Preschool Curriculum

Several people have asked what preschool curriculum we use!  I don't actually use one specific curriculum, but I just pick and choose ideas to go along with my weekly theme.  With that said, I do know that often it is easier to have something already planned and laid out for you.  While I don't believe preschoolers need a formal curriculum (gasp!), direction is sometimes helpful. 

Here are several of my favorite preschool curriculum options:

coahbuttonErica from Confessions of a Homeschooler has a complete "Letter of the Week" curriculum available for download for just $10!  You can also search her site and find the links for free (if you want to take the time to do that), but it's easily worth $10 to have the complete set (over 1500 pages) on your computer!  Even if you aren't looking for curriculum, check out her site!  It is beautiful, well-designed, and full of great ideas!

Laura at Heavenly Homemakers has just recently released a complete curriculum entitled "Learn Your Letters...and Learn to Serve."  I LOVE her idea of a service project for your family every week!  The curriculum includes:  Learn Your Letters, Learn to Serve Book of ideas, instructions, recipes, tutorials and service planners - Alphabet Practice Packet - Alphabet Project Packet - Memory Verse Packet - Parent Planning Packet.  Laura also blogs about menu planning, recipes, gardening, and more!

Now is a great time to buy the "Learn Your Letters, Learn to Serve" curriculum.  Click this link and put the code BACK2SCHOOL in your shopping cart to receive 20% off (offer good through Thursday, August 12th at 11:59 PM CST)

1+1+1=1Carisa at 1+1+1=1 has a wonderful free preschool curriculum called Raising Rock Stars.  The curriculum is a journey through the Bible.  Carissa offers tons of free printables and activities (and I love her posts about photography) on her website!  Take some time to check it out, it is well worth it!

I have used ideas from Hubbard's Cupboard since my oldest was two!  It is a free curriculum with printable lesson plans for 2-5 year olds!  The 2-year-old curriculum is thematic (I have used it with my 3 & 4 year olds as well).  There is also Bible and Rhyme for 3-year-olds and Joyful Heart Character for 4-year-olds. 

Whew!  There are so many resources out there, it can be a little overwhelming!  No matter what you choose to do, remember to take time to play together, read together, and have fun making memories together!
