COMPLETE Summer Lesson Plan! {10 Weeks/ 200+ Ideas!}

This post contains affiliate links.

Alright y’all, I went back to work this week. I am back teaching preschool full time and as much as I am bummed about not being home with Avery, I am happy to be working with such a great group of kids during the day. For the summer, the preschool has a set list of themes for each week (I don’t work under preplanned themes during the school year) so I got to gathering some ideas and it turned into an epic list that I thought I would share with all of you! I need to share a couple of things however, I don’t by any stretch of the imagination think I will actually do every single activity on this list each week. There are just too many but that is because I am an over planner by nature. I really prefer to have many options so I can choose what I think the particular group of children will enjoy most. Also, some kids only come 2 or 3 days each week so that is even less time. All that being said, this list includes over 200 art, craft, sensory, outdoor and building projects under 10 themes.  That should get you through the entire summer!

This is a super fun book containing a number of, not surprisingly, awesome science experiments! I love the pictures and all the activities and this is something I could see both me and Wade using with Avery.
