Time Traveling from the 1800’s to the Middle Ages

Let me start by saying that Sarah, Plain and Tall was one of the sweetest books I have ever read. It took an extreme amount of self control for all of us, not to read the whole book in one sitting. Instead, we used a little bit of patience and read a chapter a day along with the study guide from Moving Beyond the Page. This is a unit that truly should not be missed! We loved it so much!

Here are some of my favorite highlights from the last two weeks.

Butter making became a family activity! Everyone participated. Then we used the butter we made with dinner.
Dealing with the disappointment of having to wait another day to know what will happen next in the story. It was tough for me, too.
Making paper wildflowers – some were even made into hair clips.

The excitement of losing 3 teeth in one week!
States and Capitals Match Game is something we will be using over and over again.
Working on connecting sentences with her favorite erasable pen.
Designing a log cabin.

Tell them I sing was all it said.”

Sarah, Plain and Tall
Chapter 2, pg. 15
Even Mr. Teenager took a break from his studies to join in when we were reading Sarah, Plain and Tall.
Write a song as if you’re a character in the book.

Now that we’ve successfully finished the units on The Land and Sarah, Plain and Tall, it’s time for us to set off on our next adventure…

We are rewinding the hands of time, way, way, way back to the Middle Ages because today we started Moving Beyond the Page’s units on The Whipping Boy and The Government and the People.

We are 3 chapters into our new book and I, for one, can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen next!

Until next time,

-Mama K
