  1. I have another question for the group. My second child (boy - 3 years and 3 months old) is at the point where I feel I need to start some sort of formal learning/ work. Until now we have been reading to him everyday; playing with duplos, cars, trains; used leapfrog dvds, and take him outdoors - park, pool, etc whenever we can. I would like to get ideas on what/ where would be a good place to start for math,reading and writing. I have looked at HWT and like it. I have used AAS with my older daughter (7 years old) and thought I could use their AAR program with my 3 year old. Confused ab

  3. Hi there! There are already threads that list free curriculum, but they focus more on the older kids, so I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread with free curriculum for preschoolers and kindergartners. These are some of the resources I used as a teacher and now as a mom. Please add on and list any free curriculum or resources you are using or that you know of. I taught 4 year old Kindergarten before homeschooling, and I worked closely with the 5K teacher to mesh our programs. For my son, we just have fun doing phonics, handwriting together, math games, and take lots of field tri
  4. Hi everyone, I just learned about Better Chinese and was wondering if anyone has used it? I am specifically looking at their preschool program but am completely overwhelmed by all of their choices. What are the must have's and what can be skipped? Are people using alone or with a tutor? Thanks, Marisa
  5. I'm thinking ahead to next year and wanting to figure out some ideas for Ancient World thru Middle Ages. We're also doing all the other things included in Cycle 1 of Classical Conversations. I just want to get a little prepared, as it's hard when you're going through everything the first year of each cycle.....We're just getting it down for Cycle 3 and now...I'm already looking at what we can do for Cycle 1..so I can prepare better:-) Carrie PS, I'm specifically looking for ways to present to the 4's and 5's but I welcome all comments:-)
  6. I'm trying to get a plan together. My 3 year old will be doing our own version of 'letter of the week'. I'm curious how everyone else organzies this. What are your weekly and daily plans?
  7. Want to share notes? I have a very busy 3 1/2 yo who I have decided to have stay home for preschool due to numerous food allergies. My oldest two had gone to preschool so this is a new swing to things here ;) I am trying to come up with fun things for him to do with us while we are working more one on one. I would love to hear everyone's ideas :)
  8. I'm stressing when I shouldn't be! I have my K'ers curriculum all set and now I want to get something for my 3yo. (I know he doesn't need anything...) I was thinking SL p3/4. Love the collection of books but wish there was a bit more. He knows all his letters, numbers through about 13 or so, colors, shapes etc which most preschool programs go through. Any suggestions? I've been debating ordering directly from SL, trying to find it used, buying Montessori materials instead, finding another program or just trying to be patient and see how it goes. (This approach is currently not working!) I'
  9. I have no preschoolers of my own, but I have a home daycare and have been asked to do preschool. I need some easy free or really cheap ideas to do for them. There is a little boy, age 3(as of June) and little girl, just turned 2. Any free or close free activities out there? What does everyone else do with their own preschoolers?
  10. For those of you who have little ones (3 and under) who are really too little to participate in school much, how do you keep them occupied while you are working with your older kids? I've looked at some of the Quiet Books from RR, but I don't know who long they would really keep her occupied. So, I'm really just looking for some ideas.
  11. DD is 4. I don't see the point in having a "curriculum" for her but then I see all of these other posts about people needing a math or LA's program for their 4yo. So I'm starting to second guess myself. My "plan" for DD this year was to have her hang out with us like she did last year. She likes the coloring pages for SOTW and colors those alongside DS while I read. She likes to help with projects for science and history. She loves books and will usually stick around for readalouds. She does Pianimals by choice. She has various workbooks and manipulatives at her disposal and often c
  12. Hello everyone, I am attending a curriculum at the end of the month and am super excited about it.:001_smile: My DD is 3 but will be 4 in October. She is a tough, strong willed, independent but smart little cookie. We have been using the sing, spell, read and write phonics program. She is doing simple CVC blends with no problem now. She can count and add simple problems with a bit of assistance. She knows; shapes, colors, direction, size. So what I am asking for are any suggestions you have on curriculums, programs, books, etc. that you think I should take a look at. I am ope
  13. My 3yo son has been reading for a while, and he likes spelling with foam bath letters. He'll give me a word and have me spell it, and then he wants me to give him a word to spell. I usually just offer whatever word I think he'll enjoy. Should I be doing this in some systematic way? I don't mean should I turn it into schoolwork, but should I be offering words in some kind of logical progression that will help him absorb the rules of spelling instead of saying whatever comes to my mind at the moment?
