preschool curriculum ideas or recs needed

Could you please give me some ideas or recs for preschool? My daughter is turning 3 in Feb and I want to try working with her at home. I am not structured enough to do it on my own, so I would need an outline to follow. Also, hoping it is inexpensive. If you have something to sell, let me know.

Re: preschool curriculum ideas or recs needed

There are several sites out there like 1+1=1 and letteroftheweek, plus a wealth of free printables just by searching free early childhood printables or preschool printables.

I will also shamelessly spam my own stuff. I have 2 different sets of early childhood theme packs that have age appropriate activities on various themes. I'll sell it quite a bit cheaper than listed if you want any kind of quantity. It's just sitting in my back room and I'd like to get rid of it. I used it with my in-home daycare, but now that I have babies, I really have no need for nearly as much as I once did.

I second the printables, we use them for unit studies, I just match them up with crafts and books from the library, that sort of thing. Super easy!

Re: preschool curriculum ideas or recs needed

i started with DD at the same time. at that age, you can get EVERYTHING online for free. I would do a Letter-A-Day and would google preschool activities for different games, stories, printable for that letter. some great websites for us were:

sproutonline.com

Re: preschool curriculum ideas or recs needed

We do something very simiar to this link (below). You can add or change subjects to this if you'd like, but my daughter loves moving the littler girl on the board when subjects change. I had her draw the girl herself. Activity time can be a wide sectrum of things such as science, art, geography. I mix it up each day. Keep each subject short enough to keep her attention.

homeschoolshare.com has great unit studies for that age group. Pick a story from their list, print out the necessary sheets and do as much or as little as you want. Worked great for us while we were trying to choose a curriculum. I still go back to it occasionally.
