List of 3 Year Old Homeschool Plans Week 5

We have made it to 3 year old homeschool plans: week 5!  This week the Bible Story is about Noah and the ark that God told him to build.  This is a very fun story for most kids, I think.  It will hopefully be fun for you to teach.

We are also learning the letter Bb and the number 3 this week.

Hopefully Jessica will be able to get some teaching done next week–week 5.  We are on Hurricane Irma watch right now.  This hurricane is crazy!  We are praying that the hurricane will not come to Charleston, SC.  If it does come here, homeschooling definitely will not be a priority, but it might be good for keeping busy.  We shall see.

If you are doing 3 year old homeschool with us, have a great week!

This is review week!  If you are doing 3 year old homeschool, how is it going?  Yesterday, Jessica said that Hadley is acting like she doesn’t know the colors and numbers that she learned the past few weeks.  I told her I am not sure that she is not playing around–pretending that she doesn’t know them because that is not what she wants to do.

She frequently knows we are asking her questions and expecting certain responses.  She likes to not give the response that she knows that person wants.  For example:  If I ask her, “who loves you?”, she knows I want her to say, “Grammy”.  She will choose to say, “Poppy” or “Mommy” or “G”, looking for me to respond in shock or whatever…

We are constantly having to try to figure out how to outsmart a 3 year old!!  How do you teach when they don’t want to cooperate?  You have to get very creative!   Instead of asking for the blue blocks, you may say, “I wonder how fast you can put all of the blue blocks in the bucket”.  The focus goes to “how fast” rather than “blue blocks”.  🙂

I would love to hear your creative ways of teaching in the comments below!

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.  🙂
