During the beginning of our quarantined homeschooling, we followed the Scholastic Learning at Home lessons that were made free and accessible to those who, like me, found themselves acting as the LOs teacher overnight. (Scholastic, THANK YOU!) In our house we followed these lessons daily and used them as the stepping stone and basis for other activities and lessons we would complete. Some of these lessons were about bugs – ladybugs, caterpillars, butterflies, etc. Below I have included images and descriptions of the variety of activities we did to round out our lessons on theme.
Learning at home has evolved over the course of the past three months, as it will take on new form throughout the summer and possibly beyond. Using a central topic or theme has been helpful in ensuring we have a focus each and every week.
