Many parents are finding themselves in a new role while they are homeschooling their children. As they become acclimated to this new normal, more and more resources are becoming available to assist during this time. Plus-Plus and The World of Eric Carle are now offering ways to help parents engage with their children and teach valuable lessons to keep them on track. 

Very Hungry Caterpillar

Plus-Plus has just launched an educational web page where parents can find printable activity sheets for counting, measuring and more. There are also instructions for how to build letters, numbers and more with your Plus-Plus pieces.There is also an App available in the App Store, Google Play and in a web version. Older kids will learn how to build characters from animals to robots and toddlers will learn the alphabet, counting and more. 

Visit the World of Eric Carle for fun coloring sheets and activities. Your child can print and color their own bookmarks, color the Hungry Caterpillar, start a scavenger hunt and more. The site also features lesson plans for parents-turned-teachers. Parents can access a variety of resources from a complete teaching kit to a Very Hungry Caterpillar poster and activity sheets.
