I have started to do very small amounts of homeschooling with my oldest. Not because I want to have a super smart two year old, but rather because she is smart and is already showing an interest in books. So, really, why not?
After a bit of research I found a curriculum entitle “Before Five in a Row”, a preschool version of a homeschool curriculum called “Five in a Row”.
Genius name, I know.
The curriculum is Christian and based on popular children’s literature, both of which I love. Rather than spending money and actually buying the curriculum this early in my little preschoolers academic endeavours, I have started to make my own units around the suggested books.
This week, I check out Blueberries for Sal from the library, and we have been painting, counting, and learning all about blueberries, bears, and other animals that hibernate.
(On a side note, if you haven’t read this book, it is very cute!)
As a field trip, I was hoping to take the girls blueberry picking, but the farm we visited had no blueberries left for the season. We settled for blackberries.
…while Clara and I were hard at work sampling them.
