Thanksgiving Lesson Plans



For the month of November and December we're taking a break from our normal lesson plans around here and focusing on the holidays!  This month we are practicing being thankful of course, and next month we will be focusing on Christ by celebrating Advent. Here's what we've been up to...

Morning time:
  • Interactive Calendar (Although I've revamped our calendar from how I originally created it.  It doesn't look nearly as nice now, but it's much easier to use!)
  • Devotions using His Mighty Warrior, which I'm really enjoying!)
  • Singing time (Trevor is learning Come Thou Fount and the Doxology to help reinforce that all of our blessings come from God!)
  • Reading The Thanksgiving Story. We're really enjoying this book.  It's a chapter book, so it is hard enough to challenge, but still simple enough to be enjoyed.

 
Sorry you can't actually see Trevor =) This video was taken very early morning when I enjoy a nice dark house.  If I get the chance to take a better one I'll switch it.


Thanksgiving Tree:

Fun and Games:
  (I can't remember what blog I found the Thanksgiving timeline game on...if you are reading this and it's yours, please let me know!)

And of course we are still visiting grandparents, going to the library, playing at the gymnastics center, going to our homeschool group, class at church etc.

What have you been up to?  I love getting new ideas and still need to think of a few things to do for the next week or so!

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Uh, oh. I didn't create that timeline...I assumed that it showed the original author....I'm going to have to go figure out where I found that at!

  6. We have Thanksgiving storybooks that we read each year, but we have need to pull them out tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder! I also love your Thanksgiving tree! I have wanted to do one of those, but maybe we will start with a wreath, like someone commented on your post. I'm stopping by from HHH. Happy Thanksgiving!
