Preschool Lesson – Letter E for Easter and The Number 12

Letter E for Easter & The Number 12 - TheEngineersKids.com

Over the years we have saved a lot of money by organizing co-op preschools with our friends. With a group of 5-8 kids, you can have a lot of fun and they love learning together. Bigger groups can lead to feeling crowded in a home (and can get loud). Smaller groups don’t seem to generate enough chaos to make it something the kids look forward to.

I want to share some of the lessons I’ve done with co-op preschool groups in the past.  They usually were based on one letter and one number that we studied that day. Note, most of these lessons were taught in my home, which has never been larger than a three-bedroom townhouse, so you need a little space, but not an auditorium for a living room. Without further ado, I give you:
