It’s the time of year that everyone has been looking forward to – Summer! The days are long; the air is warm, and, for many, it’s the perfect opportunity to be outside and explore the great outdoors.
Our SPED Homeschool team has you covered. Whether you are headed out to your backyard or on an extended road trip, we know every outdoor adventure needs delicious food, fun games, and great reading. We also know that so many of our exceptional learners love to be outdoors, and there are plenty of hands-on learning ideas for them.
FIRST, let your students help you pick delicious – and mostly good-for-you – snacks. Bonus, most kids can assist with prepping any of these! Measuring, mixing, spreading, and stirring are great ways to start kids helping in the kitchen!
NEXT, get your big kids and little kids moving and playing with these large motor activities by using one of the linked products or creating your own version at home.
THEN, slow down and take a closer look at nature. Or unleash your child’s creativity, all while developing fine motor skills by using one of these linked products or your own items from home.
LAST, it’s time to hit the road! Tune in to these wonderful audiobooks or one of your family favorites from your own collection or your local library while driving or soaking up the sun!
