Curriculum

Hello there!

As many of you may or May not know, I run an in home preschool. I have been doing it for almost 10 years and love it. One of  the difficult things about having the same  kids year after year is finding curriculum that will be different from the years past. Let me tell ya, it can get difficult.
      A few years ago I discovered Funshine Express curriculum.  The curriculum comes right to your door all packaged by date and all ready to go. This has been a life savor. They provide a teacher packet that comes with a guide with questions, what activites to do on what day, games, worksheets that goes with the themes.  They also provide a calender, numbers, letter and shapes of the month and a weather chart.  I get giddy when I see that brown box on my porch.


 I enjoy getting it and if you ever struggle with curriculum for daycare or homeschooling . Funshine has it  for all ages. I currently am using fireflies for ages 3-5.

Today we learned about the letter A and the sign for A in sign language. We did a letter A worksheet and practiced out A's.
The kids enjoyed playing a game where they roll the dice that has numbers 1-3 on it and they have to move that many spaces to get to the school. We discussed who got to the school first and last. This game also taught them how to take turns and wait patiently for their turn.






We also made a collage using all different kinds of things to introduce Art and how by using many different things is called a collage art.

I will post  in a separate section of all the things we do using Funshine express so if you ever needed some ideas, they will be there.

Have a super Monday.
