Morning Time- Since morning time is a whole-family event, H will be using Idea Nest Volume 2 as well. I will add on to this with poetry books and additional read-alouds.
Handicrafts- We are going to focus on origami as a handicraft this year. Idea Nest 2 was our first introduction to origami, and it was a great handicraft that even my little boys could participate in!
