Good morning everyone! For today’s Tip Tuesday I’m sharing my tips on what to teach when homeschooling your preschoolers! In this video I share quite a few ideas, and of course I wouldn’t recommend trying to accomplish all of the items I’ll be listing in one day! The goal for preschool is to offer your child a wide variety of activities that will cover many different skill sets in any given week.
Homeschooling a preschooler is probably one of the most exciting times. They’re excited to learn, and keeping school fun at this age is a must! While there aren’t any specific curriculum requirements for preschool, I encourage you to focus on creating a love of learning and keep your curriculum to the basics.
Preschool is the perfect time to start because you and your child will have the opportunity to grow and learn together. In essence, preschool is a very forgiving year. It’s a time to try new things, enjoy time with your child, create fun art, make mistakes, change the way you do things, get a schedule figured out, and in a nutshell get acclimated to homeschooling. I like to use the preschool year to help students get used to a little more formal schedule without the pressure of having to do a certain amount of hours or days. It’s a nice transitional year from free toddler playtime to more structured homeschooling.
So grab yourself a tea and sit back while I share some of my tips for homeschooling your preschooler! Watch this week’s Tip Tuesday: How to Homeschool Your Preschooler here!
