Strawberry Days at the Olsen Home

Today was strawberry day at the Olsen home. We learned about strawberries, what color they are, how they taste, what we can make with them, and we even sat on a strawberry blanket.

I decided that Zoey needs more structure in her days. Although she is a really good girl almost all the time, I feel like I've taken advantage of that and consequently forget that she needs to have more interaction with things besides her toys. So, I want to start a sort of preschool time that I do with her each day. I want to have some sort of a lesson/theme. Yesterday we learned about Zoey's name and how to spell it. Today was strawberries of course. Not sure how the rest will go, but I feel better knowing she learned something during the day. I would LOVE your suggestions on more fun lessons I can do.

So Cute and So Fun!! She is getting so OLD, I can't believe it. I can't wait to see her again. I know Mandy has a whole bin she made up of Preschool lessons. You should ask her if you can look through it sometime.

I do a preschool co-op with a few other mom's and it's so fun! The kids are 4 though, so I don't think you want to venture into that yet. Recently we've done Dr. Suess, fruits and veggies, feelings, nursery rhymes, 5 senses, farm animals. Just search free preschool lessons and you'll find all sorts of good stuff.
