Bible Song:  Awesome God -  YouTube   
Our God is an awesome God (point up, thumbs up, point up)

Poem:  Hands and Fingers (Author unknown)
Up and down
Round and round (draw circles in the air)
Put your fingers on the ground
Over (hold hands above lap)
Under (move hands below legs)
In between (you've hidden your hands in between your legs)
Now my fingers can't be seen!
Hands in front
Hands behind
Now my hands I cannot find
Here's my left hand
Here's my right
Hands and fingers back in sight (wriggle fingers)

Book of the Week: 
How Will We Get to the Beach?  How Will We Get to the Beach?

Suggested Activities:

• How Will We Get to the Beach? Book of the Week Ideas:
- Have your child figure out which item is missing. 

- Sensory Tub - Fill a plastic container partway full of sand.  Hide small items in the sand and allow the child to find the little items.  For higher sensory practice, blindfold your child and have him figure out what is hidden.

- Take a picnic to the "beach."  Give your child clues as to what you will need for your picnic.  Enjoy a fun afternoon at the park or in your back yard.  Collect items to create ABA patterns.

• The Wordless Book Preschool Bible Story Activities & Color Sheets:
- Read the Wordless Book Story 

- "Wordless Book" Song by Frances M. Johnston
(Use a Wordless Book or Gospel Fuzzies Glove to show the colors as you sing.)
(Black) My heart was dark with sin
until the Savior came in.
(Red) His precious blood I know
(White) Has washed it white as snow.
(Gold) And in His Word I'm told
I'll walk the streets of gold.
(Green) To grow in Christ each day
I read the Bible and pray.
(Listen - the last two lines are different in this YouTube video)

- "Gospel Fuzzies" (Author Unknown)
Learn the tune and then change the words to match the Wordless Book.  Here is my example. 
We're the Gospel Fuzzies (3x)
And we'll tell you the Good News.
Black means I'm a sinner (3x)
And I can't get in.
Red means Jesus died (3x)
And He rose again.
White means I'm forgiven (3x)
When I trust in Him.
Gold stands for Heaven (3x)
Where I want to go.
Green means I am growing (3x)
If I read and pray.

- "Gospel Fuzzies" Glove (Author Unknown)
Make a "Gospel Fuzzies" glove to match the Wordless Book.  Using a Stretch Glove, sew or glue a pompom to each finger representing the Wordless Book.  Wiggle the finger needed as you tell the story or sing the songs.  Or on a piece of paper trace around the child's hand and glue on the correct colored pompoms.  Point to the finger as you tell the story or sing the songs.
