Homeschooling a preschooler, does anyone know of any good preschool lesson plan sites?

My preschooler is still a little apprehensive about going into preschool, and I am looking for some sites that I can obtain information pertaining to an adequate preschool curriculum, any advice?

  • well I'm homeschooling my preschooler and we are staying away from workbooks. I think those will stunt their learning actually. I love teaching and I just make up my own with things that are around or even things we are interested in and follow where he is at. Some activities that we do are making things, like play dough, ice cream, we cook, we read, we play eye spy games, color, paint, glue, stickers etc. sing, go on feild trips (even if its to the park lol), going for walks is educational because we talk about all the things we see, play games outside like soccer or watering the plants, he helps me take care of our garden, Even going to the store is an educational experience. I found some websites that I liked: http://fun.familyeducation.com/preschool/early-learning/33390.html?detoured=1

    So I hope this helps and gives you some ideas... don't stress too much about it

  • We worked alot with flash cards as far as letters go, I made up a fun game where I would set out four random letters and say something like JUMP on J, DANCE on D, etc. and also spread them out and sang the ABCs as we put them in the correct order. Once we mastered what the letters looked like we moved on to workbooks and printouts so she could learn how to write them. Now that we are beyond that we are on starfall.com and working with other print outs, videos, and cds learning sounds and practicing reading/recognizing words we already know. I know this seems silly but you can also print out simple words and put them around the house. Sink, door, couch, bed, etc. I think it helps for them to have a couple different ways of learning. Ultimately all of these avenues will help, with letters at least!!

  • Theres not much in the way of lesson plans, but for some science/art projects you should try www.looledo.com, you can include some science in the building of the boats, planes, mini grenhouse, etc. Good luck!
