A is for...

I have decided to start "homeschooling" W part-time until he attends preschool in the fall. We will only work 1-2 hours in the morning, and hopefully extending hours in the afternoon. However, I don't want to overwhelm him right now, and want to slowly introduce "school time" into our daily routine. This week we are going to focus on the letter A. I have already printed off a few worksheets/trace sheets, and have been given some great craft ideas from a friend and my sister-in-law (she will graduate with an elementary education degree this spring). I have some other ideas with letters, like making our own Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom tree to go along with the book, numbers, shapes, and colors. I hope to add onto our "alphabet wall" in our kitchen, and then create a small scrapbook of all of W's accomplishments and worksheets. This process is definitely a slow one, but I'm so excited to get started and instill an early childhood education into the minds of my children. I'm hoping to share our "lesson of the day" each day on here, as well as link back as to where I learned of our activity/lesson.

For now,


  1. That's great!! Kudos. I plan/want to do that with Andres once he's 3. Good luck!!

  2. An AWESOME preschool curriculum, the one I'm doing is Letter of the Week by Confessions of a Homeschooler. That would give you TONS of activities and things to do with W :) Check her blog out!