  14. Hello! This is my first post here on this forum. I have just started homeschool preschool with my two oldest. We've started The Ordinary Parent's Guide To Teaching Reading and I am liking it so far. I'm curious about what other moms (and dads) do about handwriting. My son is not interested and not ready for the writing portion of it all. However, my daughter shows great interest in copying her letter cards and writing her new letter over and over, even during coloring time. Did you let your child develop this naturally or did you implement a handwriting program at this point? (Thank you, in ad
  15. The back to schools sales should be starting some time next month here in Georgia and I was wondering what kind of "supplies" should I get for dd (she will be 19 months on the 26th of June and will have to last until next July) It would be for preschool type stuff, and what kind of workbooks should I get her? I know I need the preschool ones but are some better than others? Would the cartoon character ones that they sell at dollar stores for $1.00 work? Or should I invest more money into them? I am getting them for her so she has something to do while I am doing my school work. Thanks
  16. I will be doing Pre-K with my twins in the fall and am looking for a good curriculum. My son knows all of his letters and letter sounds, can count to ten, knows colors and shapes. My daughter knows most of the letters not all the sounds and can count to 5, knows shapes but not colors. We do starfall right now and just general play things. We will be doing Joy Preschool one day a week in the fall for 2 hours and I want something that I can do with them on the other days. They will be 4 in the fall and I plan to start K with them the following Fall when they are 5 (because of their b-day
  17. I've been looking for a list of books with coordinating activities. I finally found a company today that has these in book form! The Mailbox has them. Here's what I found at their website: www.themailbox.com Storytime from A to Z Listen Make and Learn at Storytime Seasonal Storytime Everything Nursery Rhymes These all have lists of books in them with activities. Some you copy off to do, some you gather supplies....I"m so excited! Does anyone know of any other books or lists like this out there? I love doing activities after reading books! Normally I read the book a
  18. I have 2 older boys, oldest average in intelligence and younger son is gifted mathematically. My dd will be 2 in 2 weeks. She can sing her ABCs, count to 5, recognize half the alphabet, knows colors, knows shapes, and speaks clearly. What sort of curriculum do you use? She could not write, but I would like to teach her to read since the interest is there. She will listen to me read books for an hour!
  19. What are some of the preschool curriculum's out there? Also, bible curriculum for a 4 year old? Something very basic! Sherry
  20. I'm not looking for something rigorous by any means, just something fun that I can do with her. Something that is fun and includes a lot of play. It doesn't have to be a box set curriculum. A website, or book with ideas would be great. TIA!
  21. I have seen raves but I don't know what specific timberdoodle product is being raved about or why. Thanks!
  22. I'm not just chomping at the bit to get my almost 3 year old started with school, I read to her now, but she needs more structured learning I feel. I think workbooks would suit just fine, but not sure which. ANyone used Preschool Prep? http://www.preschoolprepco.com/h/i/index.php thanks!
  23. Ok - I work full-time and am due with my 3rd in 3 weeks. My sitter is great and does school with her 3 and my 2. My oldest is 4.5 and her oldest is 5, so they're in a "class" together. However, when it got to be 5 girls all together and she was so busy juggling all the different schedules, we agreed that she would do phonics with her oldest and I would do it with mine in the evenings. (They do the Preschool-ABC series from KeepersOfTheFaith.com otherwise, but it's been going really slow - one workbook last year and basically, only 1 workbook this year.) The idea of phonics at nigh
  24. she will be three this spring, and she likes to play school time, too. I had her grandpa build her a small child's desk to sit at and work beside us. I give her wooden puzzles, geometric stackers, wooden sorting toys, bead stringing, coloring and finger painting, and some of the boys' math manipulatives (she thinks they are cooler than spit) to play with. I also give her some easy Kumon pages for cut and paste, colors, and folding. And of course BOOKS! Any ideas for other educational toys for toddlers? I'm looking for some music CDs, and other stuff for her to enjoy during school time. Pos
  25. Hi I was wondering if any of you were doing Montessori with your kids? Just for the preschool/Kinder level? or the upper levels as well? Do you buy your materials? Make them? Please share your insights- you can send me a PM if you wish... I got a book on Montessori (focused more on the classroom), but is not quite clicking how to do it that at home with my Little one (thinking of my 19 month old boy now... ) - specially because of the materials needed... Do you adapt the materials needed (for example use the MUS blocks instead of the Beads for Math)? Also, do you h
