      I’m so sorry! I will email it to you.

  2. I am very impressed with your Pre K Homeschool information. I’m considering starting the idea of Homeschool for family and friends. I guess it should start with the Pre K Homeschool information, but what to do with K-5th. Can you give me a clear run down on materials for doing Elementary Homeschool?

    1. Angela Thayer says:

      Thank you! I only have a home preschool curriculum, so I don’t have anything for K-5th right now. We used The Good and the Beautiful for curriculum when my kids started kindergarten and beyond. There are some great curriculums out there! Hope that helps.

  3. Wow, no wonder when homeschool children come to the classroom they are so behind. Why not homeschool for the same amount of time your child would spend in a school? Also hopefully, you actually have a bachelors degree in something.

      Hello! I’m sure some kids come to school behind, but that is not all kids. We’ve done both (homeschool and public school) and my kids were not behind when they returned to the classroom. In fact, they were ahead of their peers and were in advanced classes. I do have a bachelors in elementary education, so yes that does help. The reason why a homeschool schedule is shorter than a public or private school is because you can get the work done much faster! You don’t have wasted down time and when you are working one-on-one with a student, you can get the work done quickly. This preschool schedule I posted is for children 3-4 years old. They do not need 7 hours of direct instruction. Hope that helps!

      1. What a graceful response.
        My aunt homeschooled me and several other children. She didn’t have a degree, but all of her students regularly tested in the high 80s and 90s for state testing. It probably helps to have a degree, but definitely isn’t necessary.
        We spent loads of time outside and were very active in extracurricular programs! I loved school and am so happy to see more parents taking on the challenge of teaching their children.
        Thank you for sharing your knowledge with those of us who don’t have a degree!

      This is the most disrespectful comment I’ve ever seen on a homeschooling info site. Maybe get your information correct. Homeschool children are thriving and testing way above average. The idea of preschool and kindergarten being needed or even beneficial has been distorted by the school institutional mindset. Kids need time to explore the world and figure things out before you start drilling information and theories into their little brains. Most of us homeschool families are no need for directed studies at 3-6 years old. And, wonders of wonders, kids are able to “catch up” to their age groups withing a very short period of time. Your little college paper means nothing in the grand scheme of life.

    3. I have a masters in teaching and I’ve taught elementary and middle school. I promise a BA is not a magic pill that makes you a capable teacher. I have seen MANY teachers in the public school setting who are mediocre and even frankly terrible. Meanwhile, in our homeschool community there are MANY veteran parents who can out-teach me in any subject, including the ones I’ve professionally taught. They know how to touch the heart of children and make learning come alive. I learned how to manage a classroom of 24+ and teach to the test.

      A lot of time spent in public school is busy time. It was designed to match the adult workday. You simply don’t need as much time working one-on-one or in a small group setting.

  4. Hi, do you have the soft copy of the pre-k schedule which i can buy and edit and print it out? Thank You!

  5. for the main lesson, is it different everyday or the same lesson for the week?

    1. Angela Thayer says:

      The main lesson is different every day.

      1. can you give examples of main lessons?

        1. Angela Thayer says:

          Sure! The main part of a lesson is doing activities that we’re focusing on for that day. So if we’re focusing on letter A, I’d go over how to write the letter, provide activities to practice this, go over the letter sounds, etc. Hope that makes sense.

  6. I couldn’t find you Number formation rhymes print out. Could you direct me to where to find it?

    1. Angela Thayer says:

      Sure! I’ve emailed you.
