based on the books from Pleasant Company Publications.
This past week (Monday to Thursday), I taught a class called "An American Girl Christmas". The plan was to focus on a different American Girl each day. We learned a little about the time period, did writing activities, studied paintings from the time period, sang a couple of songs, and completed some handicrafts. The youngest girl in my class was 7 years old, while the oldest was 12.
Most of the activities that I used were from books published by Pleasant Company. I was able to find some at my local library and others were found at Amazon. At the bottom of this post I will put links for all of the books I used.
Here is a summary of today.
Tuesday - Josefina 1824
Copywork - "Christmas Eve was called "la Noche buena" - the good night. And this Christmas Eve felt like a very good night to Josefina. Nina was hers to love and care for at last."
