Preschool June 2011

I just realised how long ago I posted a preschool post.

We are still using Horizons Preschool program. While looking around at our K curriculum for next year (My obvious choice is Sonlight K with MUS Primer for Math) I started looking at samples for math and writing and realised our Preschool curriculum is actually a bit more advanced as we are already doing so many of what is taught next year!

The only struggle I have with this program is that Elijah is not really ready for ALL the writing that they require from him so I adjust so much of our worksheet requirements. He writes very well to me and I am thankful for the Jolly phonics program we have used in the past to gently introduce phonics.

What we have been up to:

Playing with Light: reflections, shadows (Sundial) and some fun with flashlights

Creating Numbers for Days of Creation:

Living things collage

Some fun with straws and paint

Exploring a small rock collection to marvel at the wonderful world God created.



This post features on the South African Carnival of Homeschool Bloggers where South African home schoolers share experiences, ideas, philosophies and much more.  You can join the carnival too by heading to the South African Carnival of Homeschool Bloggers sign up page.   In the meantime, head to the Hayes family where the carnival is hosted this week.  We hope you enjoy the carnival as much as we have!
