heathertup Posted February 25, 2012 Share Posted February 25, 2012 (edited) I apologize in advance if this question has been asked already, but I am new to this group and so it's new to me. :001_smile: I plan to teach a pre-school homeschool co-op class next fall that is geared for kids ages 3-5, one hour long. I don't plan to have more than 11 kids and will be teaching in a classroom that is large enough to hold a table they sit around and a place to sit for circle time. I have not yet chosen a subject/topic for my class and am open to just about anything. Though there is a lot of great stuff out there on the internet, I haven't yet found anything that I still don't have to spend a fair amount of time putting together a "lesson." Am I missing something? This last year I have been reading a book and planning a short lesson around the book. Our hour usually ends with some sort of art project that typically involves coloring, cutting, or pasting. Though there is a lot out there (like Five in a Row and Story Stretchers), I feel like I am still spending a ton of time each week coming up with what we're going to do. For those of you who have taught preschool, is there anything out there that you feel works well for groups in a limited space setting, where you don't feel as though you're "inventing the wheel" every week? Then again, am I just being unrealistic about not having/wanting to spend a lot of time in preschool prep time? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
