Welcome to BookSpring Weekly Themes
To encourage learning at home, BookSpring is offering this delightful and easy online reading program free of charge. Each week, we will feature a new at-home learning lesson for families with children ages 3-5 and 6-8 years old, in both Spanish and English. Bibi, the BookSpring Butterfly, will introduce the new theme with fun activities, vocabulary, and books that you can read together online…or even download to your own device and keep.
Scroll down to see each of our weekly themes. The books and activities in themes in green are best for ages 3-5, and the ones in blue are best for 6-8 You can pick up at any time, and go back to any you might have missed. Click on Bibi for a YouTube video that explains Weekly Themes for parents.
As you use these lessons together with your family, please share photos of your family reading and doing the activities at home on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram #BookSpring #ReadTogether. This helps encourage other families to get together and read, too!
Reading together is an easy way for parents and caregivers to help children develop their literacy skills while creating lasting bonds. We hope you enjoy these activities and come back every week!
