One of the best ways to get your homeschool morning off to an amazing start is with morning time. This I am learning after so many years of homeschooling.
If you’re struggling with routine, structure, finding a starting point in your day, or if you feel like you’re missing out on making memories…. I have the perfect solution for you. You are going to love these done-for-you morning time lesson plans. They are certainly a game changer!!
My friend Pam Barnhill has been homeschooling longer than me and is a former school teacher. I shared her homeschool planner with you a few months back.
She and her team have some of the most amazing products for homeschool moms and their morning time plans will not disappoint.
I first learned about morning time about three years ago. I was doing a search on Pinterest and came across Pam’s lesson plans. I already knew her as a fellow homeschooler and blogger and loved her podcasts. I have been hooked on her plans ever since.
She has about seventeen different themes to choose from. They go from preschool age on up to older elementary age. I will tell you more about some of these topics in just a second, but first I want to tell you what comes in these plans when you buy them.
This time around I grabbed the Hibernation Term for Luke Henry. Honestly, a lot of this content will interest my older kids and we can always adjust according to skill level.
Each morning time plan includes:
- complete done-for-you lesson plan (most are ten weeks or longer)
- memory work
- picture study
- nature study
- book list
She includes a traditional 5 day lesson plan layout AND a loop schedule option of those who need and want a bit more flexibility.
As you can see, this really is a comprehensive learning kit, especially for elementary age and younger. It can be more than just your morning time or morning basket time if you so choose.
Morning Time Packs:
Here is a quick run down of the morning time themes she offers.
- Seasonal (like Fall, Summer, Spring)
- Advent/Advent Epiphany
- Middle Ages (perfect for older elementary kids)
- Early Modern (perfect to add for my 11 year old twins as we are doing American History this year)
- Ancient Times
You can find all of them here.
What are your biggest struggles with getting your homeschool day started? Have you ever considered a morning time routine?
Disclosure: I have been given free access to Pam's morning time lesson plans. They are super awesome. I have used them in the past long before I was given free access. I am an affiliate for her products which means I will make a couple of bucks if someone buys a plan.
