Today we finished up a couple of lessons we have been working on. Monday we started our first Character quality... CHEERFULNESS! We discussed ways to be cheerful even when we didn't want to, we memorized bible verses pertaining to Cheerfulness and we made mini-books for our lapbooks which the girls assembled today. Every week we will study another character quality and create a lapbook to reference back on.
We also finished up our Native American study. The girls are now making their very own Native American village! This is a project they were SO excited about starting. Last night I had some free time and money so I walked up and down the lovely aisles of Acmoore collecting items that could be used for our authentic village. Its a rainy cold day today so I have some candles lit, the fireplace on and hot chocolate on the stove. What a way to spend a friday.
While they painted and cut and drew I read aloud to them from the book we have been reading called..."A Journey to The New World." its a diary from a 12 year old girl aboard the Mayflower and her first-hand experience. We enjoy our read aloud time together and this book will smoothly transition us into the Pilgrims and American Colony life...(Our Next Unit Study)
I hope you enjoy the pictures and I will be sure to post pictures of their finished masterpieces soon!!!
P.s. Start working on your hands!!! The tree will be on the wall by this weekend=)))
