Lesson Plan: This will post on Monday for all of you moms eager to download…sorry for the delay! Items following the lesson plan are just the printables or links to websites we used to teach these plans. (Please note: On top of our lesson plan we are reading books daily that relate to our theme.)
Memory Verse: This memory card is for daily use during our calendar time. You can learn more about calendar time at 1+1+1=1 or Homeschool Creations. Our weekly devotional is an object lesson that will help your child apply the meaning of the verse to them.
Rainforest Animal Spelling- This activity will help your child begin to recognize that when letters are combined they form words.
Rainforest Animal Counting- This activity will help your child begin to read whole numbers 1-10. It will also work on counting skills.
Layers of the Rainforest Puzzle- Enjoy learning about the different layers of the rainforest with this layer puzzle and its labels.
Rainforest Beginning Writing- This activity works on beginning writing skills. You could also follow the lines to work on cutting practice.
Roll & Graph: Rainforest Animals– This activity will introduce your child to data collection and interpretation. Once you’ve completed the graph (first item to # of choice), make sure to ask simple questions. Such as, “Which color is taller? What item is that? Which color is shorter? Which item is that? How many times did we give the (item) a sticker?” Make sure to show them how to use the graph, instead of just counting the stickers.
Rainforest Plant/Animal Sort– Have fun and teach your child to group items according to their distinguishing characteristics.
Rainforest Letter Match- Helps your child identify and distinguish lower and uppercase letters. Also works on fine motor skills if you use a marker to connect the letter pairs.
Rainforest Size Sorting-Helps you child learn and sort items according to their size.
On-line Rainforest Activities– A fun interactive way to explore the rainforest with your tot. Now you will have to help you kiddo greatly, but if they are anything like E, they just want to click!
These are from Rainforest Alliance and are more advanced, and better suited for older learners. Little ones can click, but mom will be doing the thinking!
