Preschool Themes Book Lists

Summer break is a time when many preschool  teachers review themes and units used in the past year, and begin to plan for the next school year. I've been excitedly planning themes to use in preschool with my three year old next fall. As I've been planning, I've been organizing my book reviews and book activities by preschool theme. I've created a quick reference page at ready-set-read. You can find all of my books categorized by theme by using the "book lists by theme" button on my sidebar.

Also, each Monday this summer, I'll be adding a new preschool theme book list. Here are some of the themes I'll be covering in the month of May.

  • friendship
  • dinosaurs
  • community helpers
  • transportation

I gathered ideas for themes by brainstorming with other parents and teachers on my facebook page. If you have a favorite preschool theme, please join our discussion. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  2. I am a preschool teacher and LOVE your stuff! I am just beginning a social studies unit for next year - thanks for the great ideas!
