You’ll want to have some extra ideas on hand to keep them going. Focus on dress up ideas with clothing that is appropriate for the theme, color activities where they can color their own version of the theme.
Divide up into groups and have the kids act out a specific scene regarding the theme. Other hands-on activities can include dance, building things with blocks, legos, lincoln logs and other such props that make it more fun and exciting to do things.
To have some wind-down times, be sure to include some books that you all read together as a class. You could have easy picture books, large print books where you’re teaching the kids the words and more.
You could even have students get up and act out the book as you read it. That’s sure to have them collapsing in giggles when you’re done.
Include some music and songs and you can round out a preschool day very effectively. Students will look forward to your class if they are engaged and find that they are actually having fun while they are learning. It is amazing how well students learn when they think they are just playing.
