Hi all!

Here’s a bit of inspiration for you! These suggestions will add depth to your child’s love of planes ✈️ .

One of the best ways to help your homeschooler gain knowledge is by following their interests. Because they are already interested. Currently my son is on a plane kick and I’ve been able to build on it!

Here’s how.

My Preschoolers Interest of the Week: PLANES! 

How to create an Interest-Led Learning lesson Plan!

Ari watching an airplane!


I requested lots of books from our local library: Picture, Fiction and Non-Fiction books! We read or flip through them together and “go with the flow”.  Ari has many questions and we are able to find the answers.

 2. Field Trip!

We spent our morning at a small local airport that has a PLAYGROUND!! How to do Interest Led Learning. Air Plane theme.

Ari had a great time and was able to watch planes: land, take off and refuel! Obviously, from the look on his face, he was ecstatic!


We watch videos about the Wright Brothers:

New Vocabulary:

  • Aviation
  • Inventor
  • Acceleration
  • Deceleration

Spanish (Foreign Language):

We learned Spanish words that relate to airplanes!

  • Airplane: Avion
  • Airport: Aeropuerta
  • Sky: Cielo
  • Clouds: Nubes
  • Up: Arriba
  • Down: Abajo


Art without guidance. I allow Ari to draw and paint the way HE see’s things

  • Airplane drawings & paintings


  • Paper Airplanes!


Remember, this is a very loose lesson plan, meant only to inspire. You can easily customize this to meet your families needs!

That wraps it up! I hope this helps!

Happy Plane Watching!

The school year is quickly approaching and I am really excited to be starting this new homeschooling journey with my son. These extra years I will have with him will be absolutely priceless!

I’ve been using the last few months to plan, research and test drive different learning styles and approaches, as well as different homeschooling styles. There’s an enormous amount of information to sift through; but I have been able to discover two very important things. Our homeschool is Child-Centered and Interest-Led. To my amazement we are NOT Child-led as I once believed. Read More »
