Home Preschool

Welcome to Gratituesday! Today, I am thinking about how truly grateful I am that I can take a break from my career and raise my children. We have a 2 ½ year old, 16 month old, and a new baby on the way. Life can be a little busy these days, but my husband and I are soaking up all the fun that comes with raising a young family.

Last week, I started doing a home preschool program with my oldest child. I was a little nervous at first because I am not a trained teacher, but I soon realized that there is a lot of material on the internet to help. I also have the added bonus help of having two sister-in-laws that are teachers and available to give me tips.

My daughter knows how to say her abc’s, she can count to 30, and knows her colors. So, we started with learning how to recognize the upper case and lower case letters using fun coloring worksheets. She is having fun learning at home.

This Gratituedsay, I am thankful to be a stay-at-home mom and a home preschool mom! If you have any tips on what material to use for home preschool, I would love suggestions.
