Toddler Playschool: N is for Nighttime {free printable}

Pin It
What lesson plan topic for the letter N is a favorite with toddlers and preschoolers... Bedtime.  Haha... right? I know so many of us struggle with this time of the day as parents.  But maybe some of these activities in this free nighttime lesson plan can help make bedtime more appealing to your little one.  
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.

The Wheels on the Train
(The Wheels on the Bus tune)
The wheels on the train go round and round
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the train go round and round
All through the town
(repeat for the following)
Conductor on train says "tickets please"
Engine on the train goes "chugga chugga choo"
People on the train go bumpy bumpy bump

5 Little Llamas Jumping on the Bed
(5 Little Monkeys tune)
Five little llamas jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said
"No more llamas jumping on the bed!"
(repeat for 4-1 llamas)
I Love You
(The Barney Song)
I love you, you love me
We're best friends as friends should be
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me, too?
