We take a slight turn in our schooling during the holiday season, particularly with Advent. Every year I have lofty plans to be so far ahead with our plans that all of December can be a full break—and every year we’re not ready yet. It’s the same again this year.
But this doesn’t mean we can’t relax a bit, and savor a slower sweetness of Advent. We pour the bulk of our efforts on to reading, writing, and math, and let the cards with history, art, science, languages, and the like fall where they may—as our interests lead, and how they intersect with the holidays.
We’re doing Truth In The Tinsel this year, which is primarily for our younger two (ages 3 and almost 6). It’s short and simple—just what I need—but I wanted to add a bit more something for our oldest (who’s almost 9). So I created this.
These are twenty-two verses that correspond with the Scripture readings in Truth In The Tinsel—in cursive, for her to copy. Some are long, some are short, and days 14 through 16 are smooshed together for one verse (hence the twenty-two).
Will we get to all of these? I don’t know. It’s doubtful, seeing as we’ll probably shelve penmanship in the days leading up to Christmas. But I still wanted these in my back pocket.
This has no official connection with Truth In The Tinsel—they’re basic Bible verses, after all. But I do recommend it! You can easily start it even after December 1—just jump in and go wherever you are. Don’t strive for perfection. Head here for more info.
