As a former Pre-Kindergarten teacher and now stay-at-home mommy of 2 boys and a sweet baby girl, many people ask me how they can be implementing educational concepts in the lives of their young children at home before they enter school. Instead of trying to come up with a quick list of ideas off the top of my head to answer these questions, I have decided to put all of my lessons into this blog. I, along with so many other parents, want to be purposeful at home with my children and make the most of the time I have with them.
I hope that this blog can help, encourage, and inspire you to work with your kiddos and
get involved in the learning process! The benefits will be endless,
and the moments you share together will be priceless! As Dr. Seuss once said,
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"

Well, the summer is coming to an end!  We were a little busier than I thought we would be, so I apologize for only doing a few posts within the last 3 months.  Hopefully we can get back into a good routine, and I will blog more!

I don't even know if anyone still reads this blog or does the activities, but if you do, I would love some feedback from you!  My oldest son Sawyer has started 3 year old Pre-K every day for 1/2 a day.  Of course, I will still work with him at home on different subjects, but the majority of his teaching/learning will come from school.  I now have the mornings to work with my almost 2 year old.  I can continue to create lessons for Sawyer's age (3-5 year olds) that will become increasingly more challenging, or I can shift the focus back to toddlers and start on that level.  I can also try to do activities that are adaptable to multiple ages.  What do your children need/want?

Also, what format do you prefer? I can stick with the "summer thinking" style and have a specific subject focus for each day, or I can go back to the weekly themes.  I can even try something new.  Thoughts???

I want this to be a blog that is beneficial for you and your kiddos, so I would love your input.  Be honest, and let me know what you think...if you are still out there! :)

  1. I love reading your blog, Jennifer! You are such a precious teacher at heart and I love that you are sharing it.
    Jenna learns so much at school but you have fabulous ideas and resources that I have loved using a little bit at home (I loved printing out custom handwriting sheets!).
    Do what is best for you and I'll enjoy reading :)
