Pre-K Lesson Plans

This is my first time making my own lesson plan and I would love to share it!  Please review it and leave feedback :)

This lesson plan is aimed for boys ages 3-4.  It can be altered to girls but this coming year I will only have boys so you will not see girly things in the themes.

I am planning for a 5 day lesson plan.  These links only document 4 days.  If I find the time I will try to upload the 5th days lesson. I have them handwritten in my binder right now.

There is an activity book I am using for the lesson plan as well that has handwriting practice in it and a few activity pages that correlate to the theme.  This can be easily substituted for any other handwriting activity or activity book that has A-Z and 1-10 practice in it.

Please keep in mind these are my first drafts and I just want to share the ideas for anyone who is looking.  I pencil in edits all the time and don't remind myself to review the hand motions on the lesson plan because we use the motion every time we say the letter, therefore we are doing it a lot during the week.

I will be adding links to each week category as the year goes on probably twice a week.
I counted out the weeks so that week 9 falls on the week of Halloween.

The week before Halloween I will be on a Honeymoon and will not be doing preschool that week but plan to jump right back in on my return.

Lessons below are geared for boys age 5.  Again I didn't have a girl in this preschool year but Doll Dragon (my daughter) did join in some of the activities and enjoyed them.

In these lesson plans we focused more on the theme then the letter.  At this point, age 5, Little Dragon had his letters figured out.

We worked on being ready for Kindergarten.  Numbers 11-20, shape recognition, uppercase/lowercase, and reading.

Teeth Craft

This craft went with our meat eater unit you can see here

I was having a difficult time thinking of activities for meat eaters.  I didn't want the sole focus to be on dinosaurs because carnivores and herbivores is a way to categorize many animals today. But everything I was running into was dinosaur related. 
Finally I found this craft! 
Materials: 

paper template of a carnivore and herbivore (I drew a hippo and t-rex head outline) page of teethscissorsgluemarkers







Little Dragon cut out the heads and then the mouth pieces. 
Then he cut out the teeth and glued them inside the mouth
To finish it he drew eyes on the head and a tongue on the inside of the mouth. 

Little Dragon was very excited to see the finished animals and open their mouths to look at their teeth.

















We wrote what the animal was on the inside


This was a fun easy craft that helps identify the difference in the teeth between carnivore and herbivore.  It is a visual reference that can be used again and again.  It can also be used for…

Paint Squirt Gun Fight

I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to do this activity ever since I saw a post about painting with squirt guns.

Paint squirt gun fight!  And it was AMAZING! 
I first bought an 8 pack of large boys white t-shirts.  I wanted the shirts to fit all of the kids and I wanted them to be able to save the shirts for the future. The 8 pack was perfect.
I filled the water guns up with paint and a pinch of water.  Each gun had a different color so we could determine a 'winner'. 
I squirted each 'player' with their color first.  So they knew their color and to demonstrate where to aim. 


Talking about the aim was very important.  All of the kids involved were 4 and above.  Aim had to be in the tummy or the back.  No faces, bottoms, heads/hair, or legs. We didn't want paint in eyes, noses, or mouths. The other places would be more difficult to clean and giving two aiming places was simple.����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������…

Elephant Faces

Elephant Faces (masks)
We used: 


Three paper platesPaint or markersPaint brushesStaplerScissorsYarnFirst paint the bottom of the paper plate.  While the kids painted I cut the other paper plate in half for the ears. Using the third plate I cut out the textured part of the plate to make the trunks.  
Paint (or color) the rest of the pieces. 
Staple them together to make an elephant.
Cut out small holes for eyes and small holes behind the ears to attach the yarn.

Now that the lesson is over I have the masks hanging in the playroom.  They make a neat decoration.
