Happy and Sad Heart Puppets Directions:

Print out the happy and sad heart puppet file onto pink paper, there is one heart in there and use it as a pattern in cutting out two hearts from pink cardstock paper for each child in your group.

Have the children glue on two googley eyes and pom–pom noses onto their 2 puppets and then have them draw a smile on one heart and a frown on the other heart.

Or have the children draw on a face on their puppets instead of gluing on googley eyes and pom–pom noses.

Then have them attach the happy and sad hearts to jumbo craft sticks to make happy and sad heart puppets.

Young Preschoolers – If you have a lot of younger preschoolers or children who still put things in their mouths then you should have them glue their heart puppets onto toilet paper rolls instead of the craft sticks.

Preschool Curriculum Program

Our preschool curriculum program is geared towards children 2.5 up to 5 years old. Our curriculum is aimed at teaching the children their shapes, colors, upper and lower case alphabet and numbers, learning to tell time, learning a few beginning sounds, simple science activities and so much more. Children will be using glue, paint and working on learning how to cut, trace, tell time plus work on pre math, pre reading, and science. Some of the simple science projects would be sorting fruits and vegetables, growing grass, watching an ant farm and so many other exciting activities!!

Our todder curriculum program is available for every month of the year. Our toddler themes are geared towards children 16 months to about 2.5 years. Our toddler program provides lessons on teaching the toddlers their colors, shapes, numbers up to 10, and some of their alphabet. These lessons are for children beginning to paint and glue. We also provide the words to songs/finger rhymes along with other fun activities. Our toddler curriculum is sold seperately, please click here to view our toddler program.

How Our Program Started. We decided to develop a toddler/preschool curriculum program because we couldn't find one that we liked. We have worked very hard at developing a good toddler/ preschool curriculum program. I bought several books on Preschool Themes and even tried a few programs that delivered every thing to your doorstep. My problem was that became expensive and the books I purchased were not quite what I was looking for. I would go through the whole book only to use one or two activities. I was determined to have a Great Toddler/Preschool Program. I have taken several classes on creating your own curriculum and have learned a lot of new ways to teach children. So I finally decided it was time to come up with my own curriculum. I find my program works really well with my home daycare but all the activities will work for a larger daycare setting or preschool or even for Mom who is lucky enough to be home with her child. All children need daily stimulation and my program provides a lot of fun interesting activities. We hope you enjoy the curriculum as much as we enjoyed putting this program together.

Getting Ready For School. We have found that when children are having fun and enjoy what they are doing, they learn quickly, which is what our program is all about, teaching the children through fun activities. Our program is like providing a mini nursery school and preschool program in your own home. Parents like the idea that their child is having fun participating in daily activities, art projects, songs, finger plays and games, which is teaching them and getting them ready for school.

Weather Chart

Weather Chart

My preschool curriculum provides a circle time, art time, learning time and a special activity for five days per week. We start our morning program off each day with circle time. To begin our circle time, we discuss with the children the weather outside. We have the children look out the window and then we ask them "what is the weather outside?"If you have a lot of younger children they may not be able to answer correctly, then we give them hints; such as, (Is the sky white or blue?) if its white does anyone know what that means? (It’s cloudy) "Is it raining outside?" "Is snowing outside?""Is it cloudy outside?""Is it windy outside?"We have a weather chart and each day we have one of the children move the arrow to the correct weather for that day. The weather chart is included in the toddler or preschool curriculum.

Next we focus on the calendar. I will ask the children "Does anyone know what day it is?" If no one knows what day it is, I will tell them, "Today Is Thursday."I made a felt calendar with numbers that have Velcro on their backs to stick to the calendar. The children take turns putting up the numbers each day to show that days date. The Toddlers are too young to understand what a calendar is but they still have fun sticking up the numbers. Our calendar is in my dining room and the children need to climb up into a chair to be able to reach the calendar to put on the numbers. I always stand nearby when they are climbing onto the chair incase they start to fall. After the number for the day is put up, we start at number one, on the calendar and I have the children count with me, to the new date that we just placed onto the calendar. As they say the numbers I point to the numbers on the calendar to help to teach them their numbers.

Circle Time – We start our Toddler / or Preschool Program off each day with circle time. We try to get all the children to sit together in a circle on the floor. We never force any child to participate, but we do try to encourage participation. You will find in the daily lessons which activity to do each morning for circle time. Our circle time activities could be a talk or discussion but usually involves a fun activity such as a learning activity, games, singing songs, hearing a story, etc.

Fun Way To Learn – We have found a lot of fun ways to help the children to learn while they’re having fun. After out circle time activity we focus on the calendar. I made a Velcro one with Velcro numbers. The children take turns putting the numbers up each day. Toddlers are too young to understand what a calendar is but they still have fun sticking up the numbers and singing our seven days of the week song. All the older toddlers can sing most of it.

Seven Days Of The Week Song

There are seven days in the week, seven days in the week. There are seven days in the week. "Hold up 7 fingers"

And I know them all. "Point to self"

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Saturday is the last one. Saturday ends the week. "Teacher will point to each day on the calendar"

Repeat song.

Singing Songs And Reciting Rhymes - Each week we teach the children a few new songs or rhymes for that week's theme. Children like repetition so don't be afraid to sing any song the children really like on a daily basis, but try to add a few new ones each week. Don't expect the toddlers to sing with you but they really enjoy music so please sing. In time they will be able to copy the hand movements to the songs and nursery rhymes they hear often and before you know it they will start to sing a word or two. Be sure to include some of the children's favorites each week. Some of our children's favorites are listed below.

  • The Wheels On The Bus
  • If You’re Happy And You Know It
  • Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
  • ABC Song
  • Old McDonald Had A Farm
  • The Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • One Two Buckle My Shoe
  • Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed
  • Five Little Monkeys Teasing Mr. Crocodile
  • Plus others.

Weather Chart - The weather chart is included in every monthly curriculum package. We start our morning program off each day with circle time. To begin our circle time, we discuss with the children the weather outside. We have the children look out the window and then we ask them "what is the weather outside?"If you have a lot of younger children they may not be able to answer correctly, then we give them hints; such as, (Is the sky white or blue?) if its white does anyone know what that means? (It’s cloudy) "Is it raining outside?""Is it snowing outside?""Is it cloudy outside?""Is it windy outside?"We have a weather chart and each day we have one of the children move the arrow to the correct weather for that day.

Daily Circle Time Activities

Art Time - There is a daily art project (craft) for the children to do each day that goes along with that weeks theme. After circle time we have the children come to the table and sit down and get ready for art time. Look in your Toddler or Preschool lesson plans to see which craft you will be doing that day, and if you need to print anything out for that days craft. If we are going to use glue I place the glue into tiny plastic cups such as the kind you get with the sample play dough. I only put a small amount in the cup; just enough for that days project. I give the toddlers large brushes to use and the preschoolers smaller ones. If we are going to paint I make sure each child has some type of paint shirt on. If you do not have enough paint shirts, you can always use an old sweat shirt and cut off the arms. Anything will work. We use our old and stained up wash clothes for paint rags. I just wet the paint rag and it keep it handy for spills or for a child who is done before the others, or we may keep a dish pan with a small amount of water in it for the children who finish early to rinse off until they can get into the bathroom to wash up with soap and warm water.
