Just recently, we decided to switch our 5 year old to a different and better preschool. The only caveat is that they were already full one day a week, so I have to keep him home.
If you remember, one of my New Year’s resolutions was to be more consistent about doing preschool at home with Gregory. Having our 5 year old foster child home one day a week was the perfect excuse I needed to finally got on the ball about this.
Where else to turn but to my trusty side kicks, Pinterest (you can follow my homeschool board here) and the Dollar Store?

Preschool Songs inspired by Create Studio
After we did a few hours of school, we headed to our library for story time. All 3 of my boys loved it. They got some wiggles out by dancing to a song and shaking their noisemakers.
When we were done, we read books and did puzzles in the children’s corner.
All in all, it was a fun schooling day– up until a gigantic meltdown from Gregory in the afternoon. Oh well. No day’s 100% perfect, right?
