Before getting started on our lessons, you should know a few things. Here’s three tips for getting started!
Doing multiple lessons and activities a day can get messy in a hurry, so keeping your supplies organized and easily accessible is crucial. I was able to accomplish this by buying a crate to store my supplies. My cute little box holds all my basic supplies: pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, glue, and paintbrushes. Believe me, having all the little trinkets needed for your next lesson tucked away nice and neat in a little box will make the task much more enjoyable!setup home preschool
Establish A Routine

Let’s talk about developing a routine that will allow your Lil’ to get the most out of the lessons. Children thrive with routines.

Our routine starts after nap. We read a book right after she wakes up so she can wake up in a relaxed setting. Then we mosey over to the dining room table and do two activities. My daughter LOVES painting so if one activity involves painting, I make it the second activity of the day because she could spend an hour painting.

There will be times when your Lil’ just isn’t going to be interested. When this happens, do not force them to do the lesson. Just move on. No activity is worth making your Lil’ reluctant to learn new things and there will plenty more opportunities to practice the skill since we go over the same concepts many times throughout the months.

Be Prepared

It’s time to prepare the more specific items needed for the lessons. While my Lil’ naps, I print out any templates I need for the day and take out any other supplies needed for the day’s activities. I also cut out anything that requires cutting because my Lil’ is not yet ready to cut. I prep everything I can while she is asleep.

My Pro Parent Package lets you download and print all the templates at once so you don’t have to go searching for each individual lesson. It saves you time and energy, which I know parents are always in short supply of…
