Home education tips for a preschool level

Planning homeschooling activities at preschool or for children in preschool shouldn’t be a complicated task because children are eager for knowledge and any day-to-day activity is a learning space for them, but we can also stay calm without searching and investigating That’s why we should go working with them to prepare them further for other types of activities.

And more to search and investigate, it is more important to know the background to our children, their fortresses, their interests, their sues, what they enjoy, what they enjoy, what they imagine… this will be the starting point for the activities and learning spaces that you should provide in preschool home education.

In my own experience the activities with my children between the two and five years of age, in their great majority it has been free play, exploring nature, playing, running, using cubes and building, painting with colors and vinyls, listening to music and dancing, preparing simple recipes with you, sowing seeds, reading and listening to songs, and a wide range of activities that are part of our daily life and in which we can involve them, because children want to participate in everything, because every activity it’s a novelty for them.

play and share

On the other hand, we have daily spaces, in the very wide spaces where we work something more structured, such as counting, summarizing, remaining, teaching vocals and letters, using a world map and seeing a document of a place that is chosen, una manualidad, show the colors in Spanish and in English, the forms, read a book for example of animals and talk with them about the same, learn and other range of activities of fine motor skills.

If you have accounts, many of the activities that are carried out in the space that I call “more formal”, you can also work in the spaces of play and fun; es decir that we should not separate and put a barrier between one and another, because learning is always accompanied by something fun; If the kids don’t enjoy what they’re doing, they’re going to learn.

Take it calmly

As a personal anecdote, when we started with early childhood education at home, he said to my child: “vamos a estudiar?” y he no le gustaba, ponía no tan buena cara, so I decided to change the lenguaje by: ” let’s learn?” and curiously, we had a better attitude and we really had fun and learned at the same time. A simple tan change in the language can make the difference!

Sometimes I listen to a podcast of two people who have been educating at home for many years, and they decide that what children need to learn in this age range or in preschool home education is not more than being sure that their parents are close. , that they provide company, love and security, forge their character and in the soil knowledge that are found in the books.
