Fire Prevention Month

October is Fire Prevention Month.  Please make sure your smoke detector is working (also, remember to change your battery when you set your clocks back an hour, first Sunday in November).

Here are some resources that you may want to use with your family.

Teacher Vision has a list of printable resources.  With this site, you get 3 free printables, then they want you to join for a fee. I just get the free ones.

What to do with preschoolers

I know this topic has been visited in conversations through telephone lines, email groups and around kitchen tables everywhere:: What do I do with my preschoolers while I’m schooling my other children?

And while different families have different dynamics (obviously), hopefully we can glean good ideas from each other. Please leave your ideas in the comments section or next week my 4 year old may just drive me bananas! :D

Here’s some links to ideas that others have used:

Preschool Activities–good ideas tucked into ziploc baggies

Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations has a whole category of “Preschool Corner” posts

Walking by the Way has a section on Preschool too! Check out these activities for younger ones.

Okay…I’ve got more to share, but I’m out of time. Your turn to share some ideas.  Leave a comment; I’m sure we’ll all appreciate it. :)
