Each week, I’ll present a different resource that will help you in your endeavors to teach your preschooler at home as cheaply as possible, or even better – FREE! Or, I’ll introduce you to another great website to assist you in living an abundant life on a not-so-abundant budget. So, without further ado, here’s this week’s fine pick!
What Your Child Should Know
Here’s a great FREE online resource that I think is very handy for homeschoolers (even though it’s geared for (public/private-schoolers”). It’s What Your Child Should Know in Kindergarten, by Miriam Myers at GreatSchools.net. This is the most concise list I can find anywhere, and I’m checking it to make sure Laynie is prepared for Kindergarten (homeschool). I’m feeling pretty good right now – she can already do all but 8 things on the list, and she’s only 3!
If you’re unfamiliar with this website, it is a place where you can find lots of interesting information about public schools. When I used to work in public schools, I used this site to research the schools I was applying to work at. Click around – is your local elementary school listed? The school where my child would attend is, along with some interesting parent reviews. It really is a handy website, all around.
Got older kids? There are lists for the following grades, also published at GreatSchools.net.
