We live in Florida which means our winters are nothing like the magical white snowy landscapes that are showcased in many books. But we are not going to let that stop us. This month our morning basket is winter themed and we will enjoy romanticizing the beautiful winters we don’t get to experience.
I don’t know about you mamas but sometimes I just need things to be easy and this month was one of those times. I love morning basket and was not willing to give it up or miss out. But college started back for my husband and I and we had holiday hangover and I just need things to be done for me.
Thank God for Pam Barnhill and her ready made Morning Time Plans. So, this month a big portion of our morning basket will be coming to you from the Winter Morning Time Plans. The winter morning time plans include prayer, memorization, poetry, music appreciation, picture study, nature study, art tutorials, math, and reading suggestions.
January’s Winter Themed Morning Basket Choices…
For bible, we will be using the prayers for the morning time plans as well as The Jesus Storybook Bible because Emily said she missed the bible stories.
For logic, we are using Spot It! Frozen this is such a great brain training game that helps with critical thinking skills while still be so fun to play.
For journal, we will still be using our Q&A a day for kids. This is going to be such an amazing keepsake to look back on and I am so glad we have kept up with it for almost a year now.
Our read aloud books this month will be Winter Snow Fun for Emily to read aloud to me, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and Polar Bears Past Bedtime from our Passport to Adventures curriculum. I also have a stack of picture books that we will be picking 2 or 3 a day to read (I will share them on my YouTube channel so be sure you are subscribed).
For the geography & history we will be reading through the folk tales for January in A Year Full of Stories.
For the math we will be playing a lot of Sleeping Snowmen.
I also have the Rooted Childhood Winter Guide that we will be pulling poetry, songs, finger play, and handicrafts out of for our morning basket time as well.
