If you have purchased my Letter of the Week Curriculum, or are considering it, here are some additional supplies you’ll probably want to use with the curriculum.

Things we use OFTEN:

 

  • Song time:
    Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol 1
    Hide ‘Em In Your Heart Songs – Vol 2
  • Leapfrog Letter Factory DVD
  • Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
  • Expo Dry Erase Markers
  • Pencils, Pip-Squeaks Markers
  • Scissors (kids rounded ends)
  • Magnets (I use Power Magnets, or pom-pom magnets – I made them using medium sized pom-poms and self-sticky circle magnets from the craft isle in Wal-mart. You can also use a glue gun and circle magnets, they’d probably holdup better!)
  • Wooden Clothes pins (I got little ones from Wal-mart craft section)
  • 1 ½ “ wooden disks from Michaels, hobby lobby, or JoAnn’s for the letter match games. (Note: you can also use left over milk caps) It’s also helpful to have a Xyron Sticker Maker so you don’t have to glue or Mod Podge all the letters on, but that’s totally optional!

  • Hole Punch (For the Lacing Cards)
  • A magnetic board of some kind: I found a colored cookie sheet at a used HS fair, but they have cute magnetic dry-erase boards that are small enough for workboxes in the school/office supply section at Wal-mart and Target.
  • Counters: You can use marbles, beads, bingo markers, beans, cheerios, glass pebbles from the craft store, matchbox cars, dinosaurs, really anything you think your child will like. I have a few different ones just so I can switch them out.
  • Yarn or string for lacing

Optional Items:

  • Laminator: You can either laminate at home, at a local teacher or office supply store, or not at all, it’s up to you. If you do choose to purchase a laminator, which most homeschoolers find quite useful, I recommend this one, you can find it at Wal-mart and Sam’s Clubs. It’s about $30 for the laminator and $14 for refill packets.

  1. I just purchased your K4 curriculum. I have a Master’s in SpecEd. I am going to home school my three year old who is quite gifted this fall. I can’t believe how thorough and wonderful your curriculum is! I have been researching curriculum for months and yours is amazing! You have saved me countless hours!! There is no way I could have afforded a curriculum of this quality…What a blessing!!!
    Thank you so much!
