Learn how to do preschool at home
Today I’m excited to share a fabulous ebook, The Preschool Journey. It’s by Angela Thayer, a former teacher and now stay-at-home mom to two boys. She shares her ideas for learning at her blog, Teaching Mama. In her ebook, you will find:
- A simple guide to setting up preschool at home (supplies, organization, schedule)
- An overview of the important components of a home preschool
- Language and Literacy Skills
- Motor Skills
- The Arts
- Sensory Play
- Social Development
- 26 weeks of lesson plans — one for each letter of the alphabet. Within the lessons you will find:
- Ideas for sensory play
- Math and/or science activities
- Ideas for improving fine and gross motor skills
- Open-ended art projects
- Recommended book lists for each letter
- Over 50 pages of free printables to support hands-on learning
Why I recommend this book
- The Preschool Journey is a time-saver for busy parents. Researching what craft to do for each letter, finding literacy connections, getting ideas for sensory play — it all takes time. I’m an educator and a blogger – I love that sort of thing! But for many parents, it’s neither enjoyable nor practical. No worries! Angela has done it all for you.
- I love Angela’s philosophy (because it’s mine too!). Young children learn through play. They don’t need pages of worksheets and busywork. Preschoolers learn best with playful activity centered around the alphabet, math, literacy, and social skills. And that’s just what you’ll find in The Preschool Journey!
- The book’s layout is simple, accessible, and beautiful. Feeling overwhelmed? This book will put you at ease.
- The printables offer a great variety of learning activities. You’ll find math mats (for counting goldfish crackers or sorting jelly beans, for example), playing cards to practice rhyming, and more. You’ll also find a few traditional worksheets for scissor and pencil practice.
- The book includes many fun and meaningful activities for learning. Check out more sample pages below:
Each lesson plan includes a suggested craft. Crafts that take the shape of a letter are excellent for reinforcing the letter’s shape and sound!
A quality preschool curriculum will keep literacy at the forefront. Each lesson contains a book list related to that letter. Love it!
No worries that the printables will lead to boring seatwork — like these adorable dinosaur clip cards, they’re designed for hands-on learning.
