Tot-school & Preschool Themes

      Recently, my sister-in-law asked me for some of my lesson plans so she could have ideas of things to do with her children. I thought I would share them with you.
      With three children at home, 4 and under, I like to have educational activities at hand that we can do.     Otherwise, I find myself turning on Netflix or handing the kindle over. These options aren't bad but my family really needs to cut down on the screen time. As one of my 2015 goals I have put together weekly lesson plans. These lesson plans are more of a guideline for me to follow.  The themes are based on season appropriateness and family interests.  Please know that I am not a perfect mother or teacher. There are days we don't get around to having "school". I hope that these lesson themes, activities and ideas are useful for you. I also hope they help you get your creative juices flowing, because you are the one who knows your child(ren) best and how to help them learn and grow.
