Memoria Press Kindergarten {Review – Part IV – Copybook, Bible, & Memory}

CMM CCC-K

Oh, how I am enjoying remembering our past year in curriculum! Recommend recommend! After math comes… Copybook & Memory and this contains a Bible story from the Golden Children’s Bible and use of the Memoria Press Copybook I. It is laid out to read the story on Monday, Language Lesson and memorization of the relevant scripture on Tuesday. Copy and trace the verse on Wednesday with sometimes some math practice pages thrown into the practice those numbers on Wednesday. Thursday is a proof and correction date with recitation added and Friday ends with time to illustrate and review.

– starting the morning

‘Wayfarers Ancients’ – starting the morning with Tot, PreK, and LG (lower grammar). 5 year old reading aloud from ‘The Beginners Bible’ while her 3 year old sister listens and their 6 month old brother is flailing at a board book copy of ‘The Beginners Bible Book of Prayers’. On other days I’ve read the same Bible story from our ‘Family Reading Bible’. In the next time through Wayfarers Ancients we will use the ‘Egermeier’s Bible Story Book’. I partially want to read it now. But with AppleBlossom (5) reading basic stuff now as she does well in her phonics it makes more sense to have her read something on her level. After all another four years she’ll be 9 and Egermeier’s definitely works then. And I’ll have the Toddlers version of that to go along then as well! And now back to reality. He’s six month old today!!

The Friendly Beasts: An Old English Christmas Carol

A classic Christmas story that shares the real meaning of the holiday, but told from an unexpected perspective. Included are the music, lyrics, and a CD with two songs performed by award-winning artist Rebecca St. James (The Friendly Beasts & Shine Your Glory Down).

As the song lyrics unfold, each animal-a cow, camel, dove, donkey, and sheep-explains what gift they brought to the baby. The holiday message, lyrical themes, and beautiful images created by veteran illustrator Vojtech will keep readers coming back to the book again and again. As an added bonus, the book contains a CD with two songs performed by award-winning artist Rebecca St. James (The Friendly Beasts & Shine Your Glory Down), spoken narration, and some of Rebecca’s favorite Christmas memories. Christ-centered, creative, and memorable for children and adults alike, The Friendly Beasts brings new life to a treasured story. This book is the perfect holiday gift, an attention-grabbing classroom aid, or simply a book to read to children before bedtime, whether at Christmas or any time of the year.
