  1. Found your blog yesterday! I am a teacher and a mommy to a 2 year old. We are currently saving so that I can stay home with Luci next week and start homeschooling. Your blog is a true inspiration to me. Thanks for your ideas, creativity, inspiration, and excitement. Love the book recommendations too!Kara

  2. I recently bought your Letter of the Week curriculum and cannot wait to begin in the Fall with my four year old!Is there a particular order you recommend teaching the letters?Thanks for all of your super ideas!Angie

  3. I teach the vowels first, then the consonants. I did them in order of easiest to write, but since we do lowercase at the same time, it kind of doesn’t matter. But once they learn the vowels, you can start with beginning reading blend sounds like ta te ti to tu as you introduce each consonant.

  4. This is a good list..My favorite is "The Amazing Action Alphabet". It combines seeing, hearing and doing. Each letter is in the shape of an animal, like B the Bear who blows bubbles. The action is to pretend to blow bubbles while you say b-b-b.It's really effective and FUN!!Check it out:

  5. I am one of those moms gearing up for this fall. Firt year homeschooling! Excited, nervous, and trying to ORGANIZE! Can't wait to see what you are doing this year and so thankful you share your curriculum with others. A million thanks 🙂

  6. Hi! Great list…love all your ideas! Can you please share some educational and fun computer sites for 5 yr. olds? Seem like we always go to starfall or pbskids…they are good but need a change. 🙂 Thanks!

  7. Hi, greetings from the sunny island city of Singapore:)I am a stay home mum of a 2 year old girl and homeschooling her:) I thank God I found your blog. I am so inspired and I pray God's wisdom and strength abounds in you and that you be richly blessed!May I ask if my 2 year old girl will be too young to start the ABC/ 123 activities?:)

  8. Mymmycool: 2 might be a tad early to start, but it depends on your child. My 1 1/2 yr old does some of the activities just because she sees her sister doing them! You can always do some easy stuff with her now, and then add harder stuff next year, but you don't want to rush it, no need for her to start kindergarten at 3 ;o)
