Stories of the Child Jesus

This month we will be "traveling" around the world with this book in the hopes that we can get a little closer to the Child Jesus. Each story is from a different country so I plan on having the middle kids do their social studies from here. We will read the story together, do dictation from the book, mapwork and reading from an atlas about each country, a moral and virtue lesson, a notebook page and finally they will make a small felt flag for the country as well. So today, if you don't hear from me, it will be because we are in Dublin, Ireland with a boy named Charlie, thinking of ways to give of ourselves and all we have "in the best and wisest way to sweet Jesus for HIS Christmas gift."
