      1. I was looking at doing this for my soon to be 3 year old. Two questions:
        1. How do you transfer the stuff to get printed online and who do you recommend?
        2. If I buy this month… Will I get an updated calendar or should I wait till the star of the new year?

        1. I usually recommend http://www.thehomeschoolprintingcompany.com as they offer very affordable printing costs. I believe for them you can upload your files. They are familiar with my website, so if you let them know I sent you over they may be able to do a special for you. You can purchase whenever and then when you’re ready to get the Daily Learning Notebook, your coupon code will still work to get the current version.

  1. I love this curriculum! I’m a certified teacher, but quit teaching to stay at home with my babies. I’ve been teaching my 3yr old since she could talk really, but have just this year started doing a set, day by day, “school” time with her. What I love about this curriculum is that I can print the items (I purchased the cd) that she needs to work on, and skip the parts that she already knows. Its excellent material and easy to follow. I look forward to moving her into the kindergarten curriculum this fall!

    1. I usually start at around age 3-3.5, but it’s also up to your child and when they’re ready 🙂 My teeny tot started playing with them when she was only 1.5 just as a way to keep her busy while we did school LOL!

  2. Would you recommend this for a child that will be 5 in December but never had formal preschool yet? I’m planning on starting his more formal schooling this fall, and was planning on doing the letter of the week curriculum, but I see you would recommend k4 for his age… he doesn’t know all his alphabet letters yet…

  3. I love the program. I got the CD long before my grandson would use it (we will start this fall) Is there alternative for the valentine V? I was thinking I saw that you had a download as an alternative for the Holidays. You do lovely work

  4. Hi Erica,

    I have a little girl who will be 4 in a few weeks and I can’t decide if she needs to the LOTW program or the Pre-k. She knows her shapes, numbers 1-30, colors, she can write her name, and she’s starting on letter sounds. Can you please advise?

    1. If she knows her letter sounds all VERY WELL, then you could potentially start with the Kindergarten K4/5 curriculum. That one moves into reading after a quick review, so she would really need to be familiar with her sounds and be reading ready before doing that. Also consider if you move her ahead now, then she will continue to be a grade ahead as she gets older. From our experience, the workload and mental focus needed for higher grades really picks up in about 2nd -3rd grade. So while she may know her sounds, she might not be ready for the maturity needed if you put her in ahead of where she normally would be. That said, every child is different and some are ready for more challenge earlier. I’ve found that my kids tend to do better, understand material more thoroughly etc, by keeping them on grade level for the most part.

  5. Hi Erica, I bought the Letter of the Week curriculum two years ago, and wanted to use it again, but can’t find it on my computer anymore! My son with autism is always moving stuff around and deleting things by accident. Is it possible to download it again?
