Whenever we talk about this Bible account, we always talk about David defeating Goliath with 5 smooth stones.  And wow, it is an amazing account!  
However, let's not forget that this little boy, David, could ONLY have defeated Goliath with God's help. 
Through his faith in God, David was able to overcome what others thought impossible.

A Preschool Feelings Theme can help children identify and name their emotions. Throughout each day, children experience a wide range of feelings.

Sometimes they experience them from hour to hour or sometimes from minute to minute! You can use this theme to teach the children how to react to their emotions as well.

There are so many things that stick! If there is something sticky to be found, our preschoolers will be the ones to find them! Children are fascinated with how and why things stick. This theme has so many directions it could go in!

What types of sticky things can you think of to add to your theme! Have fun with it and don't forget to ask your students about items they know of that stick that perhaps we haven't thought of!

August Preschool Themes - Holidays & Special Days

Did you know that August 3 is Watermelon Day? Me either!  Watermelon is probably one of the messiest yet enjoyable of snacks, especially in the summer!

I recommend watermelon every day during this theme! Perhaps a parent could sign up each day to provide one for your class!
