Easy to use homeschool preschool activities. All moms worry about what they are going to teach their homeschoolers and if it is enough. Let me assure you that if you sit down with a designated time each day don’t work on letter of the week activities it will be a great foundation.
Here are a few fun activities to try;
Homeschool Preschool Letter E Drawing
First, in our homeschool preschool we always started out our learning week drawing, or printing our letter of the week. In this case, it is the letter E. We did this to have a daily review of the letter we were working on, and to help me set up activities that surrounded it.
Make the Weekly Letter With Food
Next, using the letter E drawing, we would use raisins, cheerios, or other small snack food to copy the letter E. I would have this activities happen closer to snack time and that made it easier to discuss the letter e, words that sounded like letter E and go over the long E sound.
Letter E Sensory Bin or Water Beads
Each week, I tried to be creative with my sensory bin and keep it interesting. Some weeks I used a theme that related to the letter of the week, or I used toys and objects that related to the letter of the week. Switching it up kept or homeschool preschool fun.
Letter E Homeschool Preschool Baking Day
Baking with a preschooler is fun. They absolutely love the attention and feel so important. To prepare for this day, I used baking tools that were made for small hands and shopped the dollar tree for easy to use bowls, spoons and whisks. This made my preschooler feel like this baking day was special. I kept all of the baking utensils in a drawer he could reach.
Likewise, as I made sure that we had preschool appropriate baking utensils, the food was also at a preschool level. Since we were learning the letter E in our homeschool preschool the food selection revolved around that letter.
Some food examples would be: eggs, eggplant, egg salad, Eggo waffles, English pudding and Elephant Ears.
All of these require parental guidance and help, but involve a lot of fun and bonding time.
Craft and Eagle
In the past I have printed out an eagle and let my homeschool preschooler color and cut out the eagle. It won’t be perfect but they enjoy it. Also, I take the opportunity at this point to point out the bald eagle is our national bird and it protected.
Homeschool preschool is an opportunity to learn at a different pace and dozens the door for moms to be creative in the educational content. Have fun as you teach your preschooler and utilize what you have.
