One of the great things about preschool schedule is that it is so flexible! You can manipulate the schedule to fit it in during your morning, afternoons, or even before bed. Whatever works best for you and your family. For the preschool years you are only going to be homeschooling for about an 15-30 minutes a day. Your little one’s attention span is short at this age.
You can start teaching things like shapes, colors, ABC’s, counting, and the 5 senses. Short colorful worksheets can help develop fine motor skills and help your child prepare for more formal lessons in the future. You can check out our own Preschool Curriculum Pack here.
Besides teaching the basics you are going to want to add in some fun crafts and activities. I find these sorts of activities to go over better after lunch or snack time. Their bellies are full and they are usually pretty content. This helps them to focus on creativity! Pull out some blank paper and some finger paint and let them have at it! There is no write or wrong here. Just that they are having fun and exploring their creative side.
Bedtime is always a great time for reading! I like to read 2 books for bedtime. It helps them to wind down and relax. It is also a great time for their imaginations to kick in which allows them to really get absorbed into the story.
As always each child will be different, but for preschool your schedule can be very relaxed! Cover some of the basics, get a little creative, and read to them! It really is a fun time for both you and your child!
