This week I just let me kids play. On Monday they played with playdough from 9:00 am until 4:00 PM. Seriously. They got it back on on Tuesday and on Wednesday they just played all day. Instead of focusing on class this week, I've been working on the beginning plans for December. When I set up our school schedule this past summer, I plan to leave December "open" so that I could plan some fun things to do and I plan on sticking to that schedule.
2. Advent Study - I'm still up in the air between two studies. Last year we started Truth in the Tinsel.
I haven't read through it yet but it sounds pretty simple which is always good ;-)
3. Weekly Studies - I still want to incorporate some learning so I've scrounged Pinterest and my own personal documents that I've been saving as I find them and am pulling otu some Christmas related studies. I think we are going to start with a unit on the Polar Express and, of course, end the week with watching the Movie. My kids are NOT big movie watchers so it will take work to get them to watch it :-)
4. Countdown!! - Last year we did our Grinch Countdown for the first time and I really enjoyed it.
That's the plan and I'm working on gathering supplies, little gifts, craft supplies and more over the next week and a half.
