Usually, school themes have to do with apples, fall, leaves, getting to know new friends, and all those traditional themes.
But, we homeschool, and it’s just now changing to cooler temps. What to do?
For our Back to School theme, we kinda let our library story time do our theme for us. What better way?
Convenient and I didn’t have to think or clean up anything! Bonus.
Our new storybook lady this year is pretty awesome. That makes all the difference in the world! And she loves kids. She spends so much time on the lessons and provides great experiential learning every Wednesday for about an hour.
My girls are the oldest kids there and they usually help clean up the crafts. Without being asked. Love them.
They like front row seating.
The books for this session were fun. Great illustrations and animals!
I’d never heard of some of these book selections. They’re just great! Always fun to meet new book friends.
These are some of our absolute favorites. Oh, the giggles when she read them.
The kids were provided little booklets with colored cardstock covers and white pages inside. Pictures from magazines were already cut out and the kids could choose them to glue into their books to make collages.
Tori made a butterfly book. She wrote a title on her cover.
Tori also drew butterflies in addition to pasting pictures.
Kate made a book of her favorite animals. Kate wrote the names of all her favorite animals under their pictures.
Alex made a transportation book. He really, really loved this activity. And we all got cool bookmarks!
