A week of Christmas School in our house

We've wrapped up the first week of Christmas School. I've enjoyed digging a little deeper with the girls this year, while still enjoying our familiar Christmas lessons. We start each morning with our Advent prophecy verses and our Jesse Tree memory work. The boys showed me how to use our Chromecast, so I can show them our lessons and YouTube videos on the t.v. They split off for math and Bible study and then we gather together again for geography and crafty things.

This school year, I've tried to implement a lot more geography into our weeks and Christmas School has provided a great chance to work on it even more.

There are so many options for Christmas School that we never manage to hit everything. The one thing that is always constant is our Jesse Tree. 

This year, we somehow misplaced all of our Jesse Tree ornaments! Joel, the 15 year old, is working to create new ornaments out of clay. We've never done 3D ornaments before and they're a fun change.

We've studied Norway, England, Russia, Germany, and Latvia this week. There was coloring...

Symmetry lesson hijacked by an artistic 12 year old. And glitter.
 There was baking...

Pfefferneuse cookies from our Norway  lesson
 There was cutting and pasting...

Christmas cards from our England lesson.
 The Christmas cards are always a favorite. The rules are: Nothing but paper, scissors, and glue. The 15 year old cheated this year by writing the words "Police Box" on his, but it was too adorable to argue.

We're looking forward to next week's lessons
