A is for St. Anne and Apples
We started along the Alphabet Path about mid-week last week. I wanted to start fresh with the New Year so we used what we had around the house.
Here are the books we used:
Anderson's Fairy Tales
The Angels God's Messengers and Our Helpers
American Tall Tales - Mary Pope Osbourne
The Kingfisher Young People's Atlas of the World
Children's Atlas of the Universe
Usborne Introduction to Art
We did a small study of apples, but really focused on the read alouds and letter formation.
We didn't do a fun snack for the A theme, but overall the week was a good start. The two oldest girls have been busy painting the little saint dolls suggested by Jessica at Shower of Roses. I wasn't too excited about making a wee felt saint as suggested by Elizabeth so I decided to give the painting project to the girls. I'll post pics later of our Painted Saints. The girls are still working on the details.:)
Next up will be the highlights from B week....stay tuned!
