I am creating worksheets that parents and teachers can use to easily give activities to their children. We need grab and go work sheets so that we can easily create a schedule of learning for our preschoolers.
Our goal for preschool learning should be to help our children to succeed with the rest of their education and beyond. The focus should be on success. Small victories that build up to a feeling of accomplishment each day.
Learning Outside The Box - Our Typical Day
Here is a sample of a typical day. We get started lazily and get some food in our faces. Next, we brush our teeth and complete any hygiene responsibilities we may have. I'll get some play time in to give him some one on one time. Before we officially start.
We write our names. We trace our names once every day and write the date next to it. Next, we will do another worksheet of some kind. Letters, numbers, or counting. We will then do take break. I tell him its creative free play time. In reality I use this time to scramble to create the next activity.
The next things on our agenda is either coloring, cutting, gluing, or all of the above. We don't like to be too monotonous with our activities. Some days we will do sight word flash cards, counting, or letter sounds. Everything is a learning opportunity. What's next? did you guess? Break time. This time there is a fruit or healthy snack to go with it.
This is where we usually take our time to get ready for a bike ride. We put sunscreen on, get water and snacks, and pack our backpacks. We get on our bikes and ride to a spot in the woods or the beach.
