Living Colors Study: 10 weeklong lessons for preschoolers

Add To Cart

Living Colors is a gentle resource designed for preschoolers, but adaptable for younger children. This 102-page PDF digital download contains ten weeklong lessons, with a new focus color presented each week to explore together. Each lesson includes a supply list, book and music recommendations, and daily rhythm. Most of the supplies can be found in your home or easily substituted. These lessons take an eclectic approach to learning and cover a wide range of subjects and styles, embracing inspiration from Charlotte Mason, Montessori, Waldorf, and more. 

We believe that what children need most during the early years is the simple things like reading aloud and playing outdoors and the space to just be kids. That being said, we have also found that incorporating some sort of structured, intentional rhythm can help to establish healthy, happy foundations for the future and to foster an environment in which both children and parents thrive. All while honoring the simple beauty of childhood like cooking and nature exploration, picture books and creative play. 

The following subjects are thoughtfully incorporated into each lesson: Reading & Poetry, Nature Appreciation, Fine Motor Skills, Large Motor Skills, Practical Life Skills, Art & Music, Counting Skills, & Multi-Sensory Phonics. This resource is both gentle and developmentally sound, though more than the specifics of these lessons, our deepest hope is that it will help bring a purpose and presence to the things that fill your days, as it has our own.

Please note that after downloading, some phones and tablets require you to open the file in iBooks or Kindle if you do not have an automatic PDF reader.
