Advent Plan- As a family we learn a new prayer over Advent and Lent (Advent we plan to learn the Anima Christi in English, then in Latin for Lent.)
- We love the Holy Heroes Advent Adventure
- As a family reduce the level of sarcasm in our home (following the Gospels "let you no mean no and your yes mean yes... anything else is from the evil one.")...
- The Advent Unit Study on Serendipity.com - Advent Unit Study
Read Jotham's Journey
The Advent wreath (the children make the candles from Emmanuel Books)
The Jesse Tree... we read the scripture daily and each child colors an ornament-sized picture for the day and pastes it to the HUGE tree that I draw and we all color. It hangs on the wall in the kitchen... (I use theAdvent, Christmas, Epiphany in the Domestic Church book by the Fournier family" for the ornaments and readings.
The Advent Calendar - we read this daily at breakfast and then on child hangs this on a mini tree in the kitchen.
- Starting 12/17 The O'Antiphons are the children's copy work.
