I like to come up with my own preschool curriculum for my little ones. I may pick up a few little worlbooks here and there, but for the most part we like to come up with our own unit studies for preschool. One thing you will want to make sure to cover during preschool are shapes! I found lots of fun ways to teach shapes to your little ones with free printables and lots of hands-on ideas.
