This summer, the July & August Morning Time Guides have been combined. As with all the plans we make for our homeschool days, I desire that these bundles are flexible and don’t create undue stress on the teacher or the student. This month, as my family navigates some serious health needs for a loved one, I needed to embrace that desire for myself and chose to publish only one bundle this summer. I hope you find that this bundle provides continued learning for your family while also helping you make good memories, enjoy good food, and have lots of fun. Thank you so much for being here.

A Simple Guide to Morning Time | July & August  2022

July & August Morning Time Guide Poetry

For the past few months, Robert Louis Stevenson has been the poet of choice for the morning time bundles. He was skilled at making simple things feel special, especially when looking through the lens of children. I hope you have enjoyed studying his works.

You can read a short biography of his life here: Brittanica Kids

You can find more of his poetry here: Poetry Foundation

ARTJuly & August Morning Time Guide Art

Berries are a summer treat that so many of us enjoy. If you have followed Fresh Wanderings very long, you know that blueberries have had a central role in my life since I was very young. I have included many blueberry recipes in past morning-time bundles and blog posts. Like the one found here: Blueberry Cheesecake | A Summer Favorite and here: A Delicious Recipe for Blueberry Pie Filling.

Yet, another summer favorite is the blackberry. Unfortunately, it hasn’t received quite as much attention. This month we will enjoy this delicious summer fruit in our art study and the included recipe. I hope you enjoy them.

In the July & August morning time guide we will study a painting by an English artist named Elizabeth Adela Forbes. I found little information about her personal life but many of her works. You can find them here: Wikimedia.

July & August Morning Time Guide Scripture

This month we continue to learn more about God’s character in our Bible study. The truths we have learned over the last year are foundational in a believer’s spiritual walk. I hope you continue working out these truths in your own life.

Scripture references included this month are:

  • Phillipians 3:9
  • Psalm 119:137
  • Jeremiah 12:1
  • Revelation 15:3

You can use this resource to aid your study: Ministry to Children

NATURE STUDYJuly & August Morning Time Guide Nature Study

Your nature study time in July and August begs you to enjoy nights outdoors. Time will be spent star gazing and sketching. Spending summer evenings outside is a fun summer activity. While you’re there, listen for the owl’s hoot, the cricket’s chirp, and the frog’s peep.

This bundle includes instructions for mini-painted barn quilt star patterns. I have always been delighted to see barn quilts scattered throughout the country. They always add charm to the farmland they sit on. This craft will be a fun way to bring a bit of that country charm into your home.
