I developed this Harvest Time curriculum when my oldest was in kindergarten and my middler in preschool (originally published Aug 2008 Nature’s Way Learning). It is the first term of a 3 term year schedule that focuses on the rhythm of the seasons with a special emphasis on holidays and nature. To complete the year you will also need to download (coming soon) Winter Wonderland (term two) and Bees, Butterflies and Buds (term three). This program was designed as a gentle way to introduce my children to the world around us. We read, baked, and crafted together. We did great big messy art and made a long lasting Harvest Quilt that is often fought over when we snuggle on the couch. It was a wonderful year that we all enjoyed thoroughly. I’m now dusting it off in preparation of using it again with my youngest and wanted to share it with our readers. I thought some of you might enjoy learning along with us this fall. I am also working on updating the other two terms and will have those curriculum guides posted later this summer.
