History of Aviation Themed Morning Basket

Did you know that November is National Aviation History Month? Emily did and that is exactly why she picked the History of Aviation as the theme for our November morning basket.

Kevin was a C-5 Galaxy Crew Chief in the Air Force so things that fly have always been a slight obsession in our home. So, anything that allows the two of them to make and fly paper air planes and call it school is definately a major win!

The four main catergories of things that we include in our morning basket each month are read alouds, madlibs and/or trivia, hands-on activities, and games. The main reason we include these are because they are Emily’s favorite things and I find I like to start our day by connecting and filling her love tank.

Each morning (or whatever time we start our homeschool day) she enjoys the hands-on activities while I read aloud, then we do either a mad lib or some trivia, and we finish our morning basket time by playing a game together. What’s in this basket might look like a lot but chipping away at it every day for a month normally ensures we will get to enjoy it all.

Would like to see our morning basket in action and see how we have made it worked for us over the years? Then check out our Join Us For Morning Time series on our YouTube channel.
