America Themed Morning Basket
As the summer approaches each year we shift into more relaxed homeschooling, because of this the majority of our “planned” learning happens during our morning basket time.
Because of that I have restructured how we will do our morning basket for the next few months.
We will focus daily on bible, logic, journal, read aloud, and movement and then Emily will get to choose at least “one more thing” from our basket of fun. So everyday we will get bible, logic, journal, read aloud, movement, and one more thing done. Our theme for the month of July is America.
July’s Morning Basket Choices
The main thing we will be using this month is the July Morning Menu that I made for us. It will cover so many topics in a fun, easy, and quick way.
For bible, we will be using the Jesus Calling Storybook. I love how gorgeous the illustrations are in this bible. It is absolutely beautiful and has wonderful stories as well.
For music, we will be using the Wee Sing America.
For logic, we will be using the Brain Quest America trivia decks.
For journal, we will still be using our Q&A a day for kids. This journal is the perfect family keepsake: A place for parents and children to share the evolution of thoughts, feelings, and dreams over the years, or a journal for kids who want to keep a time capsule of their own ideas about the world—whimsical or serious.
For read aloud, we will be reading through four of our Passport to Adventures books that relate to America History. Magic Tree House books: Civil War on a Sunday and Revolutionary War on Wednesday. We will also be reading through What is the Declaration of Independence and What is the Constitution.
For movement, we will be using the YouTube Playlist that is linked in the July Morning Menu.
For the extras I have Heritage Letters, historical documents, books, hands on activities, and games.
The books I have for her to read are: Red, White, and Blue Katie Woo, Ready to Read Wonders of America, Famous Folks of America, and Famous Events and Symbols of America.
The books I have for us to read together are: American Poetry, The Poetry of the US, The 4th of July Story, We the Kids, A More Perfect Union, A is for America, An American Alphabet, America is, Those Rebels John & Tom, Celebrate Independence Day, Wonders of the USA, The American Story, and States and Capitals.
The hands on activities I have are: States & Capitals Wrap Ups, Stack the States, and Creative Craft Boxes Fourth of July Kit.
The games I have are: USA Uno, Professor Noggin Civil War, Professor Noggin Revolution, USA Flag Frenzy, Scrambled States, USA Bingo, US Geography Bingo, Explore the 50 States, Game of the States, Race Across the USA, and Sequence States and Capitals.
