Postby anna.hettick » Wed Sep 16, 2009 9:17 pm

Just wanting some ideas for Pre-K scheduling? We're trying to figure out what works with us so I wanted to see some others ideas. Also does anyone have or know where I can find pre-k lesson plans?

Have you checked out ? Lots of good ideas there. There's also a book called Before Five In a Row that has themed weeks for littles - each week a book is read 5 times, once each day, with activities to go along with.

I like the 5 a day book idea. I have skimmed through the program before, and it can be done without the book. We do them quite often, by just taking a book and doing something every day that goes along with it.

Lapbook lessons also has an alphabuggy letter of the week program. We finished the program and my boys loved it~!

I'm a former teacher and lesson planning was one of my favorite thins to do. If you are looking for lesson plan ideas, I post all my lesson plans on my blog h It gives specific leeson plans complete with materials, etc so they are easy to follow,
When it comes to scheduling keep in mind a few things:
1. Allow approximately one minute per year for age of child. If child is four plana four minute activity. I like my lessons in each subject o be short. Scheduling in the morning is good because children learn best in the morning. I
2. COnsistency. WHen your child knows it's coming and you know it's coming it;s easier to make it happen. This is something I need to work on because I have a baby which means my timing is sometimes sporadic. I love sharing, so if you hsve any questions please let me know!

I taught in a preschool for 6 months. We had activities scheduled in approximately 20 - 30 minute blocks of time. That seemed to work well. I did the same with my homeschooled kids when they were that age. We did an activity for 15-30 minutes, then went to a different activity.

Here are some websites with Preschool lessons. ... hool.shtml

I believe nursery rhymes is a great way to introduce students to rhyming and get your students excited about learning.
