Preschoolers are naturally curious and excited to learn. You may be wondering what to teach your preschooler and when. A new year is here with 12 months of learning opportunities. One of the easiest ways to structure your schooling and still have plenty of room for fun is with preschool learning themes by month. Each learning theme gives you a topic to springboard off of. Add in crafts, stories to read, activities or experiments, and maybe even a field trip.
Using Preschool Learning Themes by Month
You may be wondering where to start with preschool curriculum planning. It can be overwhelming to fill a whole year with lessons that are engaging, fun, and educational. This is where themes come in. By planning your month around a few or even one topic, you can be more direct in your lessons and not be looking for inspiration every day or week.
This style of teaching helps tie lessons together in a memorable way. Preschoolers can easily relate to these learning themes. They will be eager to learn more and participate in lessons. Best of all, it will be easier to incorporate play, imagination, and practical skills into your preschool day.
