I am so excited to finally be posting about what I’ve been working on.
As a homeschooler to a preschooler (ha, that’s fun to say), I’ve searched high and low for preschool curriculums that will be fun and engaging for my 3.5 year old. I have found many free downloads, free printables, paid entire curricula, and more.
The one thing I couldn’t find was an LDS based preschool curriculum. While I found a few a scant few downloads for LDS homeschooling, most of them were kindergarten-aged or older. Worse, they weren’t up to my all-important standards of cute!
What’s a girl to do?
Well, first I have to sing praises to this site:Confessions of a Homeschooler. Obviously, she has an awesome blog name. But beyond that she has literally hundreds of free printables for preschool and what she calls “K4″ preschool (harder than preschool, not quite Kindergarten.) You can download these printables for free one at a time, or you can download them in one easy link for a small fee. Inspired by her creativity, I began creating my own printables for my daughter. I sat down and wrote up an LDS alphabet– A is for Adam (and Eve), P is for Prophets, N is for… I forgot. Something about Nephi, anyway! Then I got busy with Photoshop and came up with a preschool curriculum I’m calling The Walk Beside Me LDS Pre-K Curriculum.
Currently, I’m using these as a supplement to CoaH‘s wonderful Letter of the Week Curriculum. She has so many wonderful activities and worksheets that it would take me a year to create the curriculum she has! Now, her curriculum is wonderful–and I do mean that wholeheartedly. And she has plenty of suggestions for involving Bible Study into homeschool; but I felt strongly that my daughter needed an LDS based curriculum.
I know what you’re thinking: am I going to share? Of course I’m going to share! I can’t be the only homeschooling mama out there wishing there was more for LDS families, can I? My *plan* is to create one Walk Beside Me packet each weekish, so you can follow along with your children at home. Even if you don’t homeschool, you can do each packet with your child without supplementing extra material. This is great preschool or kindergarten prep!
