My December Plan

Here's the December Plan...

A Jesse Tree! This involves daily scripture and you can google Jesse tree to see what I am talking about or click here for one example. I will post our own pictures which will involved nothing fancy...but here is one I found online. I can't tell you how much simpler you can make it... all we did was put up a vertical trunk and horizontal branches with butcher paper and I found some printed color 'ornaments.' The key is to tie in the scripture. And with the simplicity of ours, you can focus on the 'process' vs. the 'product.' I will upload a new picture of ours in a few days.

I am going to continue to work on MathUSee. Most of the upcoming lessons are review but we never did subtraction so need to do plenty of practice there.

We have a boatload of library books that are not really Christmas related but would like to read them so every day I'm just going to grab one and read. Today we read How to Make an Apple Pie and see the USA. And of course we mapped it.

I am going to 'try' and do a Christmas Lapbook but I am not sure on that one. We have done three already this year and I'm a bit lapbooked out. I will upload our Thanksgiving lapbook. Maybe next year I will be able to post some pictures BEFORE the actual holiday so folks can get an idea of what I'm talking about.

I am planning many outings including:
