Review: What Do Grown-ups Do All Day?

The book What Do Grown-ups Do All Day? came with our 2018-2019 Timberdoodle PreK Elite Kit. It goes through 14 different job sights and explains each job within them. The explanations aren’t to long so it’s easy for kids to grasp the concept of each job. Even though it only does 14 job locations it showcases different jobs for each place. For me there was a huge downside. The very first job sight is a school which I don’t mind but it never mentions that some families homeschool. As a homeschool mom I’d love it if this book also included this way of doing school.


Since the book doesn’t mention homeschool I found a book called This is My Home This is My School by Johnathan Bean. To better explain that some families send their children to public school while others, like ours, do school at home. What I do like about What Do Grown-ups Do All Day? is seeing which job our daughter would like to do if she was on that job site. Or having a great one-on-one conversation about what each job entails.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. 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.
