This Week's preschool ideas.

I decided to do a 30 minute preschool with DD1 as soon as DD2 goes down for her morning nap. Well, it only works out if I've already showered. So we'll probably do preschool after lunch today, since my hair is still wet and DD1 is very absorbed in Dragon Tales at the moment!

Here are a few ideas that I am doing to teach the letter C & number 3:

*Make snakes out of play dough and shape them into the letter C & #3.

*Make a C page with pictures of things that start with C. Say the words together and write the words for your little one to see.

*Use a magnifying glass to find the letter C on your cereal box.

*Use play dough to make 3 balls. Count them together.

This week's social skill: Using kind words. Any ideas or hints for helping me with that other than talking about it and practicing? Maybe we can cut out hearts and write nice things to say on them. Or maybe every time she says something nice like "Baby so cute" or "Thank you" we can draw a heart on a poster? Hmmm, I'll have to stew over this one a little longer!

I think little girl would love a "polite party" where you teach the skill, practice it, then have a little tea or princess party. Practice serving each other treats/drinks, offering compliments, saying "please" and "thank you", etc. You could get all dressed up too! I'll send you my lesson plan I use at the school too...
