Preschool on the brain

I have decided that I am going to do preschool at home when Hadley turns 3. I had been thinking about this, but really made up my mind when I read my friend Lauren's blog over at Adventures with little man
She will be starting this journey the same time I will so I am excited to be comparing lesson plans with her and see how she is handling it.

Let me just say that it is overwhelming! There is so much to learn and it's hard to narrow down what you want to do weekly. I am currently try to nail down lesson plans for September and I feel myself keep changing my mind because I feel like I think of something better. Right now I plan to start with the alphabet and weekly themes to go along with that. As soon as I get all my ducks in a row and figure out all my activities, printables, crafts, and all that I will post lesson plans here if anybody else is interested in doing this. 

You can also check out my ideas on my preschool Pinterest board. I will be adding to it constantly I'm sure. I am pretty sure my first week I am going to focus on the theme "In the sky" with the letters A-E. Lesson plans to come! EDITED: I have already changed my mind and decided to steer away from themes while focusing on the alphabet so I can give Hadley a broader view at things that start with that letter.


  1. Kara I am so excited that we will be going though this fun and exciting journey together. Two minds think better than one and I am so excited to see your ideas and share mine with you. I know you are going to do great. And don't worry, I was really overwhelmed at first but I think things will fall in place pretty easily. And hey, we have a few months to figure it out. On top of planning birthday parties that is!

    1. Exactly! I know we have 3 months, but I have to think about her party too and my brain is just in overload. Ha!
