Many times toddlers and preschoolers are forgotten about when
it comes to schooling. In the article on Tot School by Carisa Hinson,
we learn how to intentionally spend time with our preschoolers
doing things that are fun and educational. Carisa also explains
how she keeps track of what her son is learning by using an assessment
sheet where she lists skills she wants to expose him to before
kindergarten. Once he has displayed a skill three times, she marks
One of my favorite articles was Music. I don't have any musical
background, so I'm always looking for ways to include music in
our homeschool. Some of the highlights from this article include
research on how music can affect our moods, and how it doesn't
affect our intelligence; b ible references to music; and a wealth
of information on how to incorporate music into your homeschool.
The article on Creative Things offers over 80 ways to keep your
preschooler busy while you are working with your older students.
Ideas range from something as simple as an etch-a-sketch to things
that require a little more planning, like filling a basin with
corn meal and putting in some small toys, games pieces, etc. for
your child to find.
As a mom of five children, I am always looking for ways to keep
my little ones occupied and happy while I work with the older ones. Creating
a rich Environment and a Fun Place to Learn for Pre-schoolers has
given me some great new ideas to use with my preschoolers. Coming
from homeschooling moms who have lived with preschoolers, the ideas
are right on target.
Creating a Rich Environment and a Fun Place to Learn for Preschoolers is
an 85-page e-book available from www.theoldschoolhousestore.com.
It is a compilation of 13 articles written by homeschooling moms. The e-book
covers a wide range of topics: organization, what to do with the preschooler
while teaching older children, field trip ideas, games and activities, and
much more! The authors write from heartfelt experience, and their wisdom and
passion for preschoolers is evident in every article.
This e-book was a delightful refreshment to me. I've read many articles on
the preschool age over the past several years and often find the same information
repeated over and over. Not so with this book. I found several new ideas and
was also reminded of ideas I have used in the past but had forgotten. Included
are many practical ideas and suggestions that are ready to be put into use
in the homeschool. The entire tone of the e-book is one of appreciating and
treasuring the preschool years. This is a book I will re-read any time I need
an extra dose of inspiration with the preschool age group. Whether you are
just contemplating the possibility of homeschooling or are several years into
the experience; whether you are homeschooling one child or many; whether your
learning style leans towards unschooling, Charlotte Mason, textbooks, or another
approach, this e-book has something to offer you.
