Nutcracker - Tchaikovsky Study

this photo came from http://www.sxc.hu/photo/673850

Today I made a spur of the moment decision. My son Christopher asked if we were going to be doing a special unit for Christmas. I had told the boys we were not but I changed my mind this morning. They are only young once and this is an opportunity for me to relax the schedule and enjoy time with the boys. I was going to press on with our regular studies but something changed my mind this morning. We are going to be studying the Nutcracker and Tchaikovsky for the next three weeks until we take our Christmas break. For now I am going to be listing the links I will be using. I will be adding to this as we go along. I will mark the new parts in some way or do a new post with additions. I hope this will help someone out.We are looking forward to the study. We watched the Nutcracker today, this version and did a couple pages to get us started. I have some other DVD versions on order from the library and some books too. I will list the resources that we use, and like, later. For now this should get you started in case you want to join us.

Free Resources
Free Craft Ideas Resources that cost $$
Well this is what I have found so far. I will keep you updated and post pictures of things we are doing as I am able. We are doing this instead of History, Science and Writing. We are still doing Math and Grammar and any TOS things we have to do for review. I could not find to many crafts. If you know of any leave me a comment.

What an awesome list of resources! You've saved me a ton of time...my little girl is ballet crazy and she will love these!

Thanks. As luck would have it I just picked up the music on cd at the library last night. I think we'll make a quick study of this.

What fun! We have friends with kids in a local ballet studio that does the Nutcracker every year, and went to see it. It was so much fun! I really appreciate your sharing these links. Monkey's young, but I've already found some in your collection that he can do.
