I will start posting up lessons within the week, but for starters, here is a little explanation about how I am going to outline all my lessons and plans.

First, I will introduce a weekly theme. There are many important reasons to have themes in education. For the kids, it provides predictability, structure, and also a little variety. Kids need a routine that makes them feel like their lives aren't in chaos, but some predictable variety also spices things up just right.

The themes will include topics such as:

  • Letter of the Week
  • Number of the Week
  • Shape of the Week
  • Color of the Week
  • Food of the Week
  • Animal of the Week
  • Specials and/or National Holidays

Mostly the themes will all be tied in together as well, like:

  • Letter: A
  • Number: 1
  • Food: Apple
  • Animal: Antelope
  • Special: America
Then each day I will outline daily lesson plans that follow along with the weekly themes. Each days will include some lessons from the following learning areas:
  • Gross Motor Skills
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Reading
  • Songs
  • Discovery (i.e. finding objects in your environments)
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Recipes
