List of 3 Year Old Homeschool Plans Week 3

 

This is week 3 plans for 3 year old homeschool for Hadley!  I’m writing this as Jessica is beginning her 2nd week of homeschooling Hadley.  Jessica said that Hadley thinks that she is supposed to be the teacher, so I suggested that she have Hadley read to her baby dolls after she reads to Hadley.  She can have Hadley tell the Bible story to her dolls after she tells Hadley the story.  We’ll see if that idea works.  Hadley really enjoys mothering her baby dolls, so she may participate.

It really can be a challenge at times trying to get children to do what you want them to do.  I think it is a challenge at every age–the challenges just change.

If you are beginning homeschooling your 3 year old, please leave me a comment below letting me know how it is going at your house.  Is everything going exactly as planned?

Oh what fun three year olds are!  I am preparing this lesson for next week.  Hadley came to see us for a little while today so her mom could go to an appointment.  Her Boz Colors and Shapes video came in the mail yesterday, so I thought Hadley and I would sit down and watch it while she was here.  🙂  She was not interested in sitting down and watching a movie.  Hadley was ready to play.  I tried to convince her to watch it with me, but she got upset that I was interrupting her play time.

Then I remembered reading about not making teaching something they hate.  I can teach while she’s playing without her even realizing I am teaching.  We can talk to her about the shapes of her toys.  I can also talk about the colors of her toys.  We can look at and read books without her realizing my need to teach her.  🙂 I played the video while she was playing.  Every now and then she would look at it and she would even repeat what they said.  She occasionally would sing a song they were singing.

List of 3 Year Old Homeschool Plans Week 1

This list of 3 year old homeschool plans: week 1 begins a new adventure for me. My step-daughter, mom of my 3 year old granddaughter, works Saturday through Tuesday and is off Wednesday through Friday. Since she only needs childcare for Monday and Tuesday, my granddaughter doesn’t go to daycare.  Since she doesn’t go to daycare, someone needs to begin teaching and preparing her for school. Jessica, my step-daughter, has Wednesday through Friday off, so I asked her if I prepared lesson plans for her, would she want to homeschool Hadley, my granddaughter. She said she would like to, so we are beginning this new adventure.

List of Pretend Play Housekeeping Toys

If you have a toddler, you may be looking for a list of pretend play housekeeping toys.  Toddlers love to help.  They love to do what we do.  They love to pull out our brooms, dustpans, mops, buckets, etc.  Unfortunately ours are much too big for them to successfully maneuver.  They need to have their own housekeeping toys that are just their size so that they can help us clean.  🙂

My 2 year old granddaughter is so busy.  If you have a busy 2 year old, you are probably looking for something to occupy their attention.  It is very interesting.  What interests one 2 year old a lot may not interest another 2 year old at all.  No wonder there are so many toys to choose from.

List of Thanksgiving Board Books

It is November and Thanksgiving is almost here.  I love reading children’s books with the kids.  My granddaughter doesn’t sit still long enought to read too many books…or even finish a book sometimes.  She does pull them out and look at them, though, quite often.  Of course, I think she has more fun just pulling the books out and spreading them out.  The life of living with a toddler can be crazy at times!
