Walk Beside Me: After the Letter Z?

Walk Beside Me Introduction


It thrills me to no end that we’ve completed the Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool homeschool curriculum. It was a huge goal of mine that I worried (many, many times) I wouldn’t ever accomplish. Hate to brag (ha, right), but I’m so proud of myself for completing it. I’m happy my little girl loved it and learned so much during the year about her ABC’s, as well as wonderful Gospel stories.

My question for you is…
what’s next?

I have many ideas, and hopefully at least one solid idea in the works. I’d like to know though, what would you like to see as a follow up to the Walk Beside Me Preschool? I have toyed with the idea of reformatting the alphabet to include only short sounded vowels, (keep A is for Adam, change E is for Enoch) then make five additional weeks to the curriculum that are focused on the long sounded vowels.
{I’m having trouble coming up with gospel themes for short e, i, o, and u sounds though!}

While I’m happy to do that, provided I can think of some Gospel themes to match those letters (any suggestions?), for the most part, I’d like to move on. My daughter is ready for Kindergarten level work, and I’d like to keep the gospel theme going. Ideally I can incorporate the Gospel into all of our years of homeschool, whether I create the curriculum or not!

What would you like to see as a follow up to Walk Beside Me Preschool? Would you be interested in a long vowels addition, or are you ready to move on too? What about a ‘tot school’ version of Walk Beside Me? Leave a comment and vote for one of these options, or even better, suggest your own!

If you’re new here and want to learn more about my LDS-based Gospel curriculum for preschoolers, go to the FAQ page here, the Introduction page here, or A is for Adam here!

Thank you all so much. I’m so excited to hear what you have to say about this!

    E is for Esther
    I is for Individual Worth (the worth of a soul)
    O is for Options (agency and choices)
    U is for Understanding ________ (fill in the blank)

    I would love to see an advanced version! Or anything gospel and homeschool related really.

    • That’s an idea that actually never occurred to me: smaller units or printables or something. I don’t have to do an ENTIRE curriculum all planned out. :D I really love to overwhelm myself with biting off way more than I can chew. Thanks for saying you’d take pretty much anything over what’s currently online for homeschool. That being: almost nothing! I’m working on a K(ish) program, but I’d love to use artwork that I could possibly use commercially. I would never outright sell my stuff, but much like I do with FHE Made Easy: giveaway weekly chunks and sell the entire curriculum via download. Anyway… I like that units idea. I could work with that! I hope! :D

    Since you already have Esther, what about E is for Elder. Another suggestions is: I is for Israel.

    I like the idea of having both long and short vowels. But I would love something for kindergarten/first grade that is gospel based. We try to have a devotional at the beginning of our school day and having a song and scripture to learn and memorize is such a blessing. I have tried to base our work off of the seminary scripture mastery but it is too difficult for the little kids. The scriptures are too long. I need something more accessible to a 5 year old.

    I found you on Pinterest yesterday. I am just like so many others, looking for something with LDS version of something to teach my daughter. Since I have a 20 month old daughter, my vote is for Tot Version. I was torn between Hands On Homeschooling and Letter of the Week.com. I was planning on starting her when my daughter turns 2 years old. But I would love to see what your Tot Version would look like.

      Is it odd that at the moment in which you called Justin &##âu6;2€œNotQ1iteAOL”&88217; I felt more sorry for him than I did all those times I knew it was him getting hurt/almost getting hurt doing crazy stunts. Poor Justin.Kimmer 2, NJ/Justin 0.

    I am like Lacey, who stumbled upon your website on pinterest. I just want to thank you for creating these resources! What a blessing!

  7. Bethany L says:

    I love the lessons. I have a 2 and three year old sothe tot verson would be good. I hope you stay withthis blog, and the lessons.
    Thanks for the pre-school help.

    I’m SO excited that I just found your website!! I can’t wait to start working on the alphabet with my little one. I’ve always liked to incorporate the Gospel into all of our homeschool subjects, but it never occurred to me to also include it with the basics – the ABCs! I’m so excited!! Thank you!!!

    I have been printing different pages from each of your LDS Preschool Curriculm kits and putting them inside sheet protectors and taking them to church to as a quiet book (We use dry erase crayons and then it wipes off easily for re-use). Triple bonus: learning ABC’s and writing skills, learning gospel principles, and staying quiet during church! I would love any type of additional printables that would be great to take to church that are gospel related. I love your stuff and am so thankful you offer it for free!

    Wow, I was going to post as Tristan did, but she beat me to it. lol.

    Enoch and the city of Enoch and his righteousness; Earth and it’s many wonders, the earth was created for us to gain a body.

    Isaiah
