We’ve been utilizing the morning basket for over a year. It’s an extremely helpful tool for incorporating all of those “missing” subjects from regular school. We incorporate art, music, foreign language, and so many rich, wonderful read-alouds through morning time. Here’s a peek into our homeschool morning basket.

What’s in Our Homeschool Morning Basket?

Here are all of the items I keep in our morning basket. We do morning time each day to start off our school day, and like I said, it’s our favorite thing!

If you’re interested in seeing me do morning time (in real life!) join my membership for new homeschool families, Thriving at Home! I added more info about it below!


Morning Time Folders (for kids)

Morning Time Mom Binder

Gentle + Classical “All About Me” + Calendar Pages from the Kindergarten Binder

Clipboards (1 per child)

Nature Journal (1 per child, plus mom’s)

Crayons (we love these)


Nursery Rhyme Book

Nature Poems Collection

Aesop’s Fables

Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses
