Your Child is an Art Genius- New Art Curriculum Review

I’ve always loved to draw.  Somewhere along the way, I decided I wasn’t good at it because I couldn’t do very realistic drawings or draw people that looked like the people I was trying to draw, so I quit.  Homeschooling my children has given me a great opportunity to try different art forms and get back into art.  One art program I was given the opportunity to review lately is Beyond the Stick Figure by Sally Stansfield.

Nature-Themed Preschool Worksheets

I’ve recently created some Nature-themed preschool worksheets.  While I don’t think worksheets are an essential part of a preschool curriculum, some children love doing them. This set of worksheets cover math, literacy, and visual perception.  They have a fun nature theme with hand-drawn images.  I’ve added a touch of color here and there for interest, but I know we’re all ink-conscious so I’ve kept it to a minimum.

Using Games in Your Homeschooling

Through the years, we’ve really enjoyed using games in our homeschooling.  There are so many games available that work perfectly to teach a variety of skills and subjects- math, spelling, language, team skills, strategy, logic, and the list could go on.  Of course, there are Scrabble and Pictionary which are great for spelling and vocabulary.  Uno is probably one of the best for teaching young children colors and numbers.

Complete-a-Dot Printable Activities

I made these Complete-a-Dot Printable Activities for my daughter a while ago and am only now getting them up on my blog. My little girl loved matching the stickers to the right colors.

These Complete-a-Dot printable activity pages are meant to be used with three-quarter inch office labels. I bought some at the dollar store, or you could buy them on Amazon. You could also use Do a Dot markers.
