Hi, Im Monica, an Early Childhood Education Certified Teacher. I have a passion for helping other moms and teachers with their preschool at home efforts. Now I teach other moms how to preschool at home with fun preschool activities through my online preschool program: Visual Montessori.
I spent over five years developing a preschool learning curriculum for my two boys and I used the principles of Montessori, and everything I’ve learned about childhood development, to create a preschool learning curriculum based upon the 12 Sensitive Periods for children between the ages of birth and six years old as outlined in Montessori.

How we set up our Preschool at Home
With our morning board set-up, we’re going to re-start our study of the alphabet with a new focus on reading. If your child already knows their ABCs – then you’re right where we are at and this will be a great series of posts for you. If you’d like to see what we did last year including a table set-up for sensory items and activities for little ones for ages 22-40 months please go to the post: Letter J.
How we use the Preschool Circle Time Morning Board
Our routine is to use the morning board two or three times a week with lots of reading every day. The Morning Board helps cover key skills – how to read a calendar, how to tell time, count money, bible verse for the week, shape, color and number for the week. It includes some key life skills as well as basic math skills. I don’t expect any sort of mastery here – I’m just trying to introduce concepts to my little guy. During that time I also read a bible story. I will use various tools on the morning board for the entire year or until my son has mastered the skills.
For a complete list of our morning board printables click here: Morning Board. We’ve completed the alphabet before but the emphasis now is on reading. Hence, you’ll see a focus on increasing vocabulary and sight words in upcoming posts.
Is your Preschooler Ready to Read?
If you would like to assess your preschooler’s readiness in the area of reading, I have a free chart in my post, Advancing Preschool Reading Behaviors. If you like this post, please PIN it on PINTEREST.
Montessori Preschool Lesson Plans
In my post on Montessori Planning I use Montessori guidelines to outline the key areas for focus when working with him. If you’re interested in Montessori, the post includes a planner and organizer to help you get started. I also created a vertical version of a Montessori planning chart for our Morning Board. I’ve attached the vertical versions below. Just click the image for a larger version that you can download and print at home.
I spent some time on Pinterest looking for things that might be good for our letter J activities this week. I pinned everything that looked interesting. My goal is to create a board for each letter of the alphabet. Follow me on Pinterest if you want to get copied on all the resources and ideas that I discover via Pinterest.
Teaching Character through a Preschool at Home
To supplement my plan, I also use God’s Little Explorers. Our letter A coincides with week 3 in GLE. In God’s Little Explorer’s the bible story for the week of letter A study is the story of Adam and Eve. My favorite activity (used to emphasize the story of Adam and Eve) is one where you write “invisible” sins on a white piece of paper using a Q-tip and lemon juice. You let the paper dry throughly and once it’s completely dry you hold it over a lamp or other heat source and as the paper gets warmer the words will appear. You talk with your children about how God could see Adam and Eve’s sin – it wasn’t hidden form Him. Stacie has some wonderful ideas. Click here to learn more about God’s Little Explorers.
