A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree is our second installation of our popular Charlotte Mason-inspired A Gentle Advent™ courses. These beautiful Advent journeys include Scripture, handicrafts, poetry and music study, tea times, art study, and allow you to slow down and savor the beauty of the season with your family.
A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree
A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree is a hybrid online course containing both digital elements and PDFs for you to print, activities for you to complete, and inspiration to guide you through this season.
When you have purchased A Gentle Advent™ – Jesse Tree, you will see a “My Courses” tab in the main menu. Click there and begin with the Welcome Module for you, the parent, and the links to your 24 daily modules. The activities are mainly Charlotte Mason inspired. The 24 daily modules are for viewing and working through with your children.
The course begins with an Advent Scripture Journal. The Scripture study is done daily to encourage the habit of devotion. There are printables, recipes, handicrafts, art and poetry studies, hymns and carols, an advent calendar and more included in the course. Each PDF printable is linked on it’s corresponding day.
These activities are all meant to flow through what our family calls “Holiday Homeschool”. We do a light version of homeschool during the holiday season and this allows us to stay in the habit of learning, but also allows us to explore the season. A Gentle Advent – Jesse Tree will work for your family through regular, light, or “take the month of December off” homeschooling.
