20 Best Tips

A Laid Back Week ~ Preschool Corner

Whenever we finish up one of our preschool units it seems that the week that follows is so laid back/slow in comparison. While we may not be actively DOING as much as we did the week prior, we are still squeezing in a lot of learning ~ just in a different style. :)

Truthfully, I’m really liking this alternating week schedule because it gives me a chance to prepare for the next week and we can still digest some of the things that we did the week prior and we get to use a few ‘curriculum’ items that we put to the side when doing a focused unit.

Bible: We did two lessons from the Beginning with God devotional to go along with the Beginner’s Bible. We’re alternating doing one lesson and then the next day reviewing and adding in a coloring page. We need to purchase a new Beginner’s Bible since somehow our Bible managed to completely fall apart this week {go figure…it’s on the 4th kiddo}.

Reading: We did several more lessons in our All About Reading Level Pre-1. The favorite activity from this is rhyming {and Ziggy the Zebra is also a big hit!!}.

Language: We did 3 more lessons from Language Lessons for Little Ones from Timberdoodle to use. Kaleb is doing a MUCH better job of answering questions too! He is still loving the Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park, one of the new Leap Frog dvds.

Writing: Kaleb has been having fun in the Kumon Lowercase Letters book…and I also found that he had practiced writing his name on our deck. Very largely.

Math: We’re using the calendar daily to keep practicing Kaleb’s counting and also for identifying numbers. He’s having fun learning the names of other coins {other than pennies} and helping out with that part of our calendar too. He is also using the Kumon Book of Numbers.

Next week we’re going to be studying BIRDS!! What have you all been up to this week?

  3. We did birds last year. You can see all our posts here http://theadventuresofbear.blogspot.com/search/label/birds

  4. Our Beginner’s Bible only made it through one kid before falling completely apart. My second son was so thrilled to get his own copy that I didn’t mind buying another one!


    Do you think it’s possible to use the student materials & books w/o buying teacher’s guide of All about reading? I have The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to teaching reading & am a former teacher…

    • for the level pre1, I think it’s really helpful to have the teacher’s
      guide. Not sure how you would do the program because pretty much
      everything is outlined and detailed in the teacher’s manuals. We’ve
      been using the level 1 and 2 readers with our older kids and the
      teacher’s guides will be coming out starting in June for those. Right
      now we’re just using them as readers.
