Morning Time Plans for Cycle 1
Morning time is simply a daily practice in a homeschool family whereby all the children come together with the parent to focus on the subjects that the family can do together in the pursuit of truth, beauty, and goodness. Too often our school day is dominated by the ‘skill subjects’ of language and math which can leave little time for the liberal arts of poetry, literature, art appreciation, handicrafts, dialectic discussion, and Scripture study. This can leave both the parent and child with a lack of enthusiasm for the beauty and natural curiosity of learning and discovery. Morning time allows a family to nourish their souls together and build relationship in a conversational setting by prioritizing noble ideas. This eBook contains the plans for all 24 weeks of Cycle 1 Classical Conversations. But even if you don’t use Classical Conversations curriculum, 98% of this download will still be useful to you!

21 Days of Gratitude
For a believer, gratitude is the secret and essential ingredient for a life filled with joy. God’s Word teaches so much about the benefits of gratitude and commands us countless times to give thanks. Thanksgiving transforms anxiety into peace, it energizes us in the midst of a trial, grants hope for tomorrow and strengthens our witness to unbelievers. Unfortunately, the practice of gratitude does not come naturally, especially to children. In this study, your child will embark on a journey of thankfulness by taking the gratitude challenge. They will search the scriptures for all it has to say about gratitude. They will keep an ongoing list of thanksgivings and write letters to loved ones expressing their gratitude. They will be given a ‘Put it into Practice’ assignment each day to help them be a doer of God’s Word. This study can be used independently for older children or is a great study to be completed with a parent for littler ones.

The Book of James has been referred to as the ‘Proverbs of the New Testament’ because it contains so many practical lessons for the believer. In this study your child will read James many times through to gain as much wisdom as possible. There are twenty lessons in this study to help them grow in faith and wisdom. Each day your child will read one whole chapter and then write out what was gained from that day’s lesson by answering questions and writing out responsive prayers. Sometimes they will be reading the same chapter for a few days in a row. Reading portions of God’s Word over and over can be a good way to truly gain an understanding of what God is trying to tell us.
In this study your child will learn twenty different names that the Bible uses to refer to Jesus. Learning the names of Jesus can help us gain a better understanding of His nature and character. In each study, they will look up and write out two verses that use that particular name of Jesus. Your child will also be encouraged to write what they understand the verses to say. Then they will write out a prayer using that particular name of Jesus. Declaring the different names of Jesus in prayer can be a great way to express praise to Him and remind us of His character!
