  1. Hi, I just came across your site and really appreciate you sharing your experience and knowledge. Could you let me know where to find the worksheet your son is working on in the picture above, where he’s tracing the letter “v”. Also, do you have any recommendations on good “pattern recognition” activity books?

    Thanks, Cindy

  2. This is exactly what I needed! I just had to pull my 2.5 yr old out of daycare/preschool as I lost my job. There are thousands of activities to try, but this is a good guideline of where she should be and what we should practice next. Thank you!

  3. I really liked this. Thanks so much Angela for sharing this.

  4. Well thank you for this post. I teach preschool at home to my 4 yr old and soon to be 2 yr old. My in laws are pressuring me to put my oldest in a preschool but I haven’t found one I like and that is affordable. She is totally on track and is ready to go into kinder next fall. I HATE that being at home is looked down upon and I keep being told that she will fail in school if I don’t get her in somewhere soon. I am profoundly hurt and feeling disrespected as a mother and a teacher! I taught pre K and kindergarten for several years before choosing to stay home with my babies. Thank you for helping me feel encouraged and giving positive light to all the hard work we put into home preschool!

    1. Don’t feel discouraged!! I am looked down upon for even thinking of homeschooling our son. But God has called me to do that and I will do so. I hope that you will do what you feel is the right thing. I always say to other mothers “What works best for one family may not work for another.”

    2. This is WAY after the fact but I wanted to comment anyway. Having worked in the public school system (and personally attended many a private school), I always find the opinion of them failing due to homeschooling absolutely ludicrous. Has anyone set foot in a public school recently??? Academic failure is an epedimic only being surpassed by moral depravity. Don’t ever let someone make you feel inferior because you are choosing to spend intensive one-on-one time with your child. Even if she somehow ‘lags behind’ academically, she will reap the rewards of being with mom (or dad, or both) for years to come.
