Homeschool Preschool - week 1

28th January 2007

Homeschool Preschool - week 1

Tomorrow we’re starting school! I’m preparing our lessons for the week while everyone is having their Sunday afternoon naps. I’ve already had mine (the joys of having an early church service) and want to make use of the quiet time.

I realise that homeschooling one preschooler really doesn’t require that much preparation, but for my own peace of mind, things function a lot more smoothly when I have some idea of what I’m doing. It allows me to be more flexible.

I’ve decided to start out with Letter of the Week which provides FREE (an important word around here!) weekly lesson plans. The author has provided several levels but we’re going to start with the preparatory curriculum, which is really just introducing the letters, shapes, colours and numbers. My 3 yo will already know some of these things but I figure it’s never a bad thing to review. There are 26 lessons (to match the 26 letters of the alphabet), each with a different theme. I’m just going to take it week by week and if she’s really progressing faster than the lessons, then we’ll probably move on to the next level.

This week’s theme is COWS, so I’ve printed off a picture of a cow and a calf, as well as a couple of colouring pages of cows. My girl is really into colouring, so I’m sure she’ll like that part. I’ve got a few extra things planned, like making pretzels in the shape of an A and visiting a friend’s farm to see the cows.

I realised as I was planning that it’s really not that much extra stuff beyond what we’ve been doing naturally, but I have a plan so that I can be sure to do those things that I’ve been wanting to do just haven’t done yet.
