Homeschool: Kindergarten End of Year

Our kindergarten year started in January 2020 and is about to end (December 2020). We went with Timberdoodle Curriculum again this year. I set certain expectations at the beginning of our year after going through all the items in our custom kit. So the big questions are: Did Timberdoodle deliver on their kindergarten curriculum? Do my child learn enough? Do I feel she has retained the information and is ready to move onto 1st Grade?

This school year was a bit rough. We took off about 3 months in the beginning of the year because of an extremely hard pregnancy. I was worried that by taking off so long that our daughter would forget most of what we went over. However, she remembered everything. I strongly believe it is due to Timberdoodle’s excellent choices in curriculum. The items we received are fun and engaging for kids. By having so many hands-on and interactive items it makes learning easy and our wanted to do school more than once a day. She’d constantly ask to do more school even if we already finished school for the day! For a 4 year old to want to do school instead of playing with toys or iPad is a huge example of how much fun Timberdoodle truly is for kids. 

Do I feel our daughter has learned enough for kindergarten? Most definitely! She is on par with the 6-7 year olds in our homeschool group. And after looking up what school district goes over for kindergarten I realized our daughter learned a lot more than our local public school. 

Do I feel she should move onto 1st grade work? Yes. She has mastered everything she needed for kindergarten. We recently went over all the reviews (I do one covering each 6 weeks) and she remembered everything. Even after taking off 3 months at the beginning of the year and 2 weeks off after my c-section. She is able to do all the goals I set at the beginning of the year. Some of the goals I had she surpassed. It’s an amazing feeling to know your child is learning and retaining the information needed. It’s all thanks to Timberdoodle for offering such a wonderful selection of curriculum.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
