We seem to have had a big 'holiday' from our Alphabet Path studies. I really wasn't intentional, but just happened. However as I do think we try to cultivate an atmosphere of continued and real learning in our homes. I don't think it was a problem.
The transition back to more formal learning was a
We quite frankly didn't do a lot of reading and focused on more 'hands on learning', re: craft based activities and letter formation.
The girls really enjoyed the crafts especially the jewlery making and making the jungle for our jungle animals.
We did try to complete most of the fun activities from our J Week plans I had been really keen to do make juggling balls and do some juggling with them, but by this time I figured we had spent enough time on J.
I did read letter J from each of these books:
The Complete Book of the Flower FairiesWaldorf Alphabet Book
L M N O P and All the Letters A to Z
An Alphabet of Catholic Saints
The Angels' Alphabet (Lamb Time)
More Saints: Lives & Illuminations
We also spent a lot of time just saying words that begin with J and then tracing and writing J
So for a pictorial view of our time spent on J ....drum roll please.
