Every month I select a theme, a specific topic to talk about during the entire month. After the topic has been decided I then plan out our lessons, books, and activities around it.
Our current preschool theme is “The Magic of Autumn” with every theme that I createI love introducing fun, bright, descriptive and vibrant reads to my boys. Since they can’t read yet, I love showing them how magical reading can be, how one book can transport you to new places and exciting adventures.
This list of books will have your little readers learn all about the wonders of Autumn, the beauty in leaves changing color, the crisp air, all about Halloween, but most importantly about, giving, family and gratitude. The text is simplistic enough to hold your little readers’ attention and the illustrations are colorful and engaging. CONTINUE READING!
I created these fun pretty Alphabet Printables for us to practice letter recognition and mainly because this week we started practicing writing our ABC’s. Flashcards have definitely been an essential tool for our daily lesson plans. They’re visually stimulating and can be used in endless possible ways for various types of activities no matter what grade your little ones are in.
How we use our flashcards:
Start by introducing each letter and word. (A is for apple.)
Identify the difference between an uppercase and lowercase letter.
Divide a word into syllables (ap-ple)
Talk about what you see in the pictures (use body motions and sounds.)
Use the word in a short simple sentence. (The Apple is Red.)
Most important have fun.
These alphabet cards will work best when printed on card stock but regular paper will be fine too. However, they will last even longer if you get them laminated. If you don’t have a laminator, check your local thrift store, I recently got one for $3.50. You can also check if your local library has one you can use for free. CONTINUE READING!
