I am a supporter of boys waiting an extra year to begin Kindergarten.
Since we homeschool, the freedom to do so is really easy and the power is totally in our hands.
When I began homeschooling back in May of 2012, I purchased a literature and bible based preschool curriculum for Matthew. He was only 3 at the time. That first year we did not do a heavy amount of work. I really believe in letting children lead the way.
The curriculum was all story time and play time together. I love that, but I am ready to add in workbooks. Matthew just turned five and I think he is ready for that.
This will be our final year of preschool, we will start Kindergarten once he turns six.
Let me show you what we’ve chosen.
Alpha Omega Publications offers an all inclusive preschool curriculum (as well as other grades) called Horizons. Have you heard of it?
There is a thorough teachers guide with thirty six weeks of teaching materials.
All subjects are broken down and include things like memory verse, math, shapes, colors, writing, language arts, music and more!
There are additional teaching resources like these alphabet sheets that can easily be laminated and turned into flash cards.
Here is what the student workbooks look like.
I love the DVD episodes about Character Building and the 10+music CDs with worship music.
Matthew is enjoying watching these videos.
