You read that title right…I am going to be starting a new series tomorrow. Each Monday for 26 weeks I’m going to be posting lesson plans that are designed to be used by moms with young children at home. I use them with my three-year-old and she loves them. She’s always asking me when we can do more school time and practice our letters.
Each lesson will focus on an individual letter, as well as a subject. For example, A is for Art and B is for Bugs. In the Art lesson your children will learn about both the letter A and various forms of art.
I also tried to really vary the teaching methods and skills taught. At times my daughter has practiced painting, scissors, writing, counting, tracing, and more. This provides variety and keeps the kids interested. Plus, as I remember from my college teaching classes and from when I was a drama teacher, not all students learn the same. So by varying the methods and curriculum, all students are given a chance to learn.
So feel free to use these lessons for your own child. Each lesson only takes about an hour (though you can make it last longer if you wish) and you can use them as often as you like. I often provide links to resources I’ve used, and I also provide some original handouts I’ve created myself. The originals are property of My Decoupaged Life, but are available for use in these lessons. Please don’t reproduce them for your own gain.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
