Eccles. 9:10~

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; Eccles 9:10


One of the most frequently asked questions I get is what to do with little ones while homeschooling. I have found the BEST way is to give them their own "School." All of our younger children look forward to "School Time." I try and incorporate a short Bible Lesson, story time, Letters, Numbers, Songs, etc. Their favorite part though are hands on activities. Here are some we have been working on..

Learning Centers for Preschool Time:

This is so timely for me. One of the things on my summer to do list was to set up some boxes filled with different projects for my little guys to work on during school. So, how do you organize it all? Is it all in separate boxes? Are there certain activities for certain days? I would love more specifics about how you make the learning centers work. Thanks!

That picture of Dr. Wee Babe? Priceless!

And to second thecurryseven, any other logistical details about what works for you in that department would be very welcome reading at this point in the year =).

Why didn't I get to do this at your house a couple weeks ago? :o) This looks like so much fun. I wonder if lil' M would still be interested in this type of learning.

Hi Renee, walknlove. I love the pictures of the centers. I have area set up, but I am curious as to what some of the things are that the little ones are playing with. Could you possible take time to let us all know? Play Doh I can see, and beans, and corn meal. Not sure about some of the rest. I'd love to know more. Thanks. Always needing more ideas as the new school year approaches. I'm not too big on much TV for little ones, so the more hands on ideas, the better. (Hugs) and prayers as you adopt your two new sons.
