Week One's focus is on the first 4 days of creation; separation of the light and dark, separation of the sea and sky, creation of the land and plants, and creation of the sun, moon, and stars. This week will be the beginning of establishing who God is for our kids.
Start your week by reading Genesis 1:1-19 aloud with your kids. Give them plenty of time to ask questions, discuss God's word, and absorb what you're reading. It's also a good idea to always begin any Bible readings talking about God's word. I always hold up the Bible and ask, "What is this?" The kids answer that it's a Bible. Then I ask, "And what's inside the Bible?" They answer, "God's words." Then I follow-up with, "And what is special about God's words?" The kids respond, "They're all true!"
