So, even though changes are happening. I have 2 boys who are smart little whips! They blew through our basic stuff all Spring and early Summer.
I knew that I needed to expand our day to keep them enthusiastic about school.
So, after much research, I chose a printable curriculum to add to our daily Time4Learning preschool lessons. Yes, we did printables last year but it was what I found here and there, not a laid out 10 month crafts, theme, lessons, books, etc. day. I have learned that I am too busy with these kids AND homeschooling AND my online work AND running a childcare AND running a house to make sure I get it all covered.
This has a theme for the month, with letters, numbers, shapes, etc. you are working on. Craft ideas with supplies needed and directions, books that you can use along with the theme, printables, circle time songs, ideas for sensory bins, etc. I am really pleased and excited to try it.
We will be reviewing all our T4L lesssons but will be jumping around so that we can use them along with our hand work and it should go together.
We start next Tuesday! I have the first 3 days aka next Tues-Thurs planned out and bought the few supplies I did not have. Changed a few things around to suit my kiddos AND found a few more ideas on Pinterest! LOVE Pinterest!
Trying to decide if I want to get a lesson planner so I don’t have to scribble all over the teacher handbook for this program. Then I can write down what I am adjusting this year, additions, etc.
Next week is Welcome to school, creating our face(still need to grab a couple of cheap mirrors for this) in a craft, apples and the letter A. I need to get a couple of different apples this weekend for us to taste and graph as well. And print all the stuff out for the week.
Stay tuned for further adventures of Preschoolers Day by Day and updates on HOW our preschool year goes! Cross your fingers!
