"All About Me" is a popular September preschool theme and I decided to go with it as well because I love all that can be discussed within this topic! I threw in Grandparent's Day because I thought it was perfect to go with this theme since we'll be talking about families, and I also added a Mexican Independence Day project because a) one more thing to celebrate, b) I'll be adding in Spanish printables/books/flashcards every month since I want my boys to be bilingual!
Check out my post for free preschool planning printables as well as our entire 12 months of themes.
In my printables you'll find a sheet that has 12 developmental focus areas. After planning our monthly theme and activities, I went through the focus areas to make sure I covered each one at least once. That's why you'll see random things like "help Mommy clean..." that may not seem to necessarily tie in with our theme but housekeeping is a developmental focus so I added it in there.
