Preschool Homeschool Curriculum

Are you planning to homeschool your child beginning at the preschool level? Are you not quite sure to where to begin or what materials to use? One of the benefits of homeschooling is the freedom to choose materials that work for your children. No single curriculum is a perfect fit for every family. Even within my own family, I have added or removed materials from my first kiddo through my fourth kiddo. In general, I use a variety of workbooks and other resources for my preschool homeschool curriculum. The following are the workbooks that I am using with my fourth and last child. If you are interested in any of the materials, easily find copies on Amazon via my affiliate links.

I began homeschooling my oldest daughter when she was 2.5 years old. I started homeschool preschool with my son a few weeks before he turned 3 and my second daughter when she turned 3. I plan to begin preschool work with my youngest daughter around age 3 as well. One benefit of homeschooling is the freedom to work at the pace of the child. My oldest daughter spent two years doing preschool work a few times a week before starting kindergarten. My son worked on his preschool lessons four or five days a week until he turned 5. My third kiddo finished preschool around her fifth birthday as well.

Of all the materials that I have used over the years with my children at the preschool level, my favorite is Teach a Student to Read: Letters and Graphemes, which I wrote for my thirdborn. As a linguist, I consider spelling one of my academic passions. Before learning how to read, children must first learn the letters of written English. Letters are the raw materials for making the graphemes and markers that spell words. My workbook teaches the letter names and shapes followed by an introduction to the most common English graphemes. Using the workbook with my third preschooler definitely helped her learn to read and write easier.

General

Introducing preschoolers to educational workbooks can set the foundation for a lifetime of learning and curiosity. The right workbooks can engage young minds, reinforce fundamental concepts, and make learning an enjoyable adventure. From colors and shapes to early reading and math skills, a well-structured workbook can provide a comprehensive, step-by-step guide that helps children grasp basic prekindergarten concepts. The following are the general preschool workbooks that have proven effective and entertaining with my children.

Comprehensive Curriculum of Basic Skills, Grade PK guides preschoolers step-by-step through a variety of engaging and developmentally appropriate activities that cover basic prekindergarten concepts such as colors, shapes, and opposites. The 544-page full-color workbook features vivid, full-color illustrations and grade-appropriate activities for phonics, reading, language arts, writing, and math. The workbook provided my preschoolers with fun educational activities and instruction at the preschool level.

My children love Curious George, so I included Curious George Adventures in Learning, Pre-K in our preschool curriculum. Recommended for students between the ages of 4 and 5, the 320-page workbook features twelve new mini-stories that provide context for math, reading, and science practice that strengthen foundational skills in math, literacy, and science. My daughter completed one section at a time while my son and I worked on a few pages at a time.

The Children’s Learning & Activity Book from Liqui-Mark features 40 pages of skill-building exercises, alphabet and number practice, and more. I like that the writing activities are primarily tracing-based because preschoolers are better at tracing when learning to use a writing utensil. Tracing reinforces the letter and number shapes better than having such a young child make the letters and numbers on their own. (Not available via Amazon.)

Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are essential for preschoolers to lay the groundwork for many daily activities. Developing these skills through engaging and hands-on activities not only enhances coordination and dexterity but also fosters creativity and concentration. To support this critical aspect of early childhood development, I incorporate several cutting and pasting workbooks into our preschool curriculum. The following are the workbooks that have been particularly effective for my children.

Let’s Learn to Cut from Spectrum Early Learning builds fine motor skills and teaches basic skills through fun cutting and pasting activities. The 64-page full-color hands-on workbook offers step-by-step instructions children age 2 and older.

Handwriting

Handwriting is a crucial skill for preschoolers, laying the foundation for effective communication and academic success. Developing strong handwriting skills involves fine motor control, proper penmanship, and an understanding of letter formation. To help my children master these essential skills, I have incorporated a variety of engaging and educational workbooks that offer a range of tracing and writing activities designed to build pen control, line tracing, and letter recognition into our preschool curriculum. The following are the workbooks that have been particularly beneficial for children for handwriting development.

For fine motor skills related to handwriting, I used a number of workbooks including the Trace & Write Activity Book from Scholastic which provides 32 pages of colorful, kid-friendly activities.

Color and Shapes

Introducing preschoolers to colors and shapes is a fundamental part of early education. Learning about colors and shapes not only enhances the ability to recognize and categorize objects but also lays the groundwork for more advanced concepts in math and reading. To make this learning process engaging and effective, I have incorporated several interactive workbooks that feature hands-on activities about colors and shapes into our curriculum.

From Spectrum Early Years, Let’s Learn Colors & Shapes helps the youngest learners work on fine motor skills while learning about colors and shapes. I like that each activity includes detailed parent instruction that help me teach the basic concepts to my preschoolers. The 64 full-color pages offer super fun hands-on activities that I have not seen in other preschool workbooks such as sprinkling salt over glue on the white snowflake activity.

