As a mother of 5 young children, I was tired of Christmas being full of chaos. Here in a flurry and then quickly gone. All my plans and hopes and "This year we'll..." were left unfinished and I sat down after the hum of activity with a feeling of disappointment. I wanted to connect with my family, to focus on truth and spreading God's love and joy and peace to others, not just focus on ourselves. I wanted Christmas to be meaningful and special and nostalgic and leave my children with traditions and closer relationships that they would look forward to year after year. Out of this desire from the heart of a mom, our Christmas unit was born.
The First Christmas mini unit is designed to be used for the whole family, homeschoolers or non-homeschoolers, as a way to connect as a family and appreciate the true meaning of Christmas. It is designed to be done 4 days a week for the three weeks leading up to Christmas OR do it the 12 days before Christmas as an advent activity (plus don't miss our Advent add-on).
It comes with a beautiful list of picture books (one idea is to get them at the library, or click on the links to view on Amazon and wrap them each day to open and read together), 3 delicious baking recipes (one entirely new one), movie discussion questions, songs with music, words AND chords, and more! Each week you will be working on a gift to Jesus, doing random acts of kindness, making crafts, writing cards, and spending time together as a family making memories and remembering what Christmas is truly all about.
What's Included? You can purchase a leveled bundle with one student notebook of your choice and the Teacher's Guide, or the full family bundle that includes all levels with the Teacher's Guide. If you have more than one child you are buying for, it is more economical to get the full bundle to re-use in the future with your kids at older levels. All digital bundles come as an instant download in PDF format for you to print at home
How long are units designed to last? Each unit is designed to be 4-5 weeks. Our main units and most of our mini units include 20 lessons and can be done as a 4-day school week (lasting 5 weeks) or a 5-day school week (lasting 4 weeks) to offer flexibility. You're in control! Set a schedule that works best for your family and your pace will dictate how quickly you complete any given unit.
