It has been a few weeks since we left off at Letter F but I am back with this week’s Along the Alphabet Path studies which is all about letter G! If you are unaware of what the Along the Alphabet Path is go to THIS post to read all about it.
Letter G is for Gorse Fairy and Saint George

As usual, we started off with reading the Along the Alphabet Path story and oral narration. After reading the Alphabet Path story, we listened to the Alphabet Fairy music while the kids painted their Gorse fairy pictures. You can get the Flower Fairies Alphabet coloring book on Amazon or you may have some luck Googling the Gorse fairy image. I highly recommend printing on cardstock if you plan on painting them so the paper doesn’t get too soggy.
We also learned a couple of facts using my flower facts card about gorse flowers.
The week’s featured saint is Saint George! We said a prayer to Saint George and kept his prayer card out so we could see it throughout the week. Then they colored a cool stained-glass picture of Saint George. You can get the coloring page we used here. Unfortunately due to covering from illnesses, I didn’t take any photos.
Both the Saint George prayer cards and Gorse Flower Fact cards are available to download for free.
