It has been a little bit quiet here on the blog lately, but that is because we have been super busy behind the scenes working on a few big projects. Although we are not done with it yet, we are happy to announce that we will be releasing a new HOMESCHOOL COMPANION series this summer. It is called Cultural Connections and it will take our students Around the World! After creating our own passport, we will be jumping all around the globe to learn about different countries and customs.
Cultural Connections Homeschool Companion Guides
These Cultural Connections units will be set up just like our popular Simple Seasons units with weekly guides that feature literature, poetry, arts and crafts projects, recipes, and non-fiction books. Each unit will cover 12 weeks and highlight 3 different countries with 4 weeks spent per country. The books and activities will be geared towards children 6-8 years old and will be the perfect next step after Simple Seasons. We plan to create 6-8 Cultural Connections units over the next two years. We hope to have the first unit available at the end of June. This will provide our readers with over two years of homeschooling plans and activities to use during first through third grade.
We are also working on updating our Wee Folk Art Homeschool Companion website. Please be patient and ignore the mess there as we move things around and set up some new features. We will be posting the Cultural Connections crafts and activities on the Homeschool Companion site so that they are easy for our fans to find.
For those of you who like to plan ahead, Cultural Connections unit one will explore the countries Japan, France, and Kenya. We will have more details for you in a few weeks. Get ready for an adventure!
Simple Seasons Coloring Pages
We also have a new addition to the Simple Seasons units. Over the summer and into the fall, we will be posting our own hand drawn, nature based, alphabet coloring pages. These can be used along with or in place of the scheduled flower fairies coloring pages. They are not available yet…. but we will start posting them online shortly.
