Ideas, Ideas, Ideas.

There are soooooo many ideas going on in my head. Seriously, I'm really getting excited about doing the Preschool at home. My mind is probably going to explode with ideas.

What we've been doing so far. I'm really trying to take one day at a time and see what will work. But this is what currently we are doing..

We get "Special Time" which is time I work with the girls each one on one. We trace over a mat that has all the letters on it. Emily can write all the letters, and Hannah can write more then I thought without using the mat. But I think it helps them fine tune the letters.

Then we do some work book pages. Emily and Hannah both have different work books. Hannah's is teaching her the ABC's and also teaching her the numbers (like how to write them). Emily's workbook is focused on sight words. Then with Emily I also do some math worksheets that I find online. I also am using paper cut out bugs to see how far the girls can count on their own.. and everyday I'm going to try and push them a little further. Emily can count pretty much to 100. And Hannah is working on getting through the teens and then she'll probably be able to count to 100.

We are also doing a science project. We are planting three veggies in test tubes and watching them grow.. We will plant a carrot, green onion, and radish. Then I'm planning on having them check it every day and draw what it looks like.

Tomorrow we are also going to start doing a calendar. They will be able to see what day of the week it is, what month, and what the weather looks like outside. This is so that they'll be able to get the concept of like tomorrow and when things happen and such. The girls will be able to take turns putting up either a sun for sunny, or a cloud for rainy or cloudy.. (i didn't find any rain drops yet). So they'll have fun with that.

I'm trying to think of fun crafts... maybe something to build up to Father's Day? I don't know yet. I just have to think more into it.

I also am going to try and have a theme each month (or maybe every three weeks.. because thats how long we can check out books at a time at the library). The first theme is Dinosaurs.. it wasn't the kit that I wanted from the Library.. but I refused to leave without one! :-D

Okay. Time to go be a mom/wife/housecleaner/cook.

  1. YAY! Hey, I have a big ol' set of calendar stuff. It's a PDF file, I think. It has all the weather stuff, and months and numbers, etc. If you're interested.
