Themes make me happy, like REALLY happy! I love a good theme and I love tying everything into a good theme. I also love holidays and celebrations. So give me the opportunity to tie a theme and a holiday together and chances are I will go over board. This months theme is Thanksgiving.
November’s Thanksgiving Themed Morning Basket Choices:
For bible, we will be using the Indescribable devotional it is one our absolute favorites. It combines bible verses, scientific facts, and prayers is such a beautiful way that is easy for children to understand.
For logic, we are using Find it Fast Thanksgiving (this is included in my Thanksgiving Games Printable Pack), 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.
For memory work, we will be substituting things we are thankful for using a thankful tree kit that I found at the Target dollar spot, you can find a similar on here.
For the geography & history loop we will be reading through National Geographic Celebrate Thanksgiving which is a beautiful description of how Thanksgiving is celebrated all over the world, and reading the folk tales in A Year Full of Stories.
For the art & music loop we will be doing Thanksgiving Chalk Paintings from Chalk Pastel, which is a video art course that we LOVE!
For the math loop we will be using some Thanksgiving Math Task Cards that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers. Since the are fraction task cards I will also be throwing in our fraction bars for reference.
For the science & nature loop we will be using Exploring Nature with Children. This is a year long curriculum that dives deeper into a topic each week it also includes a book list, poetry, music, and artwork as well. While this is not Thanksgiving themed the topics for November are still very fitting.
I also have the Rooted Childhood Autumn Guide that we will be pulling handicrafts out of for our morning basket time as well and because we LOVE games I am adding in my Thanksgiving Game Printable Pack too.
