After taking the summer off, we are starting back with our preschool at home this week. I’m looking forward to it, because Bryson has asked to “do preschool” several times lately.
I’ve planned different themes for each week, but those are always subject to change. If Bryson is interested in a theme, we’ll continue you with it for longer or if he’s ready to move on, we’ll cut it short. I asked him which book he wanted to start with and he picked “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” by Eric Carle. After searching the web, I put together a Brown Bear Pinterest board with ideas, activities, and printables.
After some time spent planning, printing, laminating, and putting everything together, I think we are ready. I’m still loving my Scotch laminator and I’m super happy with the quality for only $30! The cheaper laminating pouches have worked great too with no problems.
Bryson will be 4 in December and he amazes me with his logic and how he can put things together in his head. Each week, we’ll focus on a theme or book, a letter, colors, and numbers. We’ll also incorporate lots of play as I think learning should absolutely be fun. Hands-on activities and crafts will be a big part of our preschool at home. I’ve made a fresh batch of homemade playdough with all the colors in Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Preschool at Home Planned Themes:
The plan is to include Bella Grace whenever possible. This week I have a fun eye-spy bottle for her and I printed several sheets for her to color. She’s welcome to join us in all activities and the girl loves books, drawing, etc. so I have high hopes that she’ll happily participate.
You can follow me on Pinterest for tons of preschool at home ideas. I have boards dedicated to books, themes, and characters. Each board contains links to fabulous resources- printables, craft ideas, and other learning tools. You can also look back at our previous preschool posts for kid-friendly crafts and ideas.
