Games I Use

For our daughter’s preschool I have done a lot through games.

I got flash cards and magnet (letters/numbers). A simple cookie sheet makes the magnets stick so the child can match them to the cards. 


For shapes/colors I got construction paper and cut out shapes. Then colored some clothes pins with markers to match. For white I had to cut out paper and glue it in. Also, my construction paper didn’t come with brown. This is also good for motor skills with using the clothes pin. 


The beanbags I got from Amazon. I use the bucket so she can throw them in the bucket once she gets the bag I ask for. Our daughter loves to have me move the bucket so she has a moving target. 


These popsicles are from Amazon. She can go by color or letters. Each popsicle has 2 letters one on the front and one on the back. Very well made in my opinion. 


Egg shapes are from Amazon. Each egg is a different shape and two eggs are the same color so she can’t just go by color alone. I like these because they are really sturdy. The case isn’t sturdy though. 


LeapFrog Fridge Magnets are great. They have a song for each letter, a sentence using a word starting with the letter and a word starting with the letter. Plays the alphabet song and a little bit of Wheels on the Bus.

You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…

Daily Schedule: Toddler

She doesn’t wake during the night or take naps because then she’ll stay up forever.
