Travel back in time with us to Ancient Greece with our greek mythology themed morning basket. Full of tons of amazing greek themed resources perfect for your homeschool morning time!
We are planning to spend the fall homeschool semester doing a Percy Jackson-themed unit study that will be full of greek mythology. We are so excited about the topic that we decided to extend the fun to our morning time too. What could be a more perfect way to kick off our homeschool year than spending our time bringing history to life?
What’s A Morning Basket?
Simply put a morning basket is a collection of things that allows you begin your day with beauty, goodness, and truth as a family and is normally placed in a basket. It is a time to bring everyone together to connect before transitioning to the more individualized subjects. Most people fill their basket with books, quiet activities for their kids to do while reading and maybe a quick game. Morning basket can look different for each family, no two are the same.
What Do You Put in A Morning Basket?
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.
Where Does A Morning Basket Fit Into Your Homeschool Day?
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 or so normally ensures we will get to enjoy it all.
