Have a horse lover? Is your child obsessed with adding to their herd of Schleich horses? Or maybe it's Breyer or Safari brand? It doesn't matter the brand, and honestly they don't even HAVE to be collectors at all. A simple love for horses will do, and if so, Horse School is right for you. ;)
It is one of my passions to take my children’s passions and turn them into learning opportunities.
Horse School is intended to harness a love for horses and use it for expanding your child’s knowledge and skills in a variety of areas. Horse School functions as a unit study on horses, it will incorporate reading, research, writing, and art, with various amounts of history and science as they relate to horses. I have also included some fun and creative ways to research in effort to engage every type of learner.
Horse School features study pages for ten different horse breeds/types. Children will be asked to research the breeds and fill out the corresponding pages in their workbooks. The pages consist of fill-in the blank questions, additional study suggestions, customizable horse art, short story writing, and even has ways to incorporate their specific horse collection. There is also a Collect-A-Horse Vocabulary page, with a challenge to collect ten previously unknown horse terms to write down, look up, and define.
I originally created this for my 11 year-old daughter who loves to collect different brands of realistic horse models. This way she can learn as she does something she loves. However, Horse School can be used by seasoned horse collectors, horse collectors who are just starting out, or children who prefer to just study the horses and not actually collect them.
My favorite place to buy horses for my daughter to collect is on Amazon. There are a wide variety of horse figures by several popular brands. If your child does not have the specific horse for the portion of their workbook, have them find a corresponding horse on Amazon and put it on their wishlist for their birthday or Christmas, or have them do work around the house to earn it. They can fill out the pages without actually having the horse based on the picture of the one on their “wishlist.”
Horse School is a perfect way to encourage learning inside the home, whether you are a homeschooler looking to add a little fun and creativity to your schedule, or a parent who simply wants to encourage learning at home.
Learning should be fun, make it painless and fulfilling by pairing it with something your child LOVES.
