It occurred to me recently that I never officially introduced my other blog on this site. Cheerful Learning is all about ways to teach and interact with your favorite preschooler, whether that’s your child, grandchild, niece/nephew, or friend. It’s also helpful for Bible class teachers, preschool teachers, and child care providers looking for fresh, new ideas.
For those who haven’t visited yet, here’s an introduction to what you’ll see if you stop by Cheerful Learning:
There are fun Storybook Activities (snacks, games, crafts, and more) from children’s books like Snowmen at Night…
There are LOTS of activities to go along with Bible stories such as The Tower of Babel…
…and Noah’s Ark…
…and The Rainbow Promise.
I’ll also be posting the fun activities we did to learn the letters and their sounds, including games, crafts, snacks, and much more. There are holiday activities (Valentine’s Day coming soon!) and ideas for movement/PE, visual discrimination, and fine motor skills practice.
I hope that, if you haven’t yet, you’ll come on over to Cheerful Learning to see what all the fun is about! And when you do, be sure to first check out the pages About Us, Our Story, and About Our Curriculum ; they’ll fill you in on how we do things in our preschool program, and why.
Finally, if you are considering doing preschool activities with a child you love—either as their sole preschool experience or as a supplement to what they’re learning elsewhere—you may want to read through Should We “Do Preschool” at Home? and What Do I Need?, both under Getting Started.
I hope those of you who have preschoolers will enjoy Cheerful Learning and that the ideas I post there will help you make the most of your time with your child, by eliminating the hours of planning and preparation you’d spend coming up with your own curriculum.
