Last year I found that I was leaving out lots of fun stuff you probably get to do in real school. I was also kind of dreading the monotony of school day in and day out, so if I was dreading it I can only imagine what Emma must have been feeling :/
So this year I've instilled theme weeks. It's like college all over again or something.
Anyway our first week we had Penguins as our theme! And why penguins you ask?Unit Study I found online for the book. It was awesome! It had chapter work planned out that you could do for your entire schooling and covered math, vocabulary, history, etc. It was so much fun and so packed with helpful info!
Super Teacher Worksheets.
Lakeshore Learning's site. They have cute projects!
In addition to the things listed we made pbj's on fish shaped bread, snacked on goldfish crackers, read penguin books, made a penguin lapbook, and as our final event we watched March of the Penguins which the kids LOVED!!! I think that movie helped them understand penguins than anything else we studied.
So excited to share with you our themes throughout the year! If you have any ideas for themes, please let me know! :)
