American Girl class: Josefina#2 Week 6

Yesterday was our last Josefina class and our last American Girl class for the semester. The girls and I have really enjoyed studying Josefina and her time in history (1824). After we reviewed book six in the series, Changes for Josefina, we read several pages from Welcome to Josefina's World. I read the pages discussing Courtship and Marriage, and Community Celebrations.

We then began our craft. I gave each of the girls a folded piece of brown kraft paper, measuring 9" X 12". They each got five pieces of white printer paper, which they folded in half for the inside of their memory book. The girls decorated the front of their book with crayons. After it was colored, they took the brown paper and crumbled it up to make it look old/ leather-like. When they were ready, with the book pages inside the cover, I hole punched it two times near the edge of the booklet. They put a piece of red yarn through the holes (any color would be ok), and tied a bow. Then the memory book was finished!

We had homemade bread for snack, since that is what Josefina was learning to make in the book. I didn't bring butter or honey for the bread, but that would've been a nice addition. (Actually our bread was store bought french bread, but worked fine!) Most of the girls enjoyed the bread, even though it was plain.
After snack, we worked on finishing our weaving projects. The girls did a little more weaving, and we took it off of the cardboard looms, according to these directions. You'll need to scroll down to the lower part of the page, to the heading "What the Children Do." The girls did a great job working on their weaving. Some of the "rugs" were smaller than others, depending on how much class time they really worked on it. My daughter took hers home and is finishing it today. (age 7)

It was a wonderful class, filled with smiles, hugs and thank yous. I even got a bouquet of tulips and birthday painting from one of the students. (My birthday is tomorrow!) I will miss these sweet girls and look forward to seeing some/ most of them in the fall!

 The 2:00 class...

 All done! Lots of blue! (Like the tardis!)
 Nice job!

I hope all of my girls and their families have a great summer! I've loved having classes with each and every one of you!

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
