Hi, Krisy! I don't teach preschool or primary grades so I can't be a lot of help with your question. We have a others that have more experience with preK and K that can probably help you. While you're waiting for them to post a reply

I know exactly what you mean. One reason I've never really wanted to teach preK-1 is because of the limited curriculum. How many ways can you teach the colors and the alphabet? I hope you get some ideas from the other members. It's back to school time

Hi Krisy! Forgive me for just jumping in here, but my son's preschool did a neat thing last year that I wanted to share. They would focus on a shape each week. On the last day, the teacher would give each student a piece of paper with just the outline of the shape on it. The students would then draw the rest of the picture to turn it into something. So a triangle might become a birthday hat, a volcano, or it could be turned upside down to be an ice cream cone. They put them on the walls each week, so it was neat to see where all of the different little minds went with it.
