Homeschool - Week 3 & 4

Noelle is rocking preschool. Four letters down, four Bible verses, and four super fun weeks. During week three Noelle learned letter U (for umbrella) and we started working more on numbers and math. Week four was letter I (for inchworm) and I started a new approach to our daily lesson plan which is working out well for us. 

Pledge of Allegiance 
How to teach your child the days of the week in a day:
Bible verse
Review of previous letters and sounds
Review letter of the week, sound
Sort big letter and little letter
Review numbers, colors, shapes
Play a couple of number games
Complete a few pages in the workbook
Sort biggest to smallest
Return to the letter of the week with tracing
Read a book (or two or three)

It usually takes about an hour and a half each morning. Some days more when baby brother wakes up early from his nap. After Noelle's nap she usually asks to "go to school" so I started assigning her homework! Well, more like "homework." I put out a few pattern tracing pages for her and let her work on them while I make dinner. She loves it. 

Here's some photos of her learning:

Letter I Bible verse:
Jesus says, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
John 14:6

Do you homeschool your little one(s). I'd love to hear about it!

  1. I think it is so great that you are working with her at home, and that she is enjoying it! When my little one is a bit older, we will be doing this too. :)

  2. Hey!
    Great ideas for home schooling!
    I'm a new follower! I found your link on Paisley Passions Wandering Wednesday Blog Hop.
    Hope you stop by for a visit!

  3. That sounds really cool! Just curious, what made you decide to do it yourself? I may need/want to do that with my little one(s) in the future! :)

  4. Hey there! I guess I decided to go ahead and start a "curriculum" because I have so much fun teaching her and I wanted to have a more structured program. She was definitely ready and capable. I'll probably send her to preschool a couple days a week when she is 4. She just turned 3 last month.

  5. Very Interesting, Love it! Nice site, I will be sure to come back to visit! Check my Blog Hop on we would love for you to link up!
