Taking a gentle developmental approach to learning, this open-and-go curriculum by Master Books focuses on 4 areas: Bible, Rhyme Time, Life Skills, and ABC’s (learning the alphabet and basic reading skills). Scripted lessons are organized around a three day per week schedule. Names, sounds, and the formation of letters are taught, and activity pages include one line each day for handwriting practice. Other activities for the day might include making a mini alphabet book (included in the back), coloring, tracing, Bible and poetry reading, learning a life skill, and much more. Math Lessons for a Living Education (or another math curriculum) would pair nicely with this resource to make it a complete curriculum (not including science or social studies). An eager preschool student would also do well with this program; however, the lessons might have to be spread out between 2 days (depending on attention span). The pages are perforated and three-hole punched and reproducible for homeschool use only. Using a simple and fun approach with a Biblical focus, this is an easy-to-use and engaging curriculum promoting activity-based learning for your young ones. ~ Donna
Too often, our littlest learners are expected to achieve, despite not having reached critical levels of readiness. It is so important that they are taught with an approach that assesses and addresses their stage of development. This course includes helpful tips, games, a biblical focus on lessons from God's Word and how we can live for Him, ideas for extended learning, and activities, all based on skills developed through play and interaction.
There are 4 areas of focus in each lesson:
- Bible: Biblical stories, character teachings & memory verses with motions
- Rhyme Time: Fun poetry, vocabulary words & letter recognition
- Life Skills: Weather, emotions, safety/emergencies, hygiene & more
- ABC's and More: The Alphabet, learning to write letters & basic reading
A schedule is provided highlighting the instruction for this 3-day-a-week course. A master supply list is also included. The prep page at the beginning of each week provides the lesson's focus at a glance.
