Max's Preschool Learning Plan

Earlier this year as I began planning Max's preschool learning plan I was confused as where should I start. Chris and I prayed, attended homeschooling conferences, read books, talked with other homeschoolers but I still felt inadequate and overwhelmed. Then God reminded me why we want to homeschool and I came across FiveJs' website that gave practical ideas on homeschooling the early years

As I started gathering the learning materials {mostly from what we already have at home and the library}, I feel excited, humbled, fear, and nervous at the same time. I love teaching from the very young to the college ages so I am very grateful for opportunity and privilege to teach my own kids. We take schooling one year at a time. We'll continue to pray and evaluate how it works for us and the kids year by year. As for now, Max will continue to attend Chinese School 2 times a week and learn at home the other days.

Thankfully, I read FiveJs post about Scope and Sequence prior to planning my own. The Scope and Sequence below is only used as flexible guidance. I want my children to love learning, learn at their own pace, follow their interests, and learn important life skills.

Resources Books for us {the parents/ teachers}:

Max's Preschool Learning Plan:
Bible: Bible reading using: The Story For Little One and Wee Sing Bible Songs 
Math: Counting 1-20, learn about hour, simple addition and subtraction
Reading: Teaching Reading and lots of reading aloud {mostly from the library}. Some good books list
Chinese: exposure and daily conversation
Practical Life - daily chores, learning life skills
Writing: penmanship, drawing, cutting, art & craft ( lots of ideas from pinterest)

The numbers chart was from Three R's book and I made the subjects lesson plan on Microsoft Words with images from google. I then laminated them that way Max can mark it with erasable marker and wipe it off when we start a new day.

Practical Life






"Good parents give their children Roots and Wings. 
Roots to know where home is, 
Wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught them." Dr. Jonas Salk

A sweet friend shared this above quote. Prayerfully, we can be that parents who give our kids strong roots as their foundation and wings to fly.
