Fairmount Community Library introduces homeschool curriculum packets
Do you have a child in Pre-K through second grade? The Fairmount Community Library is now offering homeschool curriculum packets, which include lesson plans, activities and more. Registration is required.
“When we heard that many local families decided to keep their children home from preschool this fall, we started to ask if there was a gap that the library could fill,” said Brenda Shea, Director of the Fairmount Community Library, in a press release. “Our team discussed supplying monthly curriculum packets that we could print on demand based on the need in the community. We brainstormed offering an online preschool experience, so children still feel like they are in a class setting. Our teacher, Miss Karen, discusses weather, seasons, holidays and basics such as letters and numbers once a week. We are already getting positive feedback from our families who tell us they love this opportunity.”
