Toddler Playschool: I is for In My Family lesson plan {free printable}

Pin It
This week's Toddler Playschool focuses on family. It's always a fun theme to do with toddlers and preschoolers because it brings their little worlds into the learning environment.  We always learn better when it's a subject we like, right? Below you can find a free lesson plan for toddlers to focus on types of families and each child's family.
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.
