My homeschool preschool experience has started.
This year has seen a lot of growth for my little ones as I take a firmer hold on their education by introducing more learning through play into their days. I have always had the feeling that I would homeschool them and never really looked into it fully. Today I want to share with you the many resources that have given me insight into this new world and are to become a part of the coming years of homeschooling.
I do not follow a specific curriculum but rather take what I feel is right for my kids. I must confess that both boys are late talkers and as such we put the little extra effort into that area and I take that into consideration as I plan our days.
I have a 1 year old who is extremely curious and wants to see what her brothers are up to when we do activities or crafts. She is receiving the benefits of learning from play a lot earlier than her brothers.
On to the awesome learning advice!
Once you have decided to homeschool all the choices out there can be overwhelming. I still feel overwhelmed sometimes but feel solid in my decision to present my children with the various methods I feel they will enjoy and learn from based on their personalities. Right now we are still in the preschool area of learning and learning through play has a strong presence.
Feels like home shares her experience and has some homeschool Preschool advice as well as Kindergarten and First Grade. Another awesome approach that appeals to me is a Homeschool Preschool Co-op which sounds like a fun learning experience AND you get support with other moms.
I can teach my child has a 2 part series on her blog titled How To Homeschool Preschool. I find some of the Montessori approaches to preschooling appealing, you are able to read here on How to Start Using Montessori at Home and How to Set Up a Montessori Homeschool Classroom.
As a first time homeschooler I really enjoyed the info shared by Sharla from the Chaos and Clutter with 10 Things I Would Tell a New Homeschool Mom also be sure to check out her post on Using Pinterest in Homeschooling.
Fantastic fun and learning shares their schedule for Home Preschool 2013-2014 with us and I also found the advice eliminating obstacles before starting a new homeschool year relevant as well as how to organize for Back to Homeschooling.
Lastly, I love this message to parents who think they could never ever homeschool their kid.
The internet is so full of awesome resources for teaching and growing with our little ones, I encourage you to follow the blogs mentioned in this article as well as my Pinterest board for Kids Learning & Homeschooling for new ideas as I find them. I also have many, many other boards such as Printables, Letters & Colors and Activities & Crafts. Don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter or follow by email to keep up to date with what I am doing in the homeschooling with my 3 kids.
I wish you the best in your homeschooling adventures!
