I was teaching my daughter preschool at home before she went to school. I was putting a preschool theme of the month on my page. But, I have since found so many pages with wonderful themes. I thought I would just give you these links and you can see which theme you want to use this month. I will also be leaving the Preschool Archives so you can see past themes of mine.

One of the best things to do when kids are acting up, is to check up on how much individual time the kids have with you. Usually I find that my one on one with the kids has become non-existant. At least once a week I have what the kids call "mommy time." I'll take one child to do what they want to do. It is usually playing Battleship or chess with my son. My daughter likes dancing, playing the piano and doing crafts with me. My husband usually takes one of the kids out on a shopping trip or errand he is running. So the kids get one on one time with each of us.

Where we love is home,
home that our feet may leave,
but not our hearts.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

These are pages of different sites I have found:
