As you may know Princess Mimi is enrolled in a two-day preschool program. Tom-Tom was going once a week but I had to pull him out for the remainder of the year (doctor's orders).
Over the past few days, I've been thinking about the summer and how to keep the kids "learning" while not in preschool.
I began searching online and came across this great FREE curriculum for preschoolers aged 2 to 4: http://www.letteroftheweek.com/Preparatory_Outline.html. This particular program that I am interested in is 26-weeks long.
Well I figured out if I started Tom-Tom now, we'd finish up right about the time school starts up in the Fall. Of course, I'll go ahead and include Princess Mimi in the fun, too. The author/creator has everything completely laid out and so organized. She even links to free coloring pages on the internet. (It's amazing!)
I am thinking it will take no more than 30 minutes every Sunday evening to print out the lessons & prepare, and about 20 to 30 minutes each day to actually teach. (I do work in the office each Wednesday, which is alphabet day, but I can print coloring sheets for the sitter and we can chat in the car about the letter).
So I ran to the store on Friday and picked up a bulletin board to hang in Tom-Tom's room. Each week I can put the letter, number, shape or color on the board for him to look at!
