As many of you know, we didn’t start kindergarten with our 5-year-old.
Over halfway through the school year, we have no regrets, and we feel like she will be much more prepared when she starts a part-time homeschool kindergarten program next fall, soon after she turns 6!
I’ve been using a variety of resources to get our daughter ready for kindergarten. For academics, here lately, I’ve been using EmbarK12 Comprehensive- Online and hands-on preschool program for your early learner. It’s a family of preschool programs that includes EmbarK¹² Comprehensive and EmbarK¹² Online to prepare children for kindergarten.
When the EmbarK12 Comprehensive- Online box came in the mail, it felt as if I had received a preschool classroom in a box!
The EmbarK¹² Comprehensive program has 1,200 age-appropriate activities, engaging children using a wide variety of interactive multimedia and hands-on materials – over 288 hours of activities in all.
It can be a primary preschool program or supplemental to your current one.
Some of the highlights include:
• 450+ online activities
• 750+ hands-on activities plus required materials
• 18 thematic units with six subjects: language arts, math, science, social studies, art, and music. Examples of themes include: Family and Friends, My Five Senses, and Looking at Animals.
• Winner of five distinguished awards and used in national childcare center
The comprehensive program they sent me even includes 19 books of classic children’s literature, 18 unique manipulatives and learning tools; plus K¹² materials including 18 online activity guides and supporting resources!
Our girls have especially enjoyed learning with the counting bears, shapes and magnetic letters and numbers. I have also benefited from using the flashcards with the girls.
We absolutely love the classic books that came as part of the curriculum! Some of the titles include Harold and the Purple Crayon; Llama Llama Misses Mama; Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Runaway Bunny.
It has also been a blessing to have both hands-on tangible materials to use with the girls as well as the online program. As much as I’d love to keep them away from the computer at such a young age, I know that they live in a world and in a generation where learning computer skills is vital.
Some moms can do well with putting together a curriculum on their own. I am not one of those moms. I need someone to lay it all out for me! That is what I appreciate the most about EmbarK¹².
