30 Days of Colors – Preschool Lesson Plan
I can’t believe it’s already time to move on to our second unit of learning for this school year! If you saw it on the blog a few weeks ago, we started off this school year with a preschool lesson plan that I put together; 30 Days of Shapes. We ended up having a few bumps in the road, like Farmer Boy breaking his wrist on his left hand (he’s left handed) that we had to take a little pause for, but we did alright.
With this second lesson plan we are hoping to solidify the schedule we started working on in our first month (which will be much easier now that fall/winter prep is over!) and we hope to solidify the shapes we learned about in our first study. So for this second study, which is mainly focused on colors, we will also be adding in the shapes we learned to build on the foundation we already set up. I’m so proud of my little Farmer Boy and he’s proud too and brings me everything that he can find that is a circle! Our goal with this 30 day study is to have it completed by the end of the year so next year we can start learning about animals and numbers!
- 30 days of learning (doesn’t need to be all in a row)
- Focus on one main topic during the 30 days (colors this time)
- To create a routine that is easy to follow each day
- To teach what “following instructions” means
- School Time
- Free Play
- Snack Time
- Life Skills

- Story Time
Colors Lesson Plan for Preschool
I’m excited to start teaching Farmer Boy all about his colors. As of yet he hasn’t learned the color names, but I’m hoping that he will have a good basic understanding of his colors by the time we are done with this study. It should be fun for him since everything will be colorful and bright!
We are still going through Rod and Staff’s Preschool books and still on the first book. We will continue that book through this month, plus add in the activities below and some other fun color related activities, like coloring with crayons, playing with sidewalk chalk (if the weather allows), and add in holiday related activities. Luckily, there is quite a bit of color to Christmas so that should be fun! Towards the end of this year I also plan on putting together a Christmas preschool lesson plan for him to start teaching a basic understanding of what Christmas is really all about.
