Where can I find resources for already designed curriculum?
My two daughters attend a pre-school program two days a week. Summer is almost here and I'm looking for a program that is already designed, somewhat like they use in their school. For instance, each day has a theme, and all their learning activities and crafts revolve around that theme. Is this out there anywhere, or do I have to try to piece each day together with my own ideas? I will if I need to, but I just thought there were curriculums that were already completed for teachers to follow.
I am a homeschooling mom of 6 years. I highly recommend Five in a Row. If you are unfamiliar with homeschooling terms Five in a Row specializes in Unit Studies, you will probably want to check out "Before five in a Row", depending on their learning levels. Love their Unit Studies for young kids. If you will be homeschooling next year check into our new free Homeschool site www.HSsegue.com, Just launched nation-wide.
But first chek out Five in a Row.
ABeka, a curriculum designed for Christian private schools and home-educators, has wonderful pre-K and kindergarten workbooks. The "curriculum" tab on Bona Vita (A blog which I co-manage) has links to several articles which provide ideas for teaching young children.
