Little Miss will be starting Preschool! This next year I want to try and set up a little more structure and include her in our school time.
My intention is not to drill numbers, letters, and writing. But I do want to get her in the habit of sitting down with me and following directions and since preschool is supposed to be about playing and having fun I picked a theme I know she will love.
This year we will be studying Disney Princesses! I picked a different princess for each month to focus on. My rough plan is below, but these may end up varying a bit depending on what projects we find and what Little Miss seems to enjoy the most. The most important thing is what sparks her interest.
July : Mulan (China, Fireworks, Tea, Cherry Blossoms)
August: Ariel (Ocean life, Mermaids, Ships, A lot of water play)
September: Snow White (Apples, colors, German fairy tales, the number 7)
October: Cinderella (Pumpkins, Mice, Kindness, Cleaning)
November: Pocahontas (Native Americans, nature, Gold, Rivers)
December: Belle (France, Roses, Gray Stuff cooking, Make our own book)
January: Anna & Elsa (Snow, Ice, Family, Art History, Ice Skating, Snow Men)
February: Jasmine (Tigers, Middle East, Flying Carpets)
March: Rapunzel (learning to braid, Painting, Cooking, Chameleons, Floating lanterns)
April: Tiana (Frogs, Jazz, Roaring Twenties, South, Gumbo, Make our own restaurant)
May: Mirada (Archery, Bears, Tapestries, Castles, Scotland, Tarts)
Check back later and I’ll update this list with links to our month and the projects we did.
