Activity Planner Month 1 | Themes: Dinosaurs and Space

guided learning, low prep activities, fun & engaging printables, 4-week prefilled planner

"We have really enjoyed the Activity Planner for my son who is almost 5. It gives us daily structure and so many activities. We do so much hands-on learning already but this really helps us get creative with new games and activities. One of my favorite things is that some of the things like a nature hunt or the dice activities, we do as a family and include my other two children. It really becomes a family activity. We can pick and choose what we feel works best for our schedule and lifestyle, but there are endless choices. I have already recommended this program to several friends! Wonderful work! ".

What is guided learning? It is a form of learning that is grounded on the basis of the fundamental principles of early childhood development. We all know that children thrive within clear boundaries and when provided with a concrete structure. Preschool Activity Planner is here to help you and give you tools and very specific steps to create an environment where the child will receive just enough guidance to then use these skills to propel his or her development and progress further in the learning journey, encourage spontaneous activity that forms child’s personality.

I want you to stop wondering and stressing over having to plan educational and fun learning activities for your preschooler. So allow a professional early childhood teacher to give you peace of mind. I created a planner with activities that cover all main areas of a child’s development and support a child’s cognitive, emotional, and physical growth naturally and engagingly.

The total value of all materials included with the Month One planner when bought separately is over $100.



4-Week Prefilled Planner

Each day comes with low prep activities that cover major areas of a child’s development and foster independence, creativity, and critical thinking. No need to purchase expensive materials. Most of the activities are easy to prepare and set up.

Two preschool packs with hands-on activities

Pack #1. Space Themed Preschool Pack

Pack #2. Dinosaur Themed Preschool Pack

Fun, engaging, educational, Montessori-minded. This is what I aimed for when I was creating these preschool learning packs for children. Detailed instructions and activity variations are also included.

Bonus Library

The bonus library contains downloads with hundreds of pages from my shop with Montessori-inspired printables.

About the Author


Anastasia is an early childhood teacher with 10 years of experience working in a Montessori classroom. Now she is a homeschooling mother of three. Her passion is to support fellow parents and help foster a love of learning and independence in their young children. Anastasia is not a stranger to the homeschool challenges parents face when they first begin to homeschool their children. She has been raising her three children with Montessori principles at heart from the very start. She stepped into a Montessori classroom for the first time eighteen years ago and has never looked back. The second-generation teacher, Anastasia was brought up in a school that at the time was called "experimental". Located in the forest, with a lake, acres of the wild forest for students to call their playground, innovative teachers, international summer camps, and eleven students per classroom, it could not be any further away from traditional education. At twenty years of age, Anastasia had a university degree under her belt, she pursued her passion for intentional travel. She continued to study in Europe and volunteer to work with underprivileged children in Russia. Later she pursued her desire to continue working with children and get her official teaching degree. She completed her Post Grad in Early Childhood in Australia and worked at the American Montessori preschool classroom in Russia and at Montessori Children's House in Australia. She also volunteered to work in a childcare center in the US and spent an unforgettable summer in the woods of Montana working as a counselor in a Summer camp.

However, nothing can be more testing and satisfying for Anastasia as working and investing in the future of her own children. Once her oldest turned three, she started to homeschool. Now she is very keen to share her experience and eager to help parents avoid mistakes she has made along the way.

What others are saying..

"Many Montessori methods are not new to me but what is new is creating a flow of activities that build on skills; breaking down activities to the simplest steps, that are the perfect level for preschool ages. This is a great resource! You can use it as a starting point or just use as is. I have a four year and two year olds who are obviously at different levels. The great (and easy) thing about this package is that you can use the SAME set of materials for each child using the variations based on their level. This has been good for our family to create some flow as we "officially" start our little homeschool".

"We joined Montessori Nature because I felt overwhelmed with trying to plan what I wanted my son's school curriculum to look like. I knew with the worldwide pandemic that sending him to school wasn't an option for our family right now. This program gave me peace of mind knowing that planning activities out would be one less thing I would have to worry about in my already very busy schedule. My son looks forward to finding his daily activities on his shelf each day and is challenged just enough that I see him flourishing while also not feeling too frustrated. The lesson themes fit his interests which is also important to our family. Thank you so much for this program!".

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I get access to the next month's content?
​I add new monthly content when it becomes available. I spend so much time preparing just the right activities and printables for your children. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes longer than expected. Generally the doors open for 5 days during which you can purchase all available planners at a fraction of the price. If you join the waiting list, you will be the first to get notified!
How long do I have access to the content?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this planner and bonus library for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
I have purchased on Teachable before. Can I use existing myTeachable email address?
Yes. You can use your existing myTeachable email address if you'd like. When you log in for the first time to your school after you complete a purchase, there will be a step for you to enter your login details to connect this presentation to your myTeachable account.
Is it a reoccurring subscription?
No. This is a one-time purchase. Each month's materials are sold separately.
At what age can I start with the activity planner for my child?
The planner is designed with children 3-6 in mind. Educators can start using the planner with their students from the age of 3. You will most definitely need to adapt it as you progress to suit your child's developmental needs. Three-year-olds might require more assistance than older children. Many parents reported they were able to successfully implement the planner in a multiage group setting with younger and older siblings.
How many monthly packs are available right now?
At the moment you can access Months 1-6 and the Christmas Bundle.
Should I start with month 1 or from the latest month that is available?
Generally speaking, starting with month one is a good idea if your child is not familiar with letter sounds and letter/number formations as the packs do follow a natural progression of skills acquired and sequence. The same goes for practical life. However, if you wish for your child to do month 5 first and learn about Antarctica and do more Valentine's day centered activities for Compassion and Peace themes, you can set aside more challenging work for later and still enjoy Month five resources nevertheless.
Would I still get the bonus material if I start from one of the previous months?
Each month comes with all my seasonal packs (two sets for each season) with a total value of $59.50. Every month has also additional bonuses from my shop to supplement the central themes.
Would teachers and classroom educators benefit from this planner, or is it strictly for homeschooling families?
Absolutely! Teachers may benefit from it greatly. In fact, this is the best way to get the most value from materials I create as you receive access not only to preschool packs but also to my seasonable printables with learning activities and related content for a fraction of the price.
What is a total value of the planner?
The total value of all materials included with each planner when bought separately is USD100.
