All the other grades have a thread, is everyone scared to admit they make plans for the littles?
I have a four year old who's been begging to "do school" since she was two lol. This year she's been doing lots of cutting workbooks from Kumon and the like, she's raced through eight million sticker books, a couple of maze books, the preschool set put out by CLE (which we both adored!), some old Horizon preschool pages (left over from a brother) and I've probably used a gallon of paint and glue, as well as a ten-pound bag of flour to make play dough! We've read all the books from B4FIAR that I could beg, borrow or buy online for less than $10. We're both bored with it, tired of it all and ready for a change!
So, with a big flourish the week after she turned four, I pulled out section 2 and 3 from an unfinished AAR Pre-1 book (from another one of her brothers) and we're now starting her own ABC book. She just about fainted with glee when I pulled out an unused 3-ring binder (just like the big kids!) and wrote her name on the spine. I'm astonished what she's picked up already from listening in, Tad and the Letter Factory, and iPad apps lol. We're combining the two sections, working on recognizing lower-case letters and their most common sound at the same time.
I'm heading to a conference later this month and I intend on purchasing the HWOT PreK book to start as well. She writes letters all over everything on her own and I'd like to start some good habits. I own FIAR 1, but I think I'll hold off until the fall to start that. I'm seriously considering the Preschool Math book from Peace Hill Press for some fun easy math games to do with her.
This is my last baby!!!! I haven't done FIAR before although I've always thought it would be great. I'm so glad I'm getting to do that with my youngest (My seven year old loves the books too)
Anyone else thinking ahead to a PreK or K year?
