I recently shared how I organize My Father’s World Kindergarten curriculum.
Organizing and decorating run through my veins!. I love to do both of them passionately! So I can’t wait to share with you how I organize our preschool curriculum as well!
I hope it will be a blessing to you as you are trying to figure out how on earth to organize all of the many pieces that come along with this fantastic curriculum!
Everything that is included in the preschool set needs to be organized. There are lot of pieces!
I knew I wanted this all to be easily accessible. I wanted my preschooler to be able to grab things easily and independently. This was a way for him to grow in his listening and following direction skills throughout the year.
I decided on using a 3-Shelf Cube Organizer system along with buckets that could be removed easily.
These shelves end up being the perfect height for preschoolers and the buckets with handles allowed him to easily remove them without dropping everything to the floor.
I loved the colors all year! I was able to purchase these buckets at our local dollar store in August last year. I’d definitely look there first to save some money. They held up all year for us; we are able to use them again this year. I wouldn’t use the fabric bins because they wouldn’t hold up long term with the wear they’ll see.
I had one bucket for each skill set. One bucket for the pegs (math). One bucket for the fine motor lacing cards. One bucket for letters (which are puzzle pieces and fine motor lacing as well!)
But wait I have more than 3 buckets!
One bucket is for math manipulatives that I picked up in the Target dollar bins. We used these so much! And my guy LOVED them! They always asked to play them. Keep your eyes open next August for them, I’m sure they’ll have them again.
The last two buckets are for our craft supplies. We are lovers of all things crafty so having a stockpile of supplies on hand makes for a fun craft day!
I added more to this curriculum to make it more well rounded for my already 4 year old. We added the Rod and Staff preschool workbooks and also workbooks from the dollar bins at Target. Every week we focused on a letter and number as well.
After adding those, I felt it was the perfect preschool curriculum for us! Nothing lacking and not too much. He learned motor skills, thinking skills, letters and numbers and did lots of fun crafts throughout the year!
We had lots of fun and lots of tears (my guy hated lacing and anything fine motor!)!
We are doing Preschool all over again this year with our second little guy with the same set-up!
Your turn! Are you using MFW this school year? What tips would you add for organizing the fun preschool sets? Can’t wait to hear!
