Project Based Learning

This one picture represents several lessons. I love to teach like this because my children learn so much without realizing it. The key is to identify the skills and subjects that need practice and work that into one or two lessons, which culminates into a project.

Here were the lessons:

1) Reading - We started by reading a sight word book.
2) Spelling & sight word study - These are all sight words that we study made into a sentence.
3) Grammar - We practiced sentence structure. Spacing of letters & words, and punctuation.
4) Fine motor skills - Peeling backing and pasting onto the paper was fine motor exercise.
5) Science - One question about how many sticky fingers a frog has led us to studying frog species and frog anatomy.

And that's how you fold many lessons into a project!
