Hat starts with........H

My soon-to-be four year old and I have been learning a new letter each week during our almost daily preschool session (about 30 min to 1 hour). We also do art projects and brush up on our shapes and colors. It is fun and he looks forward to it most of the time. He has asked once "may I be excused", which only made me smile and realize maybe I should make our little "school sessions" more exciting.

This week it is the Happy Hippo letter H! I use a Preschool Workbook by Mead, which has worksheets for letters, sounds, colors, shapes, sizes, art, early math, and more. Today after we practiced writing our Hs, I brought a bag full of different Hats and let him try them on and look into a small mirror, he thought is was Hilarious. For our art project, we made a chef Hat and he painted a pizza that I drew on cardstock (I later thought a hamburger would have been a better choice afterall it starts withhhh ____).

Leah really should be writing this post, she is the school teacher of the family and has done some really terrific preschool sessions with her daughter and cousins(my son included). She is currently tending to a new beautiful baby girl who decided to come a month early. They are both doing wonderful. Since she is a tad busy, here are a few things I have learned.

1. Prepare yourself ahead of time, pick out worksheet and gather supplies before you begin. I do some brainstorming the night before.

2. Choose the best time of the day, mornings seem to be the best time for him and I try to do it while my baby( who is almost one now, wowzers!) is taking a nap. If he is awake he is a good marker snatcher.

3. Break up your activities, move around the room if possible for different activities.

4. Review, review, review. I might ask him, "Ok, before we start painting can you tell me what letter we are learning?"

5. Be flexible and don't stress over it!

Our SNOW DAY "no preschool" haha!
We did tromp the letter G in the snow and make snow angels in it.

Ok you super MOMS and other awesome ladies and gents. Share with us your ideas for working with the kiddos, wee ones, rugrats...you get the idea. We want to hear!!!!!!
