Go to the Ant

“Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways and be wise.

Without having any chief, officer, or ruler,

she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.

How long will you lie there, O sluggard?

When will you arise from sleep?

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber and want like an armed man.” Prov 6:6-11

I’m not sure if you checked out the study on ants that I put on my First Day of Summer post, but I liked it so much, that I’m posting it again!  It was a link for a great lesson from Heart of Wisdom.  I printed one of these charts, laminated it (with my other BFF- the Scotch laminator!), and put it right up in the kitchen for all of us to see!  I’ve been calling the kids “my little ants!”  Don’t we all want to raise hard workers? 🙂

Studying ants went perfectly with our other summer lesson on mosquitos!  The twins were learning about ants this week along with the letter Aa in their A Beka preschool work (see curriculum page using button on the right).
