This selections is a review from last year, though obviously we didn’t really learn it well. (We went to Disney World last year in the middle of December, so December 2012 is kind of a muddle.)
Bible: Luke 2: 1-40 KJV
We’ll read this as often as we have Circle Time, as we did last year. By the time my children are grown, I hope this is embedded in their memories. I think that’s the way I learned it, just by hearing it year after year after year. We will dispense with any review since this passage is long.
Hymn (Carol): “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” (The version I found on iTunes has only three of the verses. This is one of my frustrations with hymns–it’s hard to find versions with all or even most of the verses included. Any ideas?)
Sing other carols as the mood strikes us.
Open a book or three from our Christmas Book Basket. This is the most anticipated part of our morning. 🙂
We’re still reading Pagoo aloud, and the girls are writing a narration after every chapter. I expect that this will take us the rest of the month, at least. We’re almost through reading Nurse Matilda: The Collected Tales as our fun read, and after we finish it, I hope to read The Thirteen Days of Christmas by Jenny Overton. We started it last year, but I ultimately abandoned it because of how busy we were and because of our trip. It’s funny, so I’m going to start again and finish it this year!
