Jesus Time: The Tabernacle
We see that God directed Moses to build a place of worship and that God wants us to worship with Him regularly. Psalm 122:1 I rejoiced (was happy) with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”

The Day of Atonement
We see how God taught the people of Israel about the day of Atonement, a day where He showed them that only He can forgive sins and make us At One with Him. I John 1:7 “The blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.”

Math
Trace a number on your child’s back. Have them write that number on paper or in play doh/paint/ other. Count by 2’s. When you count, what number follows 3? 5? 1? 8? When reading the stories below, replace a name with your child’s name. It makes it more meaningful to them. Terry brought 2 Star Wars characters to Mark’s house. Mark had 5. How many characters did they have together? Five birds were sitting on a branch. One flew away. How many were left?
