Homeschool Theme: Spring

It seems only logical to have our next homeschool theme to be having to do with everything spring. So this week expect all things eggs, flowers, bunnies, lion/lamb. This week’s activities will be some of your favorites.

Reading

Here are a few of my theme books. Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hatches an Egg, An Egg is Quiet, Country Bunny, Runaway Bunny, Rechenka’s Eggs to name a few. (I’ve split this weeks activities into a few different days, Dr. Seuss, Eggs, bunnies, lion/lamb.) So depending on your day, you can read different books. Check out our Favorite Easter books here.]

Writing

Write a story about how the Easter bunny lost his hop. Decorate the egg. Remember depending on ages, it will look very different. Younger kids might color their story. Preschool aged might dictate a story and Kindergarteners will write and you will have to piece the language together for their story.

Here is a fun writing template that could be used to write the story in.
