Preschool Lesson Plans Based on Books

One of my very favorite ways to teach homeschool preschool is with simple preschool lesson plans based on books. I’m slightly obsessed with children’s literature and putting together lesson plans based around those books. Children’s books are the kind of books that tend to stick with you for a lifetime. I’ll never forget the first time I heard, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” I was in kindergarten. My class wasn’t in our regular classroom. I think we were in a music room because we were sitting on risers. I LOVED story time, and I loved sitting there and listening to that story. That was one of the very first books I ever bought my first child. It was such a well loved book that it has completely fallen apart and I really need to buy a new one for my younger children.

Now that I teach my own children, I love creating preschool lesson plans based on books. I’ve made several, and have even made them so that you can use them, too!

Preschool book theme lesson plans are an amazing way to teach preschoolers about books, along with lots of other fun preschool activities!

We all know reading aloud to our children is important. It helps them learn language skills, sparks their imaginations, increases their vocabulary, and leads to a love of reading. I always tell my kids that once they learn to read they can learn anything they want.

When we expand on a favorite story, we are only building a love of that story. I do not believe in busy work for little children. My preschool lesson plans offer children a way to use their imaginations through art, build their fine and gross motor skills, and practice their alphabet and numbers.
