books we read
We enjoy reading books together. One of things I like about this age is that Lyda Beth never tires of repeatedly hearing a good book. In fact, after we have read it a few times, she “reads it” to me. We enjoy the book list that came with our curriculum because the recommendations solidify the theme of each unit. Here are a few of the books that we have enjoyed during this unit.
- We’re Going on a Lion Hunt
- Mouse and Lion
- Inside a Zoo in the City
- The Happy Lion
- Put me in the Zoo
- Randy’s Dandy Lions
- Would They Love a Lion?
- Pig Pig Meets the Lion
- How Loud Is A Lion?
Five roaring lions- can you hear them roar? [Roar, Roar, Roar, Roar, Roar] One ran away and then there were four. [Roar, Roar, Roar, Roar] Four roaring lions walked by the tree, one ran away and then there were three. [Roar, Roar, Roar] Three roaring lions looking right at you, one ran away and then there were two. [Roar, Roar] Two roaring lions sitting in the sun. One ran away and then there was one. [Roar] One roaring lion looking for some fun, he ran away and now there are none!My Father’s World
If you’d like a fun way to introduce animals & colors to your child, feel free to use these adorable printables. I created them to correspond with My Father’s World Curriculum | All Aboard the Animal Train. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
the curriculum we use
Whenever I was choosing a homeschool curriculum, I leaned heavily on the guidance of my sister, Angie, at Fresh Wanderings. She had already been homeschooling her children for 13 years and had tried multiple curriculums and even supplemented her own throughout the years. She strongly advised that I use My Father’s World and I am so glad that I did.
“My Father’s World Christian homeschool curriculum combines the best of Charlotte Mason’s ideas, classical education, and unit studies with a biblical worldview and global focus. They have worked hard to make homeschooling as easy as possible with their God-centric curriculum mirroring the Greco-Roman classical approach of grammar, logic, and rhetoric.” You can read about their philosophy here.
