Preschool at Home : “Perfecting Preschool”, a 10 day series

preschool

I’ve been researching, studying, gathering resources, pulling all my old lesson planners out, emailing friends, and getting my preschool ducks in a row. It was only a matter of time until I shared it all with you!

As I was writing out all my notes for my preschoolers this year, I discovered that if I were to try and fit all the preschooly goodness in to ONE post, it was going to be a mile long.

“Mile-long” is no good – especially for busy homeschooling mamas. I’m pretty sure you have a life; am I right?

Plus, it has been over a year since I did my last series for homeschooling – the Accidental Unschooling series. It was about time!

Preschool has been the spark that got this old mama’s homeschool fire burning bright again. Teenagers, while they need their mom still, are very capable of teaching themselves with very little direction. After all, the objective of education is to teach yourself out of a job, right? Teaching them how to teach themselves?

Admission: High school is awesome, but mama isn’t as “needed” anymore. I have missed the joy and enthusiasm of preschool and elementary school. I love having tots to teach along with my very self-led teens!

So here’s the plan… are you with me?

I’m going to break my preschool ideas post in to TEN separate posts. You’ll have plenty of time to get your own homeschooling done and still pop in for a read.

Here’s my rough draft for the series:

Day 1: Learning Spaces

Day 2: Activities

Day 3: Schedule

Day 4: Toys

Day 5: Rules

Day 6: Books

Day 7: Circle Time

Day 8: Arts & Crafts

Day 9: Music

Day 10: Electronics & Apps

Doesn’t that sound fun?!

I bet you want to do preschool again, too.

Join me next week, starting Monday evening (after school is out and mama has time to get online). I’ll try and get a post done every day, ending on September 11th. [ As a side note, did you know I started homeschooling my big kids on the week of 9/11? This year’s commemoration will make a full 11 years that I’ve been homeschooling (we took one year off for private school when my oldest was in Kindergarten). ]

Do you have a preschool tip or resource – a post of your own – that you think would be beneficial to link up here? Shoot me an email! I’ll consider it. I can use all the exciting tips I can get to make this preschool year fantastic for my little munchkins.

I’m thrilled to be an old homeschool “dog” learning new preschool tricks. I’m thrilled to be starting over, even though a lot of my homeschool mom friends think I’m one fry short of a Happy Meal. I’m thrilled to see my little guys getting involved in the learning action at our homeschool house.

Homeschooling truly is a a way of life. I can’t imagine ever ending the journey of learning – no matter how old I get. I guess the person who said, “Having kids later in life keeps you young” was right. It sure has given me a boost for this school year!

Happy learning!

{ May you always have joy in your homeschooling. }

In Him,

Heather
