This week’s Along the Alphabet Path studies is all about letter H! If you are unaware of what the Along the Alphabet Path is go to THIS post to read all about it.
Full disclosure, this week was not the most thrilling week of our Along the Alphabet Path journey. Letter H was in the midst of holiday chaos and trying to catch up in our normal homeschool studies.
Letter H is for Herb Twopence Fairy and Saint Helen

Since our days were a bit chaotic, we did our Alphabet Path lesson in the evening when daddy was home. One of the many perks of homeschooling is you can do schoolwork whenever! The kids painted pictures of the herb twopence fairy while I read the story aloud. You can get the Flower Fairies Alphabet coloring book on Amazon or you may have some luck Googling the Herb Twopence fairy image.
We also learned a couple of facts using my flower facts card about the herb twopence flowers.
The saint of the week is Saint Helen! We said a prayer to Saint Helen using our Alphabet Saint prayer card. Then they colored a picture of Saint Helen. You can get the coloring page we used here.
Both the Saint Helen prayer cards and Herb Twopence Flower Fact cards are available to download for free.
