Homeschool Preschool Curriculum: Preschool Star

Do you want to prepare your preschooler for school but don't know where to start?

When I decided to become a stay at home mom and preschool homeschool my twins, I naturally went looking for a resource or curriculum that I could use.

The only problem was that I kept finding resources that were either too easy or too hard for preschool printables. I also didn't want to keep spending our precious homeschool preschool minutes searching online for the perfect printables everyday.

I also saw a lot of fun stand alone activities or letter of the week curriculum.  While those might be an option for a toddler curriculum,  for 3-4 year old preschoolers,  they need more academic focus.  Kindergarten is an important grade, so children need to be prepared.

So I decided to create my own curriculum.

Simple. Engaging. Educational. All for one low price.

What does a unit look like?

What age group is this for?

I designed Preschool Star for 3 to 4-year olds.

How is this different from everything else?

My preschool homeschool curriculum is based upon the Core Knowledge Standards,  which are research based standards for school readiness.
This means that instead of random activities,  children are learning necessary core skills for school readiness.

Is this a structured program?

Since I'm a stay at home mom, and I have 2 older children,  I knew I wanted flexibility.  I didn't want to deal with a heavily structured program,  but something that wouldn't take more than an hour a day.

It is flexible,  so you choose what you want to use. I also have a Pinterest board for each unit which includes supplemental activities. Note: Some programs make you pay for crafts they have copied online and call it a curriculum, and I didn't want to do that.

I also want to explore the themes and have my children enjoy their learning experience,  so I made each unit a 2 week unit.
Here is a sample lesson plan:

My curriculum includes printables that I created with the Core Knowledge Preschool Standards in mind.
 

What about Math?

Math is an important subject that just doesn't get a lot of time as much as reading.  So I created fun and easy homeschool preschool math lessons which include two grid games for each theme. Grid games are fun games that teach young children math skills by learning how to count up to 10, and up to 20.

I also include number and counting worksheets in each preschool theme unit, so your child is constantly reviewing their math skills.
