Planning for preschool


Edited January 2013:  It was my plan to add more to this post as our youngest son learned his letter names and sounds during his “preschool” year.  What I did not expect was that he would all ready know his letter names and sounds and not need actual K4 lessons.  All I can figure is that he picked up what his older sister was learning because he is usually in close proximity during her lessons.  So I am sorry to say that I will not be adding any more information to this post. 

However, we will be starting a K5 year with him January 2013.  And since he high-tails it out of the room the second I pull out a workbook of any sort, his schooling will be in the form of literature based and activity based…or so it is in my head anyway.  I hope you’ll still be able to use these K3/K4 posts but I hope you’ll check back and see what our K5 looks like for a very active little boy! 

The preschool years were so much fun in our home.  I loved every second of it!  I hope you will enjoy yours too!

I’m a little sad about this post.  This year will be the last year that we have a preschooler in our homeschool.  And while I’m excited that my babies are growing up, I’m kind of sad that my babies are growing up.  {smile} 

Preschool in our home is relaxed.  We focus on learning letter names, letter sounds, numbers, and counting.  We will do some basic math computation but we don’t call it addition and subtraction.  We just call it everyday fun.  What the preschoolers don’t realize is that they are learning too. 

This post is going to be a collection of posts that have been written about teaching preschoolers.  It will also contain links to the letters and activities that we did when Sunshine Girl was a preschooler.  I’m gathering all of these links in one place for us to use this year and I wanted to share in case any of y’all need some ideas too.
