The yellow school bus has started it’s pick-up which means mixing in more formal lessons/activities for those preschoolers spending the day at “Country Fun School”. Most of our learning occurs naturally throughout our daily activities, but I do try to have more school-like activities to help prepare the pre-schoolers for regular classroom work. For now these lessons will happen twice a week for an hour before rest-time. We’ll start off slowly to settle into expectations and this new routine.
Wednesday I introduced our first learning theme – “The Farm”
We played a simple game that involved farm animals, their sounds, and following directions.
Read and sang “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” and Barnyard Banter.