Language Arts

Introducing preschoolers to language arts is a crucial step in fostering a love for reading and writing. Early exposure to letters, sounds, and simple words sets the foundation for literacy and effective communication. To support this development, I have carefully selected a range of comprehensive and engaging preschool language arts workbooks that provide a balanced mix of letter recognition, grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs), and prereading activities, ensuring a thorough understanding of the English writing system.

I created the Teach a Student to Read series to teach my kids starting with my second to teach the English writing system completely and accurately. The first book in the series is Letters and Graphemes, which teaches the 26 letters of the English alphabet and introduces the most common English graphemes. Before learning to read, a student must know the letters of the alphabet. The primary goal of Teach a Student to Read: Letters and Graphemes is to teach the names and forms of the letters of the English writing system. The secondary goal is to introduce the student to units of letters (graphemes) spelling sounds. Students will learn that two or three letters together can spell one sound. The workbook finally introduces students to the concept that not all letters spell sounds.

I have used multiple DK Workbooks for multiple grade levels. I thus purchased DK Workbooks: Language Arts, Pre-K to use during our second years of preschool lessons. The 60-page workbook includes activities on upper and lower case letters, rhyming, simple reading exercises, and other fundamentals of language arts. The activities provided additional practice on topics that my children had previously learned.

The 60-page workbook includes activities on letters of the alphabet, letter sounds, and rhyming words, among other pre-spelling activities. The workbook contains quite a bit of handwriting practice and letter recognition, both of which are essential skills for later spelling.

After teaching my preschoolers to write and identify the letters of the alphabet, I used Skill Sharpeners Reading, Grade Pre-K to continue working on prereading skills necessary for learning to read in kindergarten. Each of the twenty-one units in the 144-page workbook contains a cut-and-paste activity that introduces a consonant sound and three activity pages that reinforce reading readiness skills. The cutting activities help build the fine motor skills needed for writing. I especially love that the exercises are unique and not found in other similar reading or writing workbooks.

The activities are different from exercises found in other alphabet workbooks, adding variety to homeschool time.

Math

Introducing preschoolers to math is essential for building a solid foundation in numeracy and problem-solving skills. Early exposure to numbers, shapes, and basic math concepts can make a significant difference in their cognitive development and future academic success. To make learning math engaging and effective, I include a variety of interactive workbooks that offer a mix of tracing, counting, and hands-on activities that are designed to reinforce early math skills in a fun and educational way into our preschool curriculum.

Recommended for learners age 2 and older, Let’s Learn Numbers offers step-by-step instructions for teaching numbers 0 through 25 and counting.

Science

Introducing preschoolers to science helps foster a lifelong love for discovery and learning. Early science education involves exploring basic principles about the world, from understanding the weather to recognizing plants and animals. To create an engaging and comprehensive science curriculum for my children, I have incorporated a variety of preschool-level workbooks that cover fundamental scientific concepts through interactive and age-appropriate exercises. The following are the workbooks have been particularly effective in introducing my preschoolers to the wonders of science.

For science lessons for my preschoolers, I used the workbook DK Workbooks: Science, Pre-K because I quite like the DK Workbooks series in general. The workbook contains exercises that focus on the most basic principles of science including animals, plants, the five senses, weather, seasons, and matter.

Social Studies

Introducing preschoolers to social studies with a focus on geography and map skills is a wonderful way to expand their understanding of the world. Learning about different places, directions, and landforms helps young children develop spatial awareness and a sense of curiosity about their environment. To make these lessons engaging and effective, I have selected some interactive workbooks for our preschool curriculum. The following workbooks provide foundational knowledge of geography through fun, age-appropriate exercises, ensuring that learning about maps and globes is both enjoyable and educational.

My children love globes and maps. For our preschool geography lessons, I used the workbook DK Workbooks: Geography, Pre-K as one resource for our social studies lessons. The 60-page workbook topics include directions, globes and maps, landforms, and more. Although not important to me, the workbook supports the Common Core State Standards.

Health

Introducing preschoolers to concepts of health and the human body is essential for promoting well-being and understanding personal growth. Learning about the body empowers young children to develop healthy habits and fosters a sense of body awareness and self-care. For preschool health, I used Early Bird Body starting with my third child. The workbook includes three colorful storybooks along with fun activities that provide age-appropriate practice of language, math, and fine motor skills. Topics covered relate to the body, growth, and health. Engaging language, math, and alphabet card activities develop fundamental reading and math readiness skills.

Art

Teaching art to preschoolers is vital as it fosters creativity, self-expression, and cognitive development.

Each chapter provides biographical and background information on a specific artist followed by fun activity ideas to expand on the lesson. The book is further categorized into themes ranging from studying nature and observing everyday life to breaking traditions and telling stories.
