As usual, we started off with reading the Along the Alphabet Path story and oral narration. I use a plain notebook that I keep all their oral narrations in. After reading the Alphabet Path story, we listened to the Alphabet Fairy music while the kids painted their Fuchsia fairy pictures. You can get the Flower Fairies Alphabet coloring book on Amazon or you may have some luck googling it. I highly recommend printing on cardstock if you plan on painting them. We also learned a couple of facts using my flower facts card about the fuchsia flowers.
The saint featured this week is Saint Francis of Assisi! We said a prayer to Saint Francis and kept his prayer card out so we could see it throughout the week. You can get the coloring page we used here.
Both the Saint Francis prayer cards and Fuchsia Flower Fact cards are available to download for free.
