La La Logic Preschool Curriculum {Online with printables Review}

Preschool is a big topic around here. We’ve been having someone in preschool for the last three years as I had an early start with my oldest child. Yet in all our experiences, this is completely new and fun! La La Logic ~ (http://LaLaLogic.com) is an online preschool curriculum with printable worksheets for reinforcement. There are 100 weeks of lessons, and a I was blessed with A lifetime membership to their: Preschool Curriculum. I have set up both girls to work through this. OrangeBlossom is the main one that I’m aiming for as she is three, turning four years old this summer. She is interested in “doing school” to be like her big sister, but she isn’t quite into it yet, as she has the attention span of a butterfly… AppleBlossom on the other hand has been loving school since she could talk and at five, turning six this summer. . .

Favorite Curriculum Choices – How to answer that???

So here I was, minding my own business and updating my “Previous Curricula” page. Then I was drafting out a “plan” post for the summer and fall to come this year when I stumbled upon the calendar for the TOS Crew where I had the option to participate in a blog carnival with the theme of sharing my Favorite Curriculum Choices. How appropriate that my mind is already here!? I figure that I could just think back on this last year and share my favorite choices, but that seems unfair especially since I’m considering my earlier and past choices as my younger daughter gets closer to truly starting “school”. So I figure I’ll give you levels and my choices within. Also if you’re curious, you might want to step back and read my Wrapping Up the End of the Homeschool Year (2013-2014) post as well for more details. Link backs:. . .

Wrapping Up the End of the Homeschool Year (2013-2014 Edition)

Can you believe it is already that time of year, to wrap up your school studies? If you are using a standard school year it is that time. Although if you use a calendar year, then it’s the time to pep up as you’re almost halfway there! Or if you school year-round you might be changing topics, taking a hiatus, or re-energizing to keep on trekking. Finally, there is another new-to-me option that your family might use in (the name slips my mind at the moment) schedule of 6-9 weeks on, break, on, break, and so on! Generally for us I think we use a school year start, and then naturally fall a bit into a (whatever that last one is called) schedule. However we let life get in the way as well as speed up and slow down as the material and skills lead us. We started the year with. . .

___ of the Day… Printables

Okay, here goes. I’d like to share with you my first attempt at making a preschool printable. This is influenced completely from 1+1+1=1 and her ___ of the Day… printable. I wanted to include some different options on mine and so I experimented. Here’s the end result! Mine is lavender, but I thought someone would possibly want white instead, so I made that too. Click the image to download the Lavender copy, or the link below for the white. Or in white, click here to download.   Always have your stuff when you need it with @Dropbox. 2GB account is free! http://db.tt/a7Z66Q5s
