Kindergarten Curriculum For Pixie


kindergarten curriculum

I can’t believe my second child is ready for Kindergarten!  She’s been 5 since November and is still VERY fond of playing, but definitely ready for Kindergarten!  I remember when she started “playing” school with us just like it was yesterday.  She is the reason I’ve been creating more play based learning activities.  She is so much fun to teach, even though she creates a lot of work for me.  I wouldn’t change her for the world.  She is an amazing child!



 We began working on Kindergarten curriculum after Christmas, so she is really going to have a good foundation when we start up in August.  We’ve spent a lot of time on reading the first readers from Hubbard’s Cupboard which emphasizes sight words and word families.  These readers are challenging her just enough.  We will be doing a lot of other activities which will include journaling.  Here is the I Am Special journal page.

We’ll be working on Beginning Reading and Spelling Week 1 the first week in August.  These words are words that haven’t been introduced, so it’ll be interesting to see how challenging this week will be!

Here she is reading and highlighting sight words from her printable books this past year!

Along with my plan I have read aloud books that will go with our “Beginning Of School” theme.  You can see the books and lessons in my Beginning Reading and Spelling Week 1.

All Of The Rest

Math, science, projects, computer and more.  I plan on sharing our first week of school on here with you.  This post is just all about my instructal plans for the first week.  Homeschooling doesn’t always goes as planned, so I’m sure that I will have a lot to tell you after that first week!

    I think the clothespin is a great idea. Very hands-on and fun. Plus, endless possibilities.

    I just made a color book with my almost two-year-old. It wasn’t very expensive and I think it will hold up well!

      Thanks, Laura Lee! I had a Kindergarten teacher give me that idea!
      I just went over to your blog and I love it! I love your color book activity! I will have to try it with my tot/preschooler. It’s great to connect with you!
