These lesson plans are planned for my 3 year old daughter. We don’t always do all of the activities in one setting. We focus on one topic a day. You can read the background on my preschool lesson plans here.

Color a basic letter poster for the wall, add a letter sticker
Introduce the number: use a number grab bag with the various numbers we have in the house (foam number, blocks, magnet letter).
