This year is a big learning year for your preschooler! Make the most of it with these lesson plans that help you establish that all-important foundation for your child’s success. With two years’ worth of lesson plans, you can start your preschooler off right in learning his numbers, crafts, phonics, and language development.

* Suggested Daily Schedule: Never have to guess what to teach or when!
* Parent Overview: Includes a brief description of each subject, teaching tips, and ideas on how to make learning fun.
* Music, Poetry, and Finger Plays Schedule: Use this guide to help your child learn—and maybe even perform!—fun poems, songs, and finger plays.
* Weekly Lesson Plans: Provides a quick overview of concepts to introduce, stories to teach, and new skills to emphasize.
Language arts programs listed in this section cover most areas of language arts (reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting) in one curriculum, although some skill areas may be covered with less intensity than a focused, stand-alone course.
Leading in Christian education for over 40 years, the Abeka® curriculum distinguishes itself by implementing spiraled instruction, consistently reviewing content and skills within a specific subject and integrating these across the core subjects. In addition, Abeka’s regular pattern of course material revisions help to keep the curriculum effective and relevant. Geared specifically to your child’s development, these bound, Full Curriculum Kits provide the essential materials for the core subjects (English, Math, History and Science). Full Curriculum requires the purchase of a Parent Kit and a Child Kit and will include the main textbooks, Teacher editions, quiz and test booklets, answer keys and more.
The Abeka® distinctives start very early and flow through all levels, such as a cursive-first handwriting approach (starts in K and reviewed up to 6), thorough grammar (with diagramming), foundation-based composition skills (begins in 1st grade) and listening/speaking skills (including reading aloud and poetry memorization). All with Christian, patriotic-focused content in a spiral format with detailed teacher instruction. In 1st grade, skills introduced in previous years (phonics/reading, optional cursive, poetry, and vocabulary skills) are enriched with creative writing and sentence-level mechanics, weekly spelling tests, and oral reading. In Grade 2, transition to reading comprehension and beginning literature analysis occurs. Grade 3 begins the four-pronged emphasis of reading skills (analysis & discussion), writing (academic & creative), spelling/poetry, and grammar. Grade 4 (Level A) adds speed reading, the writing process, researching, and diagramming. Students refine all skills in Grade 5 (B), aiming for varied reading and writing (emphasizing research skills), as they head for Grade 6 (C), which cements the elementary skills in preparation for Abeka® upper-level courses.
Plus, just to get started with 2 year olds, I need to also purchase alphabet flash card sets, plus number flashcard sets, plus felt hand puppets, plus song books, plus felt numerals, felt objects, and "Animal Alphabet Friends with CD", "Growing up with Amber Lamb Visuals", " Language Development Visuals" (for 3 year olds, page 40) "Fun Poems and Finger Plays", "Fun Songs" with a sing along CD available for purchase, etc...all listed on the introduction pages as essential materials, available at Abeka.
If you get the idea you will see this Preschool Homeschool program will cost a great deal of money to use, without which the Lesson Plans book is not useful. I am very disappointed that Rainbow Resource Center did not disclose when I found this product on its website that this book is only a supplemental guide that needs all the other products at great expense from Abeka to make it work.
