I am going to do my best to follow and post a theme of activities each week to do during the summer. These activities will include fun outdoor activities, crafts, reading/storytelling, and other learning ideas.
It is important to keep the mind fresh during summer break so kids are ready for school when it is time to go back.
I am not taking it too heavy on the learning side, I want summer to be a fun time for exploring and play. I still want the kids to look forward to summer break.
This is the first year I am trying a 'plan' during the summer. I will be posting our activities here and other activities on my Facebook page Big Energy Little Learners.
I hope you get inspired!
Here are activities for week 2:
Week 2-SUPER HEROES
The super hero theme was awesome! It was very active and The Dragons loved that. It seemed that it also made everybody feel special. Each dragon was their own type of hero and they tried out being different types of heroes and villains.
It was also a very creative week, many different story starters with superheros that can encourage story telling or writing. There were so many stories this week there was no way I could keep up with all of them.
Here are is a list of links to the super hero activities we did:
On the learning side The Dragons were Super Spellers!
Little Dragon had more handwriting then spelling practice for this.
We played guess the super power
I wrote a small example of what the hero could do and The Dragons guessed what their power would be.
We brainstormed super powers
Some things we didn't do was have a super hero movie night or playing out our favorite movie or comic.
There was plenty of pretend but it is hard to take pictures when you are flying around being a super hero. :)
I love reading comments so please share what summer activities you are doing this week!
