Morning Time ~ Autumn 2012

Here are my plans for Morning Time, which we will begin tomorrow. (oops, that should be next Tuesday!) 
We do MT on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings.
When the weather cools, I want to include a Morning Walk!
  • Prayer 
  • Hymns:
    • All Things Bright and Beautiful
    • This Is My Father's World
    •  For the Beauty of the Earth
  • 10yo daughter reads from Rod & Staff Bible Reader: Job, Psalms, and Proverbs
  • Scripture Memory: 
    • Genesis 1
    • Psalm 19
    • Books of the Old Testament
  • The Ten Commandments in Verse by Elton Trueblood :
Above all else love God alone;
Bow down to neither wood or stone.
God's name refuse to take in vain;
The Sabbath rest with care maintain.
Respect your parents all your days;
Hold sacred human life always.
Be loyal to your chosen mate;
Steal nothing neither small nor great.
Report, with truth, your neighbor's deed;
And rid your mind of selfish greed.

  • Ambleside Online Poetry selections for September, October, November, and December
  • Watch Latin video (we are using First Form by Memoria Press)
  • Latin recitation & flashcard drill
  • Review math facts & phonograms

Friday Fine Arts Extended Morning Time:
  • Art History: We will be watching & discussing a series of youtube videos beginning with this one:
  • Classical Music:
There are a few things that have been a part of MT in the past or that I want to include in the future, but for now they are on hold.  I do plan to add these at some later point:

LOVE your plan! I may adopt some of your ideas. I've thought about starting some latin with my youngers (the boys are a lost cause - :) ). Especially love the prehistoric video and Holst "Planets".

Kerry,
I never got very far with Latin with my older boys. We tried once and then Timothy did French in high school and Nicholas, James, Nathaniel AND Christopher-Spanish.
I finally got around to teaching Latin after I took an Wheelocks class. So my 6th son had 2 years of Latin and now the others do too.
