What kind of schedules have you lovely women done for pre-school? My daughter is 2.5 and already knows her colors and shapes. We are working on letter's and numbers. Also, do you have any ideas for fun activities and games we could do to help her with learning?

 

 

Thank You to Everyone that has replied! I really appreciate the input!!

Well, I don't really have a schedule for my 3 yr. old. We do when she is interested and what she likes. She makes it more fun for me with her enthusiasim and excitement more than the other way around.  She just seems to bubble with these all the time.  We just play and I will use some of her bigger siblings school things to help make her feel like she is doing just like them. For her, that is important. She loves to feel like she is being older than she is. You know, feel more grown up.  :)

For the most part I went with the flow, as if the child isn't 'in the mood' then there was nothing I could do..lol.. But I had set a schedule of no tv's or games, after breakfast for 1 hour. That was I knew they were usually not tired, but not hopped up with energy either. It worked for us. Sometimes we would just have quiet story time, sometimes we would have full on school.

 When my dd was that age we did flashcards and sang lots of fun songs!  I also read so many books to her every day :-)

 I really do not have a schedule for them other than circle time every morning.  I am awaiting curriculum and then I will probably do a short lesson each day in between helping thier sisters.  Right now the have educational toys I bring out a few at a time for them to play with and they watch educational dvds when they get bored.

I was told work on patterns,bead work , scissors . You can help them make lines, circles, x's and crosses to help them with their writing skills. Circle time , playdough ,painting, singing songs and working on there last names. We also go to online free games like abcya.com or nickjr.com and baking. That's what I've been doing with my dd. Good luck.

We have a list of things to do each week, but no schedule for my prek. I will do story/calendar/weather time first thing after breakfast, but then fit everything else in around my second grader.

She loves to jump in and do stuff with my kindergartener
