how to prep him for preschool....?

my son is 2 1/2 and I would like to start prepping him for what is ahead even though it might not be till next year. He's already pretty smart learning his numbers, colors, shapes, etc.....but he has SO OOOOO much energy and no attention span we find it extremely difficult to teach him anything more then he already knows. I found that when he watches Blue's Clues....he learns a few new things like the names of new objects, or blue skies is the newest. any there a certain routine we should do to get him learning better and practicing preschool habits? im confused on what to do next. (he's not potty trained i know he needs to be in order to go to school) should i play "school" with him daily?

  • I didn't do anything to prep my kids for preschool... they just went. My DD leaned everything she needed to knowf for kindergarten, and my DS is in his pre-k year and knows all his colors, right from left, etc... all the stuff he needs to know. I don't think you need to prep them, that's what pre-school does... prep them for Kindergarten.
