Community Helpers Preschool Lesson Plans
These preschool lesson plans are full of fun and engaging activities that kept my little one busy all week long. These are amazing because they focus on an entire range of subjects that can last you for an entire week! If your little one is like mine though, you may need to stretch these out even longer. There’s days where we can knock out every activity on the day it’s planned, and other times where we have to go with the flow and modify our schedule a bit. I say all that to let you know you don’t have to feel pressured to get to EVERYTHING everyday. These preschool lesson plans are JAM PACKED and although that’s great for you as a teacher or mom, it can seem overwhelming.
|This is my weekly community helpers preschool theme lesson plan. It’s great for an at a glance look at what activities we will be doing throughout the week.|
Community Helpers Preschool ActivitiesI love when you can find a fun way to incorporate reading skills into lessons. This activity was one of those! You simply cut the stamps and match its initial sound to the correct letter envelope! Easy peasy, with loads of nonstop fun and engagement!toy claw grabber. Then, we did some letter recognition by identifying them on the worksheet and dabbing them with a bingo dauber! Seriousy, so fun!
This was another house FAVORITE! One thing we did during these Community helpers preschool activities is to reinforce numbers with a fun bowling game. I attached the flames to red solo cups and my little one rolled a ball to knocked down the pins. She then worked on number recognition by locating the number on the worksheet and dabbing it with the dauber.
We did so much with this same worksheet and picture cards though. These little number flames were all over my house this passed week. HA! At one point I had these flames taped to our fence. We took out our water guns and my little one squirted the flames as I called out the numbers.
Community Helpers Preschool Crafts
These community helpers preschool activities come with 5 craft ideas to implement during your unit. One craft we enjoyed was this paper bag puppet. Look how stinkin’ cute these are, and it was equally as fun to make. This unit comes with 4 different variations to choose from. Your kids can make a police office, fire fighter, nurse, or mailman!
