Preschool teachers and parents of preschoolers can use traditional and not so traditional topics to develop their curriculum. Preschool themes are fun, interesting topics that draw young children into learning. They are the basis of the activities you create for art, science, math, dramatic play, reading, writing, circle time and more!
The goal of choosing a theme is not, necessarily, to turn preschoolers into expert on that theme. For example, although some children may learn much about the names of dinosaurs, your goal in choosing dinosaurs as a theme is not to turn your children into paleontologists! The goal is to excite and invite them into the activities through this fun theme. You can know more about preschools lesson plans and themes by looking up to http://www.lemanmanhattan.org/.
Your students or children can learn how to sort colors, shades of colors, sizes, and more by providing them with different colors and sizes of dinosaurs. They will develop their fine motor skills (small muscles in their hands) by manipulating play dough while they make a volcano. They will develop their gross motor skills (large body muscles) by playing a game that requires them to jump from one dinosaur footprint to another. They will learn the math concepts of more and less by reviewing a chart you keep that shows each child's favorite dinosaur.
