We took all the hard work out of planning Morning Time!

The plans include seven weeks of Morning Time activities all loosely based around a seasonal theme.

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 – prayers from Scripture
  • Memorization – Shakespeare
  • Music appreciation – hymns and hymn variations
  • Math – Symmetry
  • Picture study – Currier and Ives
  • Art – chalk pastels and watercolor tutorials
  • Nature Study – winter stars and constellations
  • Picture books – fabulous selections to accompany the subject areas
  • Read Alouds – two great chapter books scheduled for you to choose between

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 poems and prayers to print for your family

* Note: Completing a couple of the subjects as written will require additional resources which may be found at your local library. These include How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, Winter Bees and Other Poems of the Cold, and Moebius Noodles.

    These Morning Time Plans may have saved our homeschool year. I spent a couple hours over the Christmas break requesting library books, lining up supplies and making us each a binder, and January 2 it was literally open-and-go. My kids are LOVING the library books I “unveil” each day to accompany the different topics we uncover. All the other plans I’ve tried get thrown out when I “fail” to adhere to the “schedule,” lose track of what day we’re “supposed to be on,” or run into a supply we don’t have on hand that I wasn’t warned about. (Can you tell I know better, but I beat myself up anyway?) The loop schedule gives me permission to work at our pace. We do a separate Scripture study, prayer, memorization plus our Classical Conversations memory work added, and read aloud every day, and then however many additional topics we can get to– generally between one and three. Each time we complete a “loop,” we have a reward set up. This first time it will be a sledding day. Pam, I cannot thank you enough for a pretty, practical, complete, grace-bent tool. Levi, Ben and Noah at Snips and Snails Classical Education from Home thank you too! Just please say you’ll keep writing these plans for about 16 more years; we couldn’t live without them. 😉 <3

    I have always wanted to get into a regular habit of adding Morning Time into our homeschool routine, and thanks to these plans I was able to do that last winter. I especially appreciate the fact that these plans are easy to tweak to fit my family. The printable book list makes planning and gathering books for our book basket so easy. I also love the poetry suggestions; the printable poems are so easy to print out and put in our morning time binders.

    This was my first introduction to morning time….and let me tell you it changed my homeschool. It was the missing piece. When I started this I had been homeschooling for 14 years….and after that long it is hard to say one thing really changes your homeschool. This did. Everyone was happier, more engaged, eager to learn, and excited at the beginning of the day to start with wonderful things. You cannot go wrong with any of Pam’s morning time plans.
    We love them so much we are morning time members! Thank you Pam!!

    I have been homeschooling for 12 years. This was the first time I had heard of morning basket. It has changed the way we do school. Now we “have time” for art and music appreciation. We read now poetry every day. I thought my students might be too old to do this fun activity for too long (high school is serious stuff), but this is too good to NOT do! Morning basket is their favorite part of our day and a great way to start our schoolday.
