This week was our registration day for American Girls and other classes at our co-op for this fall. I am excited to have a new group of girls to teach this semester. I have changed this outline a little bit from the last time I did this class. I changed a few things that didn't work or that we didn't have time to do. I hope it will be a great semester!

*This outline may change without notice... If I can’t find the craft supplies I need or the snack recipes. My main intention with the crafts (and snacks) are to heighten the girls interest in learning about different periods of history. Hopefully the above collection of crafts will do just that!


Esther 3:6
Yet having learned who Mordecai’s people were, he scorned the idea of killing only Mordecai. Instead Haman looked for a way to destroy all Mordecai’s people, the Jews, throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes.

Esther 4:3
In every province to which the edict and order of the king came, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting, weeping and wailing. Many lay in sackcloth and ashes.

Matthew 27:37
Above his head they placed the written charge against him: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.
