I haven't really been doing much in the way of preschool for the past couple of months. I don't know if it was the holidays or other things going on in our family (probably a combination of both), but we sort of took a break from all of the planning and themes and prepared activities.
I'm working on a flexible half-day schedule that we will start in January. We're having a lot of fun right now, but I think we both (as well as our house) would benefit from a little more of a schedule. I'm trying to keep it simple, but it's easy to get caught up in the hype. It seems to happen a lot these days - browsing pictures on Facebook, looking at impossibly perfect decorations on Pinterest, reading posts by bloggers who make it all look so easy. It makes you feel like you have to do it all. Like you have something to prove.
Still, it doesn't have to be that hard.
I'm going to do a series of posts this week about simplifying preschool. I'm going to use pictures from the past couple of months during which time I have done virtually no planning. I'll post pictures for a different subject each day.
Monday - Practical Life
Tuesday - Sensorial
Wednesday - Language
Thursday - Mathematics
Even though I do want to get back into a bit of a more regular schedule, it helps to remember that M is learning regardless of what I do! I hope this reminds you to relax and simplify things with your preschooler too. Enjoy this time with them!
