20 Best Tips

Printable Pack Changes ~ Understanding Skill Levels

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

You may notice a few gradual changes in some of my printables over the next few months. Nothing major ~ it’s just a way to better help you all out and better understand the skill levels of the printables.

The bulk of my printable packs are currently labeled Preschool Packs. As I’ve worked with Kaleb and created printables to use with him, I’ve gradually increased the difficulty of some things and added new ideas. While some of the things in the packs are definitely preschool skills, some of them are targeted more at the Kindergarten level.

PLEASE hear my heart on this ~ the point of these printables is to give you a little extra ‘something’ to do with your kids, not to make you think your child is behind or not keeping up with the rest! Because I don’t want there to be any confusion in what are ‘age-appropriate’ skills, my early learning printables will now be labeled ~ and if your child is ready for the next level, print them out and have fun!

Most of my printable packs currently have two file downloads {due to their size} and in the future they will labeled to look a little something like this:

~ Fall Fun Printables ~ Preschool

~ Fall Fun Printables ~ Kindergarten

Same fun printables, just labeled a little differently to help you all out a bit more! Make sense? So if you see a few changes here and there ~ don’t panic!! It’s all still the same fun stuff, but just getting a little makeover to make it more user-friendly. :)

In the very near future, Carisa from 1+1+1=1 and I are going to each be writing some posts talking about things that are age appropriate for preschool and kindergarteners {Carisa is a former kindergarten teacher and I was a preschool teacher}. This all has been on our hearts lately and we’re hoping that it will help some of you all out as well.

  1. Great idea!!

  2. You are amazing! Thanks for sharing your gift with us :-)

  3. Yolanthe,
    Thank you soo much for all that you do!  I am a retired grandmother of preschool triplet boys who I am preschooling.  Homeschool creations is often the first place I look for materials.

    Many Blessings!

    You are so giving and I am really thankful that the resource is available!  Thanks for all you do :)

  5. You truly try so hard and do such amazing things with all of your printables.  

    • The biggest thing is I don’t want anyone looking at one of the packs and thinking “My preschooler can’t do that!! I must be doing something wrong!!”

    • I know what you mean.  I was trying to think of a way to respond on that one that didn't come off in the wrong way.  It is so hard to post what you're doing with your kids and have people think they're always doing these amazing things.


  6. I totally understand and agree with you!!!  I simply love everything you both do!!!  Keep up the great work!!  :-)

  7. Shannon Fangmeyer says

    I really appreciate all the printables you make and share with us. Thank you for the clarification. It will be easier now to sort through what we will and won’t use. Thanks again!

    • Just be sure to look at both packs! :) I usually print off only the pages that we use, since we use some from both packs {the vocabulary words will still be in the preschool packs, etc… and we always use those!}.

  8. LouanneMason says

    Thanks. That is really sweet of you to do.

    How fortunate for us that my son is close to the same age or skill level as yours, so I get the benefit of the increasing difficulty!  I think what you’re doing is great and tell my friends about your site all the time-even if their kids are a little older than preschool.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, it’s so generous of you!  Can’t wait to read those posts from you and Carissa! :)

  11. Nellie Baggett says

    Can’t wait to check them out! What ever you do is so amazing: I’m thankful for any and ALL of it. I’ve printed off so much between this blog and 1+1+1=1. My kids love to do the “same” work (Tot School and early Kinder) and never know I divvy up the same preschool pack. I am excited for the more advanced Kinder packs! Thanks so much for all your hard work! 

  12. Thank you so much for all the hard work you and Carissa put into to these!! You make things so easy for me and love that these include extra challenges for my daughter. She is right between pre-k and K and we will start K come this January. You and Carissa are amazing blessings for us during this interim time for us. Love the idea of separating between Preschool and Kindergarten. Thank you again and many blessings to both of you! :)

  13. Shay Gerritsen says

    Thank you so much for the kindergarten updates!! My Rhett is officially schooling this year as a kindergartner, but he’s almost 6 & a wee bit offended at all the “preschool” labeled things I have him working on to balance out the math & reading he does that’s a bit more formal school. Just the fact that he can read where it says “kindergarten” on it is enough to appease him & let me hang on to this fun work a little while longer! LOL So, again, THANKS! :)
