Free one year old lesson plans {to get a head start for Pre-K}

If you are looking for free lesson plans for one year olds to get a sense of what it is to Homeschool your little one, or to add more learning through playtime at home here are 8 lesson ideas that I worked on with my son.

If you are like me, it’s always on your mind – am I teaching my child enough? Am I giving him enough attention? Should I be doing more to help him learn? Could I be a better mom??

The mom guilt is REAL and it’s totally normal.

We always feel like we could be doing more for our children: feeding them better, teaching them more, being more patient. 

When it comes to teaching and doing activities at home, Pinterest is full crafts but nothing really tells you what to teach and what they are learning. All educational material is usually for older pre-school kids and nothing for one year old. 

Give them that advantage of knowledge before they start pre-k with fun activities during playtime with these free lesson plans.

I worked with speech developers, teachers, and other moms who have done teaching at home and took all their recommendations plus my research on what to teach them at this age and combined it with my passion for making teaching fun and creative.

I spent hundreds of hours on Pinterest to search and tweak (to suit a one year old) activities to make the most fun one-year-old curriculum out there! I used it myself, and I get told a lot of compliments about my son’s speech and development. Fastforward a year and now I teach sensory classes and help thousands of moms teach their little ones at home.

Mini Curriculum For One-Year-Olds

I love to create resources that will help you teach at home. This is why I created the Learning Binder for One-Year-Olds for the days when you only have 15 minutes a day to teach, or My First School: One-Year-Old Curriculum with over 30 quick and easy themed lessons you can do at home.

You can go as slow or as fast as you want to go. You will get fine motor skills, gross motor skills activities, messy and non-messy activities.

All of the activities are games and fun exercises your toddler will be excited about!

Some required a bit of set up but they are surely full of sensory exploration and fun!

These are part of the lessons found in our learning curriculum.

After hours of research, purchasing products, and later finding out they were NOT suitable for a one year old, I gave up and the teacher in me had to come out. I developed a workbook and a full curriculum to teach our little ones what they should know at one year old. This was all tweaked and tested my multiple moms before it was launched.

If you want something quick with low set up like the Toddler Binder for busy Moms, or you want more hands-on sensory activities like the ones included in the My First School: One Year Old Curriculum you will finally spend more time playing with your little one that searching for activities to do with him/her.

I dedicate myself to making learning fun. My goal is to help you reduce the time looking for ideas and spend more time playing and teaching at home.
here are the two top seller ONE-YEAR-OLD Learning Resources (available Printed or PDF)

I love the idea of having my toddler at home with me every day, and I want to maximize my time with him and practice skills that will help him succeed in pre-k as he works on each developmental milestone. Before I know it he will be starting pre-k and I want to make sure I prepare him well for that.
