Home Preschool

Home Preschool

As discussed previously, my son attends special education preschool five days a week. I  still do some at home preschool stuff with him any ways. For example since there is no school this week due to weather I still feel like there is no reason as to why he can not do something educational. Here is a list of things that we do:

  1. Calendar work- Day of the week and month
  2. Names- Recognition of his name as well as family member’s names
  3. Counting
  4. Name letter of the week, say the sound it makes, say things that start with that letter. We also do a letter activity on Fridays.
  5. Name number of the week and/or do a number mat (number mat depends on his mood that day)
  6. Name shape
  7. Look at sight word of the week
  8. Tracing- Name, shapes, letter, number and sight word.

I use materials from a work book I picked up from Target as well as printouts from Kid Sparkz. This is a wonderful web site that has a ton of themes and learning materials that go with them. I would highly recommend the site if you are a home daycare provider looking to add educational activities and themes for the older kids or you are a parent looking to do at home preschool stuff like me.

I am not an expert by any means so my list of things that I do with my son might not be good or what other people would do with their preschoolers but this is what works for us!
