I Am Happy to Report That There Are More Homeschool Friendly Choices for Preschool
By homeschool friendly, I mean the type of curriculum that is written with consideration for the busy homeschool parent. They feature easy to follow lesson plans and teacher guides, beautiful student workbooks, and a solid Christian foundation.
What to Look For In Preschool Curriculum
- Formatting and Pictures – This is important for preschoolers because they are very visual at this age. I don’t like too much busyness on a page. A page of work should be short and simple.
- Easy-to-Follow Lessons – A lay-flat teacher’s guide with the day’s lesson plan on the open pages is nice, but I really like the student workbooks with the teacher/parent instructions on the page. It makes a busy mom’s life a lot easier.
- Covers the 3 R’s – It’s all about learning the basics to lay a good foundation for preschoolers. Preschool isn’t that complicated, but make sure it isn’t so cutesy that it leaves the academics.
- Solid Christian Foundation – If you are a Christian, then start teaching them your faith when they are babies and keep the ball rolling with a Christian-based solid preschool curriculum.
Having more great choices for Christian preschool curriculum is timely for us because our grandchildren are starting their second generation homeschool journey.
I hope it is timely for you as you and your preschool children start your homeschool journey.
Hope this helps!
