My Awesome Husband and I were never planning on sending Nug to three year old preschool or four year old preschool. Before I became a mom I thought they were mandatory but then some older friends of mine told me that, nope, preschool is optional. So we decided to opt out ***GASP!***.
Nug is pretty much a non-napper these days but still has rest time up in her room. Right after I put Duder and Sweet Baby Jo down for the beauty that is nap time, her and I work together for about an hourish doing preschool stuff. We color a lot. We practice writing a letter. We say our Bible verse. We usually watch a youtube video about said letter. Depending on the day we do an activity. I then have her darn the socks, mend the trousers and sew her own clothes – okay, not really but isn’t that what most people expect when it comes to homeschooling? Long dresses, even longer braids and boys with beards? I doubt my Awesome Husband will let us go all Amish on him.
Here are some websites I have been using for color sheets:
Here is the site I found for easy Bible verses toddlers can memorize:
For her birthday she got dry eraser flashcards with numbers and letters so she can learn to write each of them. She loves these. They are by Kumon and I highly recommend them because they are easy for little people to follow, hold, and draw on. We also got some maze activity books and cutting books (can I tell you, this girl loves using scissors!).
We are on our second week of school and she can successfully write the letter A without any help, can sometimes sort of write the letter B (can trace it without problem on the flashcard), and can cut anything you ask her to with a smile!
