Maybe you are wondering how people get sick with a virus like COVID-19. Here is a video that explains how germs can make us sick.
Theme: Animal Studies – Spiders
Watch the story “Diary of a Spider” and read along with the book “A Spiderling Grows Up”, then explore the sections under the Puzzlers! Optional, explore the links under Dive Deeper.
Leveled Learning Extension: Sing “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” with your child. Replace the word “itsy bitsy” with other descriptions such as “very scary” “very quiet” “very silly” “very sleepy” and act out the descriptions while you sing together.

Leveled Learning Extension: Practice drawing shapes of your own. Use the side of a book as a ruler if you need a straight edge. You can draw a triangle, square, rectangle, or if you are feeling tricky even a hexagon or pentagon! For a circle, try tracing around the bottom of a cup. What other shapes can you make?
Leveled Learning Extension: Draw shapes on a paper for your child, or click on the attachment for an image of shapes. Point to and name each one. Then practice naming together. Then have your child name the shapes as you point.
