Preschool looks really different

The second time around. Little Bird is four. FOUR. How did my sweet little toddler get to be four?

Well, she is.

This means, in the Mama's house, that it's time for more serious (LOL) preschooling. She's not attending a program outside the house, we're doing it here.

This will focus a lot of just readiness to sit and learn. And phonics. That's the other biggie.

Sweet Pea was reading proficiently at 4.5 and ideally I'd love it if Little Bird was, too. I think she'll be able to- she's sounding out CVC words and really just needs some mom time and practice.

We'll keep slowly working through Saxon Math K with the goal of being ready to start Saxon Math 1 in a year.

I feel a lot more laid back about it. I took Sweet Pea's K4 year really seriously. Little Bird reaps the benefit of my experience, though, and should have a sweet, low key year.

  1. This is exactly how I've been with our 4-1/2yo this year. I have 2 older girls who were guinea pigs. We are doing some low-key phonics work (no workbooks yet), Singapore Earlybird math, and Handwriting Without Tears PK program over the next 12 months.
