"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
II Corinthians 4:18

Back to Bikes

For our first meeting on bikes we talked about bike safety, what to wear, hand signals & why it is important to use hand signals.We talked about rules of the road, and safety/traffic signs, what they mean, how to obey them, and what the colors mean. We went over the parts of a bike. We used this worksheet. I just found this worksheet which I like better. I gave the girls several handouts for their notebooks.

Then they had a quiz on the safety rules and road signs, and I'd call them up one by one asking them to point out a certain part on the bike. I can't find the quiz I used for safety rules, but there are a lot of them online. The quiz for the road signs was on the back of the poster.

Our next meeting my husband will teach the girls how to change a flat tire, how to put the chain back on, where to lube the bike, and other stuff like that.

We started our unit on Bicycle unit.

We read and did our lapbook elements about George Muller. George Muller was a great man of simple childlike faith. He prayed about everything expecting God to answer with exactly what he needed. George Muller has been my personal favorite missionary during this study.

You and Your Girl with Vicki Courtney

We all made tie-dye shirts to wear tomorrow. That was fun, we all enjoyed it and will probably make tie-dye again as a Faithgirls project.

I hope to update this blog soon!
