So, here we are at the end of our Harvest Time Curriculum. We’ve enjoyed our Thanksgiving focus this week and have spent a lot of time talking about everything for which we are thankful. My children love the Pilgrim Children Books (Samuel Eaton and Sarah Morton). They are fascinated with the chores children their age were expected to complete. And of course my girls want to make the doll Sarah has on the last page. I am so thankful that I get to share the journey of learning together with my children.
I hope those of you who joined us have had a wonderful time reading the stories and completing some of the activities. As we prepare for the holidays around here, we will be taking a break from our more organized curriculum and focusing on Advent. Join us again January when we start up Winter Wonderland. For those of you who are planning ahead, I will have the Spring Bs (Birds, Buds, Butterflies and Bees) book list up this weekend (a preview of the book list is now available) and the full curriculum posted before we start the Winter Wonderland unit.
This week we are working on Week Eleven of our Harvest Time unit. I will be posting a weekly update to give everyone a space to chat about the program. If you would like more information about the program you can learn more and download the free homeschooling curriculum on our Harvest Time page. All of the directions for the art projects, recipes and activities are included in the curriculum guide. If your family is participating in the Harvest Time curriculum either for homeschooling or after school enrichment we would love to hear about it! Please leave a comment in this post in regards to your experiences with Harvest Time’s Week Eleven activities. You are welcome, and highly encouraged to leave links to your Harvest Time’s Week Eleven blog posts or pictures in the comment section of this post.
