Methods of teaching swimming to children of preschool age

I hope to use this site to share the many experiences I have had with preschoolers during methods of teaching swimming to children of preschool age 20 years of teaching. I would like to share crafts, activities, and some insights. Do you have an idea that you would like to share with the readers? I love sharing fresh new ideas.

I think the time has come to let Preschool Playbook take a bow. I have been writing since 2008. I have shared with everyone ideas, crafts, tips, values, etc. I thought were so much fun, or of such importance.

Through the years I have taken readers through our years at school. You have played with us, you have created with us, you have learned with us. But, I have shared everything I have. You now know everything I know–not too much huh? I am leaving Preschool Playbook out there in cyberspace because I truly believe that it contains so much  helpful information for parents and teachers alike. I hope there are still many that can find usefulness in the material here. I love everything on this site.

I myself visit to remind me of certain activities, or even to find something for a special day. You may hear from me occasionally, if a great new idea comes along, but for the most part I have already shared it all. I humbly thank each and every reader I have ever had. So many of you have brightened my days with your fun comments and even helpful suggestions. I wish you all joy, luck, and great happiness. Our past week the children at our school spent time getting to know themselves and their friends. We had a wonderful week full of exciting activities.

The Pre-K class spent the first couple of weeks reviewing colors and shapes, next week we start our Alphabet Books. Some of the activities we did included a friendship wreath and a class mural for the three-year-olds. We paint a mural every year and I am always trying to figure out the best way to set it up so that the three’s can reach everywhere to paint the paper. This year I think I finally came up with a decent idea. I turned a table on its’ side, then taped the paper to it so it was like an easel.
