May Lesson Plans: May Flowers Theme

Spring has sprung in Nashville! And it is a welcomed event!! It is so nice to have windows and doors open. We enjoy spending our days outside so this theme fits right in! I will be having Structured Play time outside when ever possible! It is not necessary to think activities, games, crafts, coloring need to be completed inside. Everything is more fun in the sun!

I want to reiterate a few points before the download:
1. My plans are not meant to be completed in any specific order. Each day is different and Structured Play time should be a fun learning experience. Pick an activity or activities that fit the mood of your child for that day.
2. Practice activities more than once because repetition is key to gaining new skills.
3. READ, READ, READ- Read everyday and reread stories to allows your child to 'read' the books themselves. This is the first step in literacy.
4. Walk Away- Try to keep Structured Play time 'fun'. If things get frustrating to you or your child, walk away and pick up where you left off the next day. Remember it is Structured PLAY, you are not preparing for SAT Exams. Enjoy every minute!
I will Post about each activity as we complete them to give further descriptions and pictures.
