Themes of the week were easy when the oldest didn't quite "get it". I would set themes weekly and I would order books and videos from the library and pick them up when they were in. I would have a circle time while the kids ate lunch or while waiting for parents to pick up and read one or two of the books.
Now that Ava is going to be 3 this March, I think it is time to ramp up the activities we do for the themes.
Upon brainstorming and Internet searching I have decided to do monthly themes with crafts, stories and activities specifically designated to that theme (thank you Kids soup!).
Check out my schedule at my home daycare website to see what we are doing.
