Day 2 of the Home Preschool Jump Start Special Training
Yesterday you mapped out a weekly schedule that includes blocks of time for home preschool.
Within each of those blocks of home preschool time you’ll want a general routine to guide your learning. Today we’ll be creating a home preschool routine that you and your kids love.
Today’s goal: Design a home preschool routine that meets your child’s home preschool needs and your personal style.
1) Print the Home Preschool Routine Components worksheet.
2) Complete the Home Preschool Routine Components worksheet by:
a. Selecting the activities you will include DAILY in your home preschool routine.
b. Adding any DAILY components that you want to incorporate.
c. Selecting the activities you will include WEEKLY in your home preschool routine.
d. Adding any WEEKLY components that you want to incorporate.
3) The amount of structure you add to your home preschool time will vary depending on your personal home preschool philosophy. Decide whether you want to assign individual components to specific days in your weekly schedule or whether you want to follow more of a checklist approach and just select activities daily without a set plan.
4) If you will be following a specific routine instead of using the checklist approach start to draft out a flow to your home preschool blocks of time on the weekly schedule. Consider what order you’d like to do them in and generally how much time you want to spend on each component.
5) Tomorrow we’ll take a look at some different lesson plan options and choose one that aligns with the vision you have for your home preschool routine.
