Ten Unit Studies (and lapbooks) Your Preschooler Will Love! Find these free downloads at Homeschool Share
It seems like 1.4 katrillion resources are housed at Homeschool Share. Maybe you are overwhelmed by the volume of goodness, and you don’t know where to start. I get it. Maybe I can help.

I decided to take a peek at the behind-the-scenes stat stuff to see which units and lapbooks were favorites for preschoolers in 2015. Here are the Top Ten Most Popular Preschool Units of 2015. Browse the list, and I am sure you will find a few gems to try with your tot!

10. Owl Babies
Sweet little story about owl babies who are waiting on Mama Owl to return from a hunt.

Note: You may want to preview this book if you have a sensitive child or a child who has had early trauma/abandonment issues. You can read reviews here.

9. Going to the Grocery Store Unit Study
Learn shapes, colors, healthy eating habits and more while practicing fine motor skills and enjoying pretend play!

8. Hello Ocean
Learn all about the ocean–tide pools, seagulls, buoyancy, and more. Play a fun shell matching game, learn to count by 10s, and have fun fishing! It’s no wonder this unit made the top ten list.

7. The Mitten
Based on a Jan Brett classic, this unit study provides ample opportunities for your young student to learn: story sequencing, drama, geography, counting, comparing, matching, and woodland animals. A perfect choice for winter.

6. The Very Hungry Caterpillar
This favorite Eric Carle book is a delight for preschoolers. The lessons in the free lapbook focus on days of the week, counting, life cycle of a butterfly, opposites, sequencing, and healthy eating habits.

5. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
Download this free lapbook and enjoy learning about mice, story telling, circles, cookies, nursery rhymes, and more!

4. The Grouchy Ladybug
This irritable insect will provide a good story and an introduction to telling time, counting by 5s as well as making patterns. Your little student will also enjoy the science of ladybugs and whales.

3. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Learn colors, make patterns, create your own book, enjoy finger plays, and have fun with all the printables found in one of our MOST popular units of 2015.

2. Alphabet Notebook
If you haven’t seen this, please take a minute. Pin it. Share it. Let people know that this resource is FREE. Six homeschool moms put their noggins and talents together to create this. It’s big. It’s great. It could last your preschooler an entire year as a Letter of the Week Program!

And now, I feel that we should insert some dramatic music. Or pause. Or drum roll. Something? What was the #1 preschool resource in 2015?

1. My Body Unit Study
Measure, sing, rhyme, move! Learn about germs, arms, exercise, bones, and your brain. This unit is a fantastic way to teach science to your young students. Have fun!
