The ABCs of How to Home Preschool
This is a visual summary of my week long ABC’s series on How to Home Preschool.
This seven-part series is a look at how a former National Board certified classroom teacher and reading specialist turned stay at home mom (that’s me!) is doing preschool at home with her own two children. It is much less a “how to” and much more of a “how we” as I do not believe there is any one right way to go about home preschool. My hope with this series is that it will encourage and inspire you to take an active role in your child’s life and early education. Regardless of your home and/or work situation, you ARE your child’s first and best teacher. Even if you are not planning to home preschool, I hope you will find tons of ways YOU CAN work and play with your child in this series.

Update: I originally published this post in January 2013. Now, 4 years later, I have a 4th and 3rd grader whom I am still homeschooling, and our family has grown by two. The little ones are already toddlers–time flies!–and have already started some preschool at home activities. I’m so excited to get to do another round of home preschool, so be on the lookout for lots of new content!
Additionally, to share activities that my grade school children are doing in our homeschool, I also write at Parent Teach Play. Be sure to head over there to find loads of great activities for elementary students, grades kindergarten through fifth grade.
