We took all the hard work out of planning Morning Time!
Authored by Genie Shaw of Barefoot Abbey the plans include six weeks of Morning Time activities for Catholic families for Advent through Epiphany.
This is a digital product. Nothing will be mailed.
Designed for grades 1-6 the plans can easily be adapted to include preschool to adult age groups.
Topics and subjects included in these plans are:
- Prayer – St. Andrew Christmas Novena and other seasonal prayers
- Music appreciation -Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Hymns
- Hymns – six hymns and carols

- Picture books – Fabulous selections to accompany the subject areas
- Read Alouds – Four great chapter books scheduled for you to choose between
- Saint of the Day – An appendix that links to a reading for each day’s saint
The lesson plans are designed for ease-of-use for new Morning Time Moms and veterans alike. They feature:
- Intro material with tips and instructions for doing all the subjects
- A weekly grid that schedules each subject for you daily
- OR a loop schedule laying out all the subjects and activities to be done — just do the next thing(s) each day
- A blank grid to add your own subjects or resources to the plan if you want
- Printable booklist to take to the library
- Copies of prayers, Scripture, and poems to print for your family
- An easy-to-use web page with links to all the videos and tutorials in the plans, as well as links to the books and art supplies for your convenience
* Note: Completing nature study will require a purchase of additional resources. Other books can be purchased, borrowed from the library, or you may substitute similar titles from your own collection.
The sample contains a smattering of pages from the intro, an example of a printable booklist page, printable poem page, weekly grid, and loop schedule page.
