Homeschool Preschool Curriculum for 2017

The new 2017-2018 school year is quickly approaching. I am excited to officially began preschool homeschool with Ava! This will be an exciting journey for us, Ava is eager to learn and I am eager to teach! I decided to build my own curriculum for this preschool year. There are many free resources online and inexpensive resources in stores such as the Dollar Tree, Target, and Walmart. I would like to share a few of the resources that we will be using for this homeschool year.

My main focus for Ava for the first half of preschool is writing. I picked up these A+ Let's Grow Smart Workbooks from Target. The Beginning Sounds and Alphabet workbooks will help with writing and letter recognition. The Same or Different workbook focuses on patterns and early math skills.

Kumon is a great company for learning resources. I lucked up and found this never used coloring book at Goodwill. The tracing book came from Five Below. Five Below actually sells a ton of Kumon books.

Ava knows her colors so we will be reviewing those with the Disney book. I found the Learning Numbers With Button Bear book unused at Goodwill also and it teaches numbers and colors. The DK Workbooks Pre-K Science was a birthday gift and has simple science lessons for Ava to complete. I'll probably supplement the science workbook with a Youtube video, book, or a real world activity.

I've been picking up school supplies here and there for a couple years now and strangely I didn't have a writing tablet. Ava usually practices her writing in a dry erase book but that gets messy when the marker smears, so I found writing tablets at the Dollar Tree. I'm going to start saving the writing pages to track her progress. This lesson plan book came from the Target dollar spot. I'll be planning her lessons weekly but pre planning in a monthly planner.

We will be beginning sight words and learning a little bit of Spanish. I am also hoping to keep up with the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading logs, we read daily but I don't always write her books down. Lastly, we will be using daily folders. Once a folder is empty, Ava will realize that she is done with school for the day.

This looks like a lot of work but I promise it isn't! These workbooks are very thin and Ava will only be completing about 2 pages per day in addition to singing and music,  art, and out of the house activities. We will also be using free library resources such as Hoopla and Miss Humblebee's Academy, as well as attending story time at the library, and participating in gymnastics and a kids yoga class.

I am glad to share our homeschool journey with you all. Any seasoned homeschool moms out there? Feel free to leave some tips and advice in the comments! Until next time!

  1. Just wanted to say that your preschool curriculum looks amazing! Nice selection of books and resources. I haven't homeschooled, and my kids are younger than Ava, but I'm sure you will do a great job with homeschooling her.
