June Lesson Plans: Beach Theme

Yet another month has rolled around! We are super excited for June because we are taking a vacation! Woo hoo! So this month we are going to be spending time learning about the beach in preparation for our trip. Jake has never seen the ocean or been to a beach so this adventure should be very fun!

I want to reiterate a few points before the download:
1. My plans are not meant to be completed in any specific order. Each day is different and Structured Play time should be a fun learning experience. Pick an activity or activities that fit the mood of your child for that day.
2. Practice activities more than once because repetition is key to gaining new skills.
3. READ, READ, READ- Read everyday and reread stories to allows your child to 'read' the books themselves. This is the first step in literacy.
4. Walk Away- Try to keep Structured Play time 'fun'. If things get frustrating to you or your child, walk away and pick up where you left off the next day. Remember it is Structured PLAY, you are not preparing for SAT Exams. Enjoy every minute!

  1. I just found your blog today and would like to print some of your lesson plans. However, docstoc.com seems to be telling me I have to pay in order to do so. Am I missing something?
