I’ve gotten together with a few of my friends to do a co-op preschool for our 3 year olds this year. Luke loves when he gets to put on his backpack and walk over to our neighbors’ houses for school. There’s currently only 3 of us, but we get together with another group that has 4 and do activities as a large group once a month as well as bounce ideas off each other.
We keep it pretty basic—it’s only an hour and a half long and each of us teaches twice a week, rotating every 3 weeks. We do a different letter each week—so far they’ve learned the letter M and A, and this week will be P (and I get to teach!) You may have noticed the picture Luke made for the Letter A on my last post.
This month we will also focus on the primary colors—red, blue and yellow and also on the number 1. Our theme this month is animals because we chose for our combined group activity to go to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point. We’ll actually be going tomorrow, which means I will only have to teach once this week on Friday.
Luke seems to really like it, and I think he is learning some new things as well as learning to interact better with other kids and new situations. We’re excited for this simple opportunity to introduce him to new things and help him learn. It’s so fun to see how excited young kids get about going to school! It’s only a matter of time before they hate going!
