Lessons for Life with the Berenstain Bears

Today we would like to introduce you to Jill, from The Enchanted Homeschooling Mom.  She has just put the finishing touches on a 32 week curriculum using the books about The Berenstain Bears. She is offering her ideas and activities for free to friends and readers across the web.  The curriculum, Year of Lessons with the Berenstain Bears, is appropriate for children ages PreK - 3. The majority of lessons deal with Social Studies, Science, and Language Arts.
In putting together the lessons Jill has chosen topics from the text and expanded on them with age appropriate worksheets, projects, and discussions.  The entire curriculum is something children can relate to in the real world using the favorite furry family as a guide. Each lesson ranges from 20 minutes – 1 hour in length, depending on the preferences of you and your children.
You will need 16 Berenstain Bears Books to complete this curriculum. Each book will be used for a lesson plan intended to span 10 days, or a 2-week period. Worksheets are included. Each individual lesson plan will explain suggested materials in more detail.

If you are in the process of planning your lessons for the 2011-2012 school year, check it out! This might be the series for you.  Thanks Jill!
