various details and background. One went for the "horse." You'll see.
|Camel, by Oli, age 4. Love the third hump.|
|Horse, by Elon, age 5. That's a sleeping bag rolled up on the back of the horse, BTW. I love the crossed legs in front showing the "walking action."|
|Camel, by Aram, 8. He copied the sleeping roll idea from the 5yo. Love the falling action of the coconut, and his idea of "blending and texture" on the camel's fur. We'll work on that.|
Hope you all have a blessed remainder of your school year. How can I not? I get blessed in this manner every single day!
