It's never too late to start again...

Last year, my home preschooling attempts were an utter failure (may have had something to do with the newborn... maybe). This year I am hoping for better results - mainly on my part!

This week we talked about the Letter "W", and I got the impression that my three year old was not impressed.

Letter W

"What's this letter?" I asked, pointing to the "W" flashcard on our word wall. 
"Oh mom. That's a "W"," responded the too-smart for all this nonsense three year old - who later told me that the upside down "W" is an "M" like monster....

To make things worse, she wasn't even interested in "washing" her play kitchen dishes - my activity planned for the day. Oh well. 

So, I needed a little inspiration, and boy did I get it! 

Keeper of the Home and other Homeschooling bloggers are currently offering a Homeshooling Omnibus - 53 ebooks about everything from organizing and planning your homeschool to actual lessons for your kids. I love this collection because of the huge quantity of toddler/preschool curriculum included. The best part is the price! Only $25! But hurry if you want it - the offer ends tomorrow.

I have already downloaded and looked at quite a bit of the package, and I have already gotten some good ideas on how to expand my techniques and hopefully better engage my daughter.

  1. LOL! That's funny! I'm amazed at all the stuff my 3 year old is picking up without any formal lessons. Thanks so much for the link to the omnibus. I ended up buying it too, ironically more for the non-homeschooling e-books than the homeschooling ones. One book I LOVE is Project-Based Homeschooling by Lori Pickert. You really don't even have to be a homeschooler to get something out of it. It's a great read!
