Polar Themed Morning Basket

Coming off of a long break is never easy in homeschool so for the month of January we will be easing back in with just our morning basket and the Book+Game Challenge. Our January Morning Basket will be polar region themed. I will have a few things we will do everyday but the rest will be free choice and we will work at our own speed. If we get it all done great, if we don’t that is okay too.

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.
