I'm in the midst of planning for the girls' "school" lessons this spring & summer, to prepare them for real K3 Preschool this fall.
First off - I bought them each a 1" binder, pack of sheet protectors, crayons, crayon box, Do-A-Dot markers, and dry erase markers (thin tip).
I printed off a cutesy cover for their binders, with their names on them.
I used internet resources and other homeschooling blogs to find print outs and worksheets for the girls. (dot mazes, upper case crafts, lower case crafts, sample crafts, tot school printables)
I've used our die cut machine here at work to cut out alphabet letters to create crafts for each upper & lower case letter.
I've also found a book, song, and snack to go along with each alphabet letter.
I plan on "teaching" two or three days a week. I'll introduce the letter the first day with a worksheet & song. We'll practice tracing and writing the letters, making our crafts, and reading a book during the week. Basically, I want them to be able to recognize their letters. I feel a bit behind on this, but we've been just a little bit busy this past year!
If any of y'all have other resources or ideas, please feel free to point me in the right direction.
