This homeschool lesson plan is designed to go along with the book The Rainbow Fish
Creating a homeschool lesson plan around a favorite book is a great way to incorporate things your kids already enjoy in their education.
Full-fledged unit study to help your kids with sensory projects, word recognition, spelling, and vocabulary skills.
We love The Rainbow Fish and thought it would be a great choice for a fun and easy homeschool lesson plan!
With this lesson, children will learn to identify what a good friend is and how to be a good friend themselves.
Being a good friend is not always easy, and this is obvious in the book, The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.
