September Monthly Plan

*Bible Verse:  Psalm 17:8  "Keep me as the apple of your eye."    Songs for Saplings 
Bible verse activities from Totally Tots

*Brightly Beaming Resources:  We are using the Preparatory Curriculum for 2-4 year olds for Shrade

*Brightly Beaming Baby:  Nursery Age starting at 3 months for Jessna (lessons are for up to 1 year).  Each lesson is 2 weeks long and includes literature, poems, nursery rhymes, Bible, speech & vocab, classical music, lullaby, foreign language (I'm going to do some Spanish and sign language), baby game, exercise and baby massage.  I love these lessons because they give me a focus on what I can do to entertain my baby!  It's fun and she loves it.

I really like how you have included skills and chores to work on with your son. I think I'll borrow some of your ideas- my son is just about a month younger than yours! :)
