Is my Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum a little too easy for your student? Are you ready for something a little more challenging? Then the K4/5 Kindergarten Curriculum is for you! The K4/5 Curriculum is geared towards kids ages 4-5 who are ready to start kindergarten (or have completed my Letter of the Week preschool curriculum) and want a fun hands-on kindergarten curriculum. The curriculum introduces beginning reading, math and handwriting skills that will give your student a huge advantage as they proceed through their elementary years.

I forgot to ask a couple of other questions. I know that each child works at his own pace, but I’m wondering, approximately, how long will it take to do the complete lessons plans each day? Also, what program are you taking from for the worksheets in this program, so I can review that, as well. I have researched synthetic phonics, such as Jolly Phonics and Phonics International, and these are amazing programs, but it would be so convenient if I had an “all in one” curriculum. I also wanted to ask if the order of all the printables are organized, like a huge, yearly workbook. Ei. Are all the printables in the order of the daily lessons, from Day 1 to the end of the year, or do I have to search through everything, and organize it myself. It would be great if it were all organized and set up, according to the daily lesson plan order, like a huge workbook. If not, I’m still very interested. It just seems like this would be a very overwhelming task, considering the amount of printables. The name of the game is to simplify everything as much as possible, as we are a super busy family. In other words, is this just a print and go program, that I don’t have to organize myself??? Thanks so much, again, for your time.
Hi Alana, I think it really depends on your child. Somethings come easier to them than others. I did post our general schedule here to let you know how much time I give her for each subject if that helps 🙂 http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2015/04/kindergarten-daily-schedule.html
The K4 kindergarten comes with daily lesson plans that tell you what to do each day. The worksheets all come in separated PDF documents, so you would need to print them, then pull out whatever worksheets/games are listed for the day in the lesson plans. It does NOT come pre-printed, so I think what you mean in like one giant workbook. I do have a post on how I organize them which might help: http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2013/08/k4-kindergarten-organization.html
Hi Erika! I have been using your preschool Letter of the Week curriculum and absolutely love it! My daughter loves it as well, however I am finding she is getting a bit bored now. I have added in a couple things to make it a little more challenging for her. I am most likely going to be doing kinder with her using your kinder curriculum. I started late February and took the same weeks off my older one had off so we are just going to be finishing up this month with it. I am wondering though with starting kinder should I wait till the new 2016 school year begins. Or is starting it at anytime still kind of ok? My daughter is only 3 1/2 so definitely has time. She just really wants to learn and in fact is already starting to read small words and do a little math. She’s doing great with tracing and can almost legibly write her name and some numbers!
Thank you for everything you do! Makes homeschooling her not as scary anymore! Lol
You can start it whenever you feel like she’s ready, you don’t have to do it at the start of next year. It might be a pain if she’s stopping an starting her curriculum mid-year in the future. But for prek/kinder it shouldn’t be a big deal. You just want to make sure she’s got all of her letter recognition and sounds down before starting K4. If she’s getting bored with the LOTW, maybe just move through the remaining letters a little faster and don’t make her do all of the activities for each one. Just rotate them out so she’s doing different games each week.
I just purchased this curriculum and I am so eager and excited to get started! I am planning my shopping trip to get the recommended supplies. I noticed that there are several binder spine labels and I am wondering how many binders I will need.
Hi April, I used one binder for the games, then several file folders to store the PDF worksheets in. You can see how I organized the sheets so they’re easy to pull out each day here: http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2013/08/k4-kindergarten-organization.html
So excited to get going with this! My DD is 5 and 1/2 but she is not on the Sept-October developmental schedule. We are finishing up LOTW by Christmas. Then we will start K4/5 in January. Love this and it’s so affordable too! Thank you for making it easy for new homeschoolers to ease into the journey.
Is this recommended for a Kindergartner aged 6?
Yes, if your student hasn’t gone through Kindergarten already you can use it to get them prepared for first grade even if they’re 6.
Can the Bible lessons be easily left out or is it incorporated into various sections?
Hello. I had a question about the curriculum
If I purchase the binder, do I need the cd also?
Hi, you can either purchase the curriculum in PDF format, or on a CD. We don’t currently sell hard copies of the curriculum. So the only difference is in the delivery method.
