Backtracking: Along the Alphabet Path - A week

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!
