Teaching Preschool Tips

- If you have a play kitchen, use the pretend food to teach colors. Play restaurant. You be the customer and ask your little one to bring you a red tomato, green lettuce, or yellow cheese. Talk about how the tomato is round, or like a ball or sphere, and that the cheese is in the shape of a square.
- Get messy! Use glue, string, macaroni noodles, cotton balls, pompoms, popsicle sticks, and beans to make letters or numbers on construction paper or cardstock.
- Use dry erase boards to practice drawing different shapes.
- Let your child help make bread or biscuit dough into shapes, letters, or numbers. Let your preschooler help you put them on a pan and bake them. It will make for a delicious learning experience.
- Read…A LOT! Studies have shown that children who are read to regularly have a larger vocabulary. This can be an indicator of later academic success. READ TO YOUR BABIES, TODDLERS, AND PRESCHOOLERS!
- Above all, have fun. Our children are only small once and it doesn’t last very long. Enjoy them!
BONUS TIP — Make teaching sessions short and sweet. Keep in mind a 4-year-old’s attention span is only about 16 minutes. This will vary depending on if they are enjoying the activity or not.
