Lesson Plans

I was a preschool teacher for several years before becoming a mothers, and   my educational philosophy for preschool is very simple; it revolves around a lot of reading and a lot of hands on experience.

Preschool Community Helpers Unit
We read a bunch of books about our favorite community helpers (books lists on posts), and went on a lot of field trips.  I added a few activities and words as we went, but do not make it harder than it needs to be.  Five to ten minutes of structured activity every other day is about all you need in preschool.

  1. Introduction to Community Helpers; Our Neighborhood
  2. Farmers- In the Field
  3.  Farmers- In the Orchard
  4. Dairy Farmers
  5. Fire Fighters
  6. Garbage Collectors
  7. Nurses and Doctors
