I’ve been very vocal over the past few years concerning the C-R-A-Z-E of thinking you NEED a preschool curriculum.
Every summer message boards are bombarded with questions from brand new homeschool Mom’s whose first born’s are entering the ranks of preschool. Honestly, what these youngins need most is to have plenty of time to play, get dirty and have Mom read to them — repeat, repeat, repeat.
But now I’ve done something and I need to come clean.
I…bought…a…curriculum…for……my….preschooler! Yep. I did.
Recently I reviewed a unit study with my 5th grader from Spirited Autumn Hope (an offshoot of Winter Promise). We both enjoyed this review and I couldn’t help but thinking how nice it would be to have a little help with the planning for my 4 year old.
It’s not that I don’t have enough ‘stuff’ for him to do. I just have a hard time planning it ahead of time. I KNOW what to do with him, I’m just lacking in the execution department.
I didn’t want to spend a ton of money. I was so taken with the reading selection and hands-on activities from Journey’s of Imagination (Many of which I already owned) that I bent my own rule.
So, I did it.
I bought the Guide Book.
I look forward to sharing our journey through this Charlotte Mason based curriculum!
