At the turn of the year, I realized I had to rework my homeschooling plans for Lia.
The girl is a serious schoolgirl. She wanted more worksheets, please?? More puzzles? More painting? Please, please please??
At first, I pulled a variety of worksheets and activities from black-and-white workbooks, organizing them in folders. Then, I bipped around the online community and discovered sheer beauty: Confessions of a Homeschooler’s Letter of the Week curriculum.
This has been perfect for Lia. Every week, she focuses on one letter of the alphabet through all kinds of different activities: pushing pins into a bulletin board to outline the letter, pounding do-a-dots out in great, big capitol “E’s” and their baby “e’s”. She sequences elephants, apples, and inchworms from small to large, counts bears and stop-signs, makes patterns, decorates pictures with magnetic puff-balls, matches magnetic letters to real words, and laces around big, colorful pictures.
This $10 curriculum is packed with hands-on, developmentally challenging activities for preschoolers. I can’t say enough about it!
I laminate some of the activities, and insert others into plastic protectors.
