Homeschool Preschool Curriculum Suggestions

I'm looking for a good curriculum to begin homeschooling my kinesthetic 4 1/2 year old. I myself happen to be a learner by doing. Do you have any suggestions? The time to begin is nearing and I don't have a solid plan yet!


Hi Monica,
I highly recommend Five In A Row for anyone, but especially for new homeschooling parents of young children.

I have used Five In a Row (FIAR) with all my children and so far, all have loved it. It's inexpensive, fun and so easy-to-use. My seven year old asked to go through it twice because she loved it so much.

You can find a Five In a Row homeschool curriculum review here, and another FIAR review here as well as some homeschool preschool ideas submitted by other homeschooling parents.


If you have other homeschool preschool curriculum suggestions for Monica, please feel free to share what has worked with your family.

No Curriculum
by: Renee Mosiman

I believe that young preschoolers do not need formal curriculum. I never used one with either of my boys. I just took them to the library and read all kinds of books from fiction to nonfiction. I took them on field trips to the zoo, science center, dinosaur musuem etc and explained things as we went. I played with them with toys from Legos to board games explaining how to put a set together or how to count when we played a game. We cooked together, played outside, and joined a weekly playgroup. We added in a few select classes like music. At the age of 4 I added some workbooks for preschool and K that are found at places like Costco. My kids now are 5 and 8 and are doing well academically and socially.
