We are still holding on to the little bits of Christmas until Epiphany. The tree is up, the lights are lit, tea and candles and treats in the afternoons. We started slowly back to school today. But because we were traveling during Advent, we didn’t finish our Jesse Tree. So for the rest of the week, we will still be working on the Jesse Tree instead of our American history.
We will also start our January memory work next week. Thought that maybe you might be needing new memory work too. So, I’ll post mine here. No grand plan, no overarching theme. I print out a copy for everyone–even the pre-readers! We all sing the hymn. Then I say a line of the memory work, then we all say it together.
The clipart as always is by Gertrud Mueller Nelson. I needed to hear that fourth verse from Psalm 91. “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust.” Plus I love that fox–he reminds me of Melissa Wiley’s Fox and Crow Are Not Friends! As for the hymn selection, I’ve got a boy who is all about Beethoven’s 9th symphony right now. I thought a little joy would make our morning just a little easier to embrace. We use the accompaniment from Traditional Hymns because it sounds like the organ at our church. And the King James because it sounds like Shakespeare!
