Pinterest Thursday School 2017-2018-Preschool Binder Part 1

6 Jul

As some of you may know, starting this year, The Boy will no longer be attending public school.  I am very excited that this year, the whole family will be homeschooling together!
Of course, this means I will be going from homeschooling one kiddo, to homeschooling THREE!  This year, we will have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader-whew!
In order to make this transition a little easier on myself, I decided to spend extra time this summer prepping as much as I could in advance.  I figure, it can’t hurt to have things as organized as possible, right?  🙂
Well, the school year is VERY quickly approaching, so I thought I would share my curriculum picks, and some fun things I found on Pinterest for the 2017-2018 school year.  Because there is SO much, I thought I would start with the activity binders I made for each of the kids.  I know I won’t be able to help every kiddo at once, so I thought it might be nice to have something each person can work on while I am otherwise occupied.
Today I am going to begin sharing The Little Guy’s Preschool binder.  There are a lot of things in his binder, so I will be sharing parts of it over the next few weeks.
Let’s dig in!
I have several goals for The Little Guy this year-recognizing letters and numbers, getting used to holding a writing utensil, learning how to use scissors, etc.  I want it to be low stress though-where he can just work on what he wants, when he wants to.  It is just Preschool after all.  I think more than anything, he really just wanted to have something to do like the big kids, so this is what I came up with:
Alphabet Letters
ABC Letters to Trace A

I printed each letter, then put two into each page protector back to back (to save on page protectors), and he uses a white board marker to trace the letters, and then just wipe them off when he is done.
Number Puzzles
Number Puzzles: 1-20  {Free Sample Set}This Number  Puzzles activity set contains 2 printable puzzles focusing on ordering numbers 1-20.  Each page has a fun picture with cutting lines and ten ordered numbers, ranging  from 1-20. Simply print the puzzles and cut apart the pieces.

Free Thanksgiving (Multi-Age) Printable Pack

I printed, laminated, and cut these.  I placed each puzzle it its own quart-sized baggie, and then put several into a hole-punched zipper pencil pouch, which I then inserted into his binder.
Preschool Packs
I also printed several things from Preschool Packs including: number puzzles (like those above), size sequencing, clip and count cards, line tracing, etc.
All of these packs are free, so I just picked which pages I wanted to print, and went from there.  I do recommend printing in fast draft so that you don’t use up too much ink.  After pages are laminated, they look better color-wise anyway, and your kids won’t know the difference!
