When I was beginning to homeschool Mickey in preschool I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. She was almost 4 by the time I actually started with her. I did not know about how many resources there were at my fingertips on the internet. So I bought a boxed curriculum and used it and was satisfied.
Now I am starting with Nate. He is barely 3 1/2. He sometimes likes to be included in school and sometimes would rather we not interrupt his play. I view it as he is 3 and the boy needs his play and he learns through play. So I am okay with where he is. We will have plenty of time to “do school” in the years to come.
Now on the days that he wants to be included I need something that will be fun and encourage learning. He LOVES to have his “schoolwork” to show his daddy. I found Alphabet Lap~n~Note from Homeschool Share. There are small activities for little ones to learn the letter and glue and color pictures of items that begin with that letter. Sometimes there is a finger play included. Nate has loved these activities. They are short and sweet and great for his short attention span. He is also very proud of his work.
