I will be sharing two curriculum posts- one for my son and one for my daughter. So be looking out for my PreK choices coming up soon.
Daily Learning Notebook- FREE from Confessions of a Homeschooler
I usually add things like word search, some math printables and writing
Reading- We had to change our reading curriculum because what were using was not working well enough for my son to grasp some key reading foundation skills. So we switched to All About Reading starting in Level 1.
We will also keep working in The Reading Lesson.
We are no longer using Learning Language Arts Through Literature.
*Language Lessons for Little Ones Volume 3 from Queen Homeschool
*Printing with Pictures Book C and D from Queen Homeschool
*Lessons in Manners for Copywork from Queen Homeschool
Spelling- All About Spelling (see my blog post here!)
Creative Writing- Write Shop Primary Book A (we love this program!)
*We will use Math Lessons for a Living Education Volume 2 from JellyBean Jar Publications

For PE we will try to go outside and do some running, play at parks, climbing, jumping, games with balls, riding bike and anything active. We also do exercises in the house, run the stairs and some fun kids yoga videos.
We also will be writing in our journals several times a week using ideas from This Reading Mama and The Measured Mom.
This year I'm going to try a block schedule. So basically I'm going to do split the year into 6 terms. During each term I will do Language Arts, Math, Morning Time and 2 extra subjects. If I don't get the extra subjects done, that's OK.
So for my son the first term we will do Language Arts (Language Lessons, Handwriting, Reading), Math, Morning Time, Science and Music.
I was trying to come up with something simple so I can fit the many things in, but not all at the same time. I watched this webinar by Pam Barnhill and Sarah Mackenzie that inspired me greatly.
I do a lot of learning things at meals like verbal math, Bible stories, read-alouds, questions and answers, memorizing. I also do some of these things during Morning Time.
