As a family, we are reading "Tabitha's Travels" by Arnold Ytreeide, but since all three of the books are so great, we are reading "Jotham's Journey" and "Bartholomew's Passage" during school time. Seriously, if you haven't purchased these advent books, you SHOULD! They are SO good!
We are also participating in "Truth in the Tinsel: An Advent Experience for Little Hands." It is a great little e-book available for only $2.99. Each day, you are given a passage of scripture and a simple ornament to create related to the scripture. Totally worth it!
Also, I think I have failed to mention that we've added in the next level with our Dolch sight word cards. We have mastered all of the pre-primer words and are working on primer words now. Essentially, I'm just doing this to make reading a bit easier for Ephraim, so that he can immediately see and recognize these words without having to sound them out.
Annnnnd..... I know cloud week seemed sort of out of the blue, but Ephraim's been asking a lot of cloud-related questions, so I wanted to take advantage of the moment. :)
So, here is this week's lesson plan. Like I said, it will stay much the same all month. Enjoy!
