(This post has been in my drafts folder since November! “N” week, which we completed in December, is coming up as well… Once they are posted I’ll feel much more ready to move On to “O” week!)
~ Letter Formation ~
In addition to their Modelling Wax
letter M’s (Can you tell they were not very Motivated during M week?!?)
, the girls also worked on making the letter M using Handwriting Without Tears Hands-On Materials
and Kimberlee’s Grey Block Paper
~ Mallow Fairy Coloring Pages ~
~ Picture Book Science :: M is for Mirrors ~
(Since we don’t own a Microscope… yet!)
We did a couple experiments using Usborne Science Kit for Lights and Mirrors.
~ M is for St. Martin de Porres ~
~ M is for Memories ~
We looked through old photo albums, Grandpa’s Navy Memorabilia, and even dressed Snuggles in one of Hubby’s old baby outfits! 😉
We also read One Morning in Maine by Robert McClosky which is another one of my favorite childhood books which my dad use to read to us all of the time. Now he reads it to his Grandchildren. Such wonderful memories!
~ Crafts ~
St. Martin Paper Dolls
from Paper Dali
(made on the feast of St. Martin)
We made the “My Little Book of Church Manners” from
The Things I see at Church Faith Folder.
(We’ll save it to add to the Lap Book when we make it in the future.)
~ Serendipi-Tea time ~
Mexican Cocoa with a Mound of Mini Marshmallows
(We actually just used regular Hot Cocoa and added a dash of cinnamon…)
St. Martin’s Mice
You can find the recipe at Catholic Cuisine.
And Mandarin Oranges
(A favorite around here… They were gone before I could even get a picture!)
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
