It is week 1 of Coronacation for many of you and as promised I will be doing book readings and preparing activities to keep your pequeños learning at home. This week is Grossology: Germs, Poop & Farts. Stop rolling your eyes. Your nenes will love it and I am here for anything that will engage nenes in learning. Additionally, it’s the perfect segway for explaining why they will be learning at home in the coming weeks. If you’d like to see a general overview of what will be provided read about it here.
Grossology at a glance:
Book readings will take place at 9:15am CST Monday-Friday. Each day I will share a Pinterest board with activities that you can do. Finally, I will also share a Google Drive link to academic activities that I will be creating for you to get some more traditional school type assignments done. Resources will be available in English and Spanish if I can create them quickly enough. I will also try to include some differentiation by age/grade. These will be generic, and target toddler/early PreK, Early Elementary, Upper Elementary, and I will try to create book studies for 2nd grade and up, but these will take longer to create. I am making these available for $FREE.99, for the time being, for members of my Facebook Book Nook. If you join us later and don’t see the post always check the announcements section at the top of the page or search #coronacation.

Remember that the goal is to keep kids engaged in learning at home while schools are closed. I’m not providing a curriculum so there is no scope and sequence. I’m just trying to match activities to books so your nenes can be exposed to reading, writing, math, science, and art on a regular basis.
