5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for a stay-at-home mom June 9, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used to be a preschool teacher in my former life (i.e. before I became a mom!), and when my toddlers reached the age of 2.5, I decided I needed a formal teaching curriculum. When I say "formal," I mean one that was structured but could also be adapted to a parent's limited-resource situation.

This book has been all of that and more. Each activity through the day is listed (from Circle Time through Assessment), as well as recommended books and materials. The subjects are as varied as one could want - from outer space to holidays to nature. I found that with most lessons, even if I didn't have the materials or books, I could usually supplement what we had in our craft box and/or bookshelf to make the theme work. I'd definitely recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource March 20, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great resource for students like me trying to get their teaching degree. It's full of great lesson plans perfect for early childhood education. I tried a couple with my three-year-old son and he had a blast! So did I. Highly recommend this for any student teacher or current teacher.

The years between three and six are vital to children's educational development. "The Giant Encyclopedia of Lesson Plans For Children 3 to 6: More Than 250 Lesson Plans Created by Teachers for Teachers" is a guide for preschool and kindergarten educators who want to give the young children the intellectual stimulation they need to be the smartest they can be for elementary school and later. The lessons tackle a long list of subjects such as shapes, colors, counting, reading, and more elementary but vital educational topics. "The Giant Encyclopedia of Lesson Plans for Children 3 to 6" is a must for teachers of this range who want diverse, effective lesson plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for moms! January 31, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is awesome! I'm a stay-at-home mom with an almost 3 year old. I own other activity books, such as the Busy Book, but this enormous one tops them all! Yes, it's intended for teachers but the daily "lesson plan" structure is extremely helpful for moms who like to do several activities each day with your kids. And to have it organized all nice and neat in one big book... it's great. Better than Pinterest. Each day has a theme and explores five or more regions of playful learning, such as Art, Sensory, Dramatic (pretend) play, Small & Gross Motor, Literacy, Writing, Math, Science, etc, depending on the day. Also listed are a selection of books to read for that day and a snack idea.

I'm just starting to get into this book and absolutely loving it. This is just what I've been looking for. If you're a mom who likes to keep your child(ren) engaged in play & activity instead of entertained by screens & TV, this book will be your best friend. It's very accessible and just an enormous mound of ideas.

tip: Try to buy it used. I got a copy in great condition for a fraction of the 'new' price (and still qualified for free super saver shipping). My copy was listed as Good condition - it seems only slightly used, much better than I was expecting! Thank you Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book March 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I work for the daycares on Army bases. Army standards make us be more like teachers than babysitters and are forced to make a weekly lesson plan for kids we are in charge of which range from 6 weeks to school age. This book helps me big time to come up with ideals since they always have to have a different theme or activities each week. I am in toddler and preschool rooms (ages 2years - 5 years) so this is the perfect age for me to use. I can not wait to start using it and be able to use this and make my job so much easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! October 2, 2011
By TPepper
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've actually had the book a few weeks and I'm just starting to use it. I already had lesson plans done when I purchased the book and now those are coming to an end and this has been really great helping me organize my ideas and thoughts. I know what lessons I want but I've needed the extra help getting organized to figure out what I want to do. The book is LOADED with not just ideas but songs, books to read, hands on activities, arts and crafts, role play, etc. It has everything! You are bound to find just what you are looking for.
