Preschool Themes and Lesson Plans

Preschool themes are fun, interesting topics that draw young children into learning. They are the basis of the activities you create for art, science, math, dramatic play, reading, writing, circle time, and more!

Preschool teachers and parents of preschoolers can use traditional and not-so-traditional topics to develop their curriculum.

A Transportation theme, for example, is traditional in preschool. Preschoolers love learning about and playing with cars, trucks, airplanes, and more. This topic is part of their everyday lives. They drive or walk to school, have seen or ridden on a bus, or have taken an airplane to go on vacation. This natural interest in something they experience in their lives brings life to the theme.

What about a theme called Sticky? This is not quite a traditional theme! However, it became very compelling for the students of one classroom!

A preschool teacher and her coworker observed that their students seemed extremely curious about how things stuck together from magnets, to bristle blocks to paper.

The teachers brainstormed together about how to take this newfound interest of their preschoolers and develop it into a unit filled with activities the children learn and grow from.

Both of these theme examples lend themselves to learning. Activities are provided that promote and support the preschooler's growth and development through a theme that they are naturally interested in.
