This is a 9-page preview of the "Hello Friends" curriculum for 2- and 3-year olds.
The curriculum features 30 tried-and-true lesson plans filled with songs, stories, crafts, and activities. “Friendship” is the theme, with lessons on how to be a friend, making friends, animal friends, being a friend to the earth, and much more.
"Hello Friends" was created to help volunteer teachers (parents) run a weekly class. The lessons are detailed because many of our parents had never taught a group of youngsters before and appreciated the step-by-step guidance.
"Hello Friends" is a unique resource -- it is difficult to find detailed lesson plans for this age group. In addition, for many of the children, this is a warm and easy first experience of a structured class.
We share these lessons here so church groups, day cares, summer camps, after school programs, and other informal learning settings can benefit. Through these lessons, we hope you will have the support you need to provide two and three-year old children with a loving and welcoming experience.
