2013 Preschool Curriculum

*Update:  I will be adding new workbooks and tools to this post as we acquire them, so do not be surprised to see changes!

I have decided not to send Xander to a traditional preschool.  Instead we will do home preschool activities.  Now that we have finished the Mommy and Me ABCs, I gathered together the list of a lot of the preschool materials and activities we will be using.  You can read about how I came to make the decisions I have here. I hope to cover the main subject areas (in bold) every week, but we will see how it goes.  We also plan to have a preschool backpack he works from every week.  Not every resource listed here will be used every week.  Also, this may seem like a lot of schoolwork, but Xander asks to do his "work" (his term, not mine).

*Note:  Keep in mind that my child is weird and asks for worksheets.  Not every two and a half year old would.  We also do not spend all that much time on them.  I give him one page at a time.  I pick the pages of each that are within Xander's abilities.  Also, I put them in dry erase sleeves so that he can redo them.
