Preschool lesson plan webs

I use webs ALL OF THE TIME.  Seriously, I'm a very visual person so it always helps when I can organize my ideas on a piece of paper. Once I can see it all in writing it seems to make more sense, and I am more likely to remember my ideas and thoughts.

There are so many different ways to use brainstorming webs in the classroom;

  • planning for themes or projects
  • brainstorming activities that meet early learning standards
  • planning for IEP or IFSP goals for specific children
  • organizing ideas for classroom centers
  • brainstorming ideas for special events and family activities
The best thing about a web is that it can be revisited over and over again, you can add sections and ideas, and use it as a record of the things that you've already explored or accomplished.  

I tend to spend a little too much time making my webs look "pretty." Because I use them so often, I want them to look nice! So I put together a colorful, printable web that I can print and use any time.  Download your copy here and start planning!


  1. I clicked on the "Download your copy here", but nothing happened. I love both of the webs you shared today and would enjoy using them in my planning. :)

    1. Hi Deje, I'm so sorry the link didn't work for you, it seems to be fine on my end but the file does have a lot of graphics, so it may just be that it takes a little while to load. I'm happy to email it to you, my email is erinnicole79@live.com, send me a quick note so that I have your email address and I'll attach the file in my reply!
