*Used this with our twins and Hayven, but as I had more and more children I was home educating, I didn’t want to spend the time on all the extras of it so we picked to continue the Reading Lesson, their book packs, handwriting, and the Bibles they suggest.

I hope this post INSPIRES YOU! It’s not meant to be a formula you follow, but a springboard for you as you craft what works best for your family! Preschool and Kindergarten shouldn’t take more then 30-1hour of “formal” schooling a day.

Enjoy it!

You’re learning how to teach just as much as your child is learning how to learn!
