5 Resources for Homeschooling Preschoolers

With all the homeschooling resources available to parents today, it’s very easy to homeschool your preschool aged child. Here are some resources to get you started.

Preschool Curriculum

In preschool, children learn their shapes, colors, number and letter recognition, and basic writing skills. Some preschoolers even start learning how to read, although for some children this skill isn’t mastered until kindergarten.

While it is not necessary to have a set curriculum to teach a preschooler these basic concepts, there are curriculums available that can help make teaching preschool easier.

Many preschool curriculums have been prepared by homeschooling mothers who have experience homeschooling their own children. Curriculum such as “Learn and Grow: Hands On Lessons for Active Preschoolers” by Michelle Caskey gives you step-by-step instructions for each lesson so that you don’t have to spend hours preparing your own lesson plans.
