What We’ll Learn
My 8-week/6-unit course focuses on the critical curricular areas for your 2.5 to 6 year old.
Unit 1: Rhythm & Routine
As we begin our adventure together, we will spend a bit of time settling into our new community setting. We will compare and contrast homeschooling to a classroom setting, try out some techniques for observing and documenting, and then get centered on a daily rhythm & routine that works for our own, unique families.
Unit 2: Sensorial & Music
Children are born with extraordinary sensitive eyes, ears, hands, and mouths, just waiting to explore the world! In this section, we’ll talk about each of the five senses and how to best engage them for cognitive development.
Unit 3: Practical Life & Art
It’s all about the practical! Everyday activities, such as watering a plant, pouring water, and preparing dinner can be enormous avenues for the development of fine motor skills, care of the self and the environment, and social awareness.
Unit 4: Language
Put on your “listening ears” because in this unit we’re going to get at the heart of how children learn to read and write! Hint: the ears lead the way, and the hands continue the process! (This is a 2-week study.)
Unit 5: Mathematics
1-2! 3-4-5! 6 little bees in a big beehive! Counting numbers out loud is just the beginning. Just wait until we talk about how fun it is to add giant numbers like 9,357 + 3,819! (This is another 2 week study.)
Unit 6: Geography & Science / Cultural Studies
The whole world will open up to your child when you introduce the subjects of geography, geography, zoology, and botany. We’ll talk about how these subjects are integrated with all the other areas to form the heart and soul of your homeschooling curriculum.
Continued Community Support
Course discussions will remain available in the group for you to review as needed. As we conclude our 8th week together, all members will be invited to pose questions to the community, share resources, and chat freely. The group itself will stay open as long as the community is active and engaged.
