Here is a copy of the simple chart that I use for writing down some of the activities I am planning on doing with my toddler each week. It is suitable for infants to preschoolers using the Glenn Doman programs.
The sections include:
Reading (teaching sight word reading, phonics, etc)
Poetry, Literature, & Music (stories, mother goose, finger plays, etc)
Language Development (talking and specific vocabulary or concepts to work on)
Writing (both the motor aspect, such as drawing with a pencil, and the expressive aspect, such as telling stories while parent writes them down)
Math (counting, arithmetic, shapes, etc)
Encyclopedic Knowledge (art, science, history, geography, foreign languages, music, scripture, and other facts to introduce, usually via flash card)
Mobility (walking & running program, as well as cross pattern creeping & crawling)
Small Motor (activities that develop small motor muscles)
Active or Passive Balance (active balance activities, such as rolls & turns, and passive balance activities, such as being moved in different positions by parent)
Sensory (stimulating the five senses)
New! Character & Moral (teaching children obedience, virtues, etc)
Inspiration for teaching babies & toddlers these topics is from the Glenn Doman library.
How to Use
1. You can fill in each day’s activities (Monday – Friday) or you can just use the boxes to write ideas for the week, and get to the activities whenever you can. The later is the method I use.
2. You don’t have to do every subject every day. Some subjects I only try to do once a week.
3. You don’t have to do every subject every week. Most weeks we skip a few subjects entirely. Just because the boxes are there doesn’t mean you have to use them all.
4. It’s ok if you don’t get to all of it. Start small. I never even have mine all the way filled out and I still don’t usually get to everything. Keep it enjoyable and focus on introducing your child to the joy of learning, not stressing yourself out for not “doing enough”. Anything you do is better than nothing!
