Whether your child is in school, at home, or on the go, as parents, we want to make sure they learn something anytime, anywhere.
Where do you usually turn to? Do you always have books, pens, crayons and papers within your reach? Do you have the same old characters in those sheets? Worry no more, because this homeschool curriculum we will get to know has new illustrated characters, new story and concept.
Peekapak is a resource for original stories, all available for use in school, at home, or online.
From their website:
Developed by Peekapak and education experts, our home curriculum extends your child’s learning into the home. The curriculum integrates the Common Core Standards and support the development of the 4C’s (Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking & Creativity) while providing families with interactive learning opportunities through an engaging original story, creative projects, and discussions.
Here’s what I can say about the lesson we did, Tree of Happiness.
STORY, LESSON. The story is easy to read and understand. Characters are relatable and colourful. For the teacher’s materials: detailed, comprehensive, and flexible.
ACTIVITIES. A one page printable tree, perhaps? I think I saw a bigger one. Likewise, for the story, the happy phrases can be written on leaves or appear on fruits, rather than tags. I have not tried the activities here cos materials has to be printed out, so we shall do it some other time.
Since I did not have time to print out the big tree, I instead had a Q and A with my child about the story. Then I asked her to accomplish this work folder.
The last word is “loving.” She said she is happy when she is loving Daddy and Mommy. My heart melted! Such a sweet little girl. To keep the happiness higher, we danced to Pharell Williams’ Happy, learned to spell Happy, and thanked the Lord that our family is happy that moment.
Overall, Peekapak is a great product and I will recommend to fellow moms who seek activities for their children, homeschooling or not. This is a great addition to resources we are already familiar with.
