Kindergarten Daily Schedule

kinderdailyschedule.jpg

A few years ago I did a series of posts titled Daily Homeschool Schedule for you all. Since then I’ve had countless questions about our updated homeschool schedule, and specifically for my kindergartener since I didn’t do one at that time. You can see a basic overview of our daily schedule here. You’ve also been asking questions about how long we do each subject, how many days per week, and what our day looks like hour by hour for each grade level. So I thought maybe these posts would help out! So for the next few weeks I’m going to share our schedules in a more detail by each grade level so you can see what we’re up to. Today we’ll be taking a quick look at my kindergartener’s schedule. We do a co-op on Friday’s so her calendar has Friday’s blank.   Download a copy: Daily Schedule Kindergarten – PDF Daily Schedule Kindergarten – Word Doc (Editable) Here’s our Basic Kindergarten Schedule: 8:30am   – Breakfast / Family Devotion Time … [Read more...]

Kindergarten Worksheets and Phonics Activities

IMG_0900web.jpg

good morning readers! It’s been a little while since I did an update on what the Teeny Tot is doing. We just got back from spring break and she’s been working diligently on her kindergarten year. She’s reading well now, and still having fun doing all of the K4 Kindergarten activities along with some other fun things that we add in here and there. So I thought I’d take today to give you a little snapshot of what she’s been up to. She loves to do mazes, and so she’s been working her way through my K4 Kindergarten maze worksheets this year.   She also likes to do puzzles. Since she’s our last little one to go through the curriculum, I just printed the K4 Number Order Puzzles on copy paper, and then she cuts them apart along the lines. Next she reassembles them onto a piece of construction paper and glues them down to complete the puzzle.   Of course we’re working our way through Math U See, and she’s having fun with her blocks as usual!   To help with … [Read more...]

A Day in the Life of a Kindergartener

IMG_1413web.jpg

Happy new year everyone! School is officially back in session and we’re all rip-roaring ready to go! Well, kind of. Mostly we’re still mentally on vacation. But… We have to start sometime or we’ll be doing school over the summer, and no one wants that! So I thought I’d take time today to do a Teeny Tot Tuesday post. It’s been a little while since we’ve check in with our favorite kindergartener, so let’s take a peek into her day and see what she’s been up to! The not so teeny tot has been doing well in her Math U See Primer curriculum. She’s learning to use the blocks and has most of them memorized now. She’s well into basic addition and getting used to the concept of adding numbers together.   I’ve also mixed in some of my K4 Kindergarten work for her this year, so here she’s working on one of my A-Z handwriting worksheets.   She actually went through all of my K4 Letter Hunt worksheets last year, but she loved them and requested to add them in again this year. … [Read more...]

What’s in the Workbox Wednesday: Kindergarten

whatsinthebox_thumb.jpg

Hi everyone! I hope you’re enjoying my What’s in the Workbox Wednesday series. Today we’re taking a peek into the Teeny Tot’s kindergarten workboxes. Right now it takes her about 2 hours to complete her work each day. Some days take a little bit longer because she sits in with us for Science and history. And no, I don’t make her do any written work or tests for those, she just listens in and does crafts with us whenever possible.   Drawer #1: Supplies, Daily Schedule, & Bible 1) Like everyone else, her top drawer houses our expandable drawer organizer and it holds all of the pencils, glue, erasers, scissors, and things she uses on a daily basis. It hangs on the drawer sides, so it can slide back and forth out of the way which is a nice feature. It also expands/contracts to fit most drawer sizes. 2) This drawer also holds our Picture Smart Bible student notebook, which is going great so far. This curriculum is great for elementary aged students. but we do this … [Read more...]

K4 Kindergarten Activities Update

IMG_0727web.jpg

Hi all! Looking for some kindergarten worksheets and activities for your 4-5 year old? Look no further! The Teeny Tot is well into our K4 Kindergarten curriculum and I wanted to share some of her day with you all!   Right now she does a mix of activities to work on a variety of skills each day. Everything you’ll see in this post comes with my K4 Kindergarten curriculum unless otherwise indicated. I also have a bunch of freebies on my Kindergarten Worksheets page too!   Beginning Sounds: In this activity she is working on her beginning sounds and lowercase letters. The curriculum comes with both upper and lowercase worksheets for her to practice. She says the sound that the letter on each line makes, then circles the pictures that also begin with that same letter sound.   Shapes: She’s also building a shapes booklet where she displays all of her shapes and traces over the written version of each shape as well. Sometimes she decorates them with … [Read more...]

K4 Kindergarten Activities

IMG_0792web.jpg

Good morning everyone! I thought I’d share some more of what the Teeny Tot (yes, we’re looking for a new name for her) has been doing this week! She’s finally in my K4 Kindergarten Curriculum now and doing well. Here’s a little glimpse into what she’s working on these days. Missing Numbers: This kindergarten math worksheet is a great way to help with number recognition, counting skills, and number order. The worksheet comes with missing numbers  and number tiles. She’s cut the number tiles and glued them to the appropriate apple to complete the numerical sequence.   Uppercase Beginning Sounds: Here she’s working with beginning sounds. So we sound out the letter to the left of each column. Then we say the name of each of the items in that row. She then circles the one that begins with the same sound as the letter shown. This might take your student a little bit of time to get, but just stick with it and help them sound out each one putting emphasis on the beginning … [Read more...]

Kindergarten Activities

IMG_9981web.jpg

Good morning! I thought I’d do another update on the Teeny Tot for you all today. She’s reviewing some of her favorite Letter of the Week activities, and we’re slowly adding in more of the K4 Kindergarten activities to her day as well.   This week she mostly worked on the Letter E games. Here she is with her completed elephant lacing card. I’ve had a lot of questions about laminating and printing on cardstock. And unless you’re going to re-use your materials with future children, there’s not much need to laminate and print everything on cardstock. But for the lacing card, it is important that it’s somewhat durable. So if you’re not reusing materials, I would say at least laminate this card if nothing else.   She knows her colors quite well, but still enjoys doing these color matching puzzles.     These are the elephant counting cards. She put them in numerical order, then counted out the correct amount of beads to go on each card. You … [Read more...]
