Homer members know that learning to read together at home makes all the difference for a child’s future. It’s also lots of fun. Here are some parent tips on learning to read through Aesop’s Fables.
We thought you’d enjoy this quick and crafty guide (created by our education experts & artists) for an afternoon of laughter and learning at home with your child. All you’ll need is your Learn with Homer app and a few simple ingredients for a wrap-up snack.
Grab a blanket and your iPad, and hop over to Story Time in the Homer app. Find the Aesop fable called The Peacock and read it aloud with your child. When you’re done, try asking the following questions:
- What do you think the moral “Do not give up freedom for beauty" means?
- What could you say to the Peacock to make him feel better?
Head back to Homer’s carousel and navigate to Discover the World. In the Feathered Friends balloon, find the lesson called Peacocks and read it together.
When you’re finished, revisit some of the academic vocabulary terms like omnivore and Peafowl and ask if your child can explain the definitions again.
