Starting Friday, we're going to read The Handel's Messiah Family Advent Reader. I must find the CD, though I have some suppositions as to where it may be.
We're going to continue working on Luke 2:1-20. We're going to work on our same carols (one each week): O Come, O Come Emmanuel; Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus; Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence; Silent Night through Christmas Eve and Joy to the World after. We may do While by Their Sheep and We Three Kings for the weeks leading up to Epiphany.
The children have been playing Christmas songs from Pure and Simple Christmas and Christmas Medleys from Students for a couple of months. They'll continue working on them.
The children decided that they'd like to memorize 'That Holy Thing' by George MacDonald during the session.
We're going to use "My First Advent Copybook" for R-girl and "My Lessons and Carols Copybook" for the other children. ETA: N-boy is going to work on the same copybook as R-girl, M-girl is going to do the other one.
We're going to attempt to do one project a
Maybe we'll read from Rembrandt: The Christmas Story. We'll read lots of Christmas books from our collection. I hope to make M-girl do math 3 days per week. N-boy has 5 or so lessons to finish over break, too.
We have fun activities scheduled: Baking Day with grandparents; Family Progressive Dinner; First Friday; CF Breakfast with Santa; 1920s Christmas activities at a local park; Downtown Columbus Adventure; Ice Skating; a Progressive Choir concert between 3 churches; Ohio Village's A Dickens of a Christmas; and more! Should be exciting ...
I hope that we'll be baking and crafting and watching Christmas videos and enjoying being together.
