Homeschool Preschool Curriculum

I have a Preschooler!

My son turned 3 this summer, and this year we have decided to start implementing a more diligent “education schedule”.  So in September we started doing Preschool 4 days a week.

I was homeschooled during late elementary and high-school, and had a wonderful experience. I firmly believe in the importance of being in control of your children’s education (whether that be homeschooling or just being involved in their public or private school education) and I will write another post on why I plan on homeschooling my children. But for now I thought I would share what we have planned for Randsom this year!

I am blessed with a supportive family that is extremely knowledgeable about homeschooling (both my husband and I were homeschooled by our amazing mothers!). My mother in law blessed us with the main curriculum that I plan to use this year. It is a Lesson Book  by Memoria Press that uses popular children’s books to make teaching preschoolers easy and fun. If you purchase the set from Memoria Press, it comes with the work book and all of the children’s books, but you could easily just purchase the work book/teachers manual and borrow each book from your local library.

This curriculum is broken down into weekly lesson plans. Every week you and your student go through one new book. Each day there is a new lesson that goes with the book of the week. The lessons start with a short prayer (which I think is important to teach from a young age!) and talking about the day/date/weather. You go on to Alphabet and Number lessons, which are provided for you in the work book. You also have sections for Oral, Language, Literature, Fine Motor, and Gross Motor skills. The best part is that each daily lesson only takes about 20 minutes! This is perfect for preschoolers who have a hard time doing one thing for very long. There are also lots of suggested activities for each week that you can add on your own to keep your child engaged and remembering back to the lessons.

Ransom has loved participating in his Preschool work so far. I have also enjoyed watching him be more challenged through out the day. It has been wonderful that the program is only 4 days out of the week, which leaves room for outside activities, and makes it easier to keep up with if someone is having an off day. We have also implemented a few other books and activities to this curriculum. I have loved using these Star Wars Workbooks to add a little more to each day. And obviously, Randsom is obsessed with Star Wars and always willing to do these.

I will report back after a few months on our experience and if I still love it as much as I do now.

  1. I loved working with my preschoolers at home. A great resource to teach them to read is “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons”. Start it at age 3 – 4 and they’ll be reading great before age 5!

    1. I will check that out! Teaching my littles how to read is one topic that gives me anxiety. Thank you for sharing, Amy!

    1. Thank you, Shahla! The Star Wars books are such a fun tool. I wish you the best of luck in your homeschooling decision!

  2. I had no clue they made Star Wars workbooks! That’s awesome! I went to public school and there’s so much superfluous crap and so little real substance taught in schools. Homeschooling sounds like a great alternative. Good luck!

    1. They are great workbooks! We love them, and try to do them every day!
      There are many great reasons to homeschool (but cons as well). Hopefully I will do a post about it soon. Thanks, Jen!

  3. Great job mama!! I homeschooled my oldest for a few years and was so blessed to have a circle around me of people who encouraged it! I would still be homeschooling if it wasn’t for them getting into this amazing charter school! My little guy turns 3 this winter and I will start teaching him as well!

    1. Thanks!
      Its so wonderful that they are able to go to a great school! I think I would love that, if I could find a school I liked!

  4. This is great! I’ve never heard of this curriculum. I started homeschooling kinder this year, and our preschool years were very relaxed, so it’s been fun actually getting into a curriculum. I have a 3 year old that just kind of hangs out while we do school, so I need to look into this curriculum, it looks awesome!

    1. Its a great program, and it doesn’t take up too much time. That way if you are busy with other things, its not overwhelming! I hope you are having fun homeschooling!
