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!!

With my K4 child I follow her lead.  If she wants to read--we read, if she wants to color--I let her color, if she wants to work on math--that is what we do.  You get my drift.  I let her lead in this area.  If you put her next to her sister she is almost doing what a 1st grader can do minus the handwritting.  Working on her handwritting is like pulling teeth.  Just enjoy doing what she likes to do.  Have fun!!!
