Product Description:

At the preschool level, life is school. While structure is necessary, much of learning can be done amidst the regular rhythms of life. This is the premise on which the authors, Kathy and Lesli (home educators themselves) base this wonderful resource. Rather than fit home life into school, school should meld into home life. Nine chapters help you focus on your educational priorities and help you visualize and plan what your learning environment (home) will become. These chapters focus on development, learning through play, building a learning environment, organization and special issues that don't "fit in the box. Then you'll find a treasure trove of almost 80 pages of activities encompassing home activities, science, math, language, art, socio-emotional, gross and fine motor skills. Directions are detailed enough and supplies are fairly minimal. Layered with wonderful, full-color pictures of the authors' preschoolers, directions, and recipes; and accented with personal notes from each author and wonderful educational quotations. Appendices include activity checklists, resources and detailed directions for making a light or sand table. 204 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

Good introduction to homeschool for preschool
This book is a wonderful introduction to preschool at home. The pictures are colorful and make preschool look like so much fun (which it is!) I like that it recommends the basic areas you should cover and also gives you practical ideas. It is a good book to get you started in your homeschooling journey and one I recommend to any of my friends who ask about homeschooling for preschool.
