Homeschool Your Active Preschooler with Learn and Grow Preschool Curriculum

Who knew a preschool homeschool curriculum could be so much fun??

I am absolutely convinced that preschoolers learn best through play. The thought of making a child as young as 3 or 4 years old sit and do worksheets literally makes me cringe. 

Stop giving your 3 year old worksheets!

(Disclaimer- I received a free copy of this product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are entirely my own.)

It is for this reason that I’ve been pretty vocal about the overuse of curriculum for small children. I simply don’t think tedious worksheets are conducive to learning in children this young (or any age for that matter…).

So…I was admittedly unsure about trying out a preschool curriculum by my good friend Michelle Caskey from Homeschool-Your-Boys.com, but since she and I share many of the same views on homeschooling, I decided to give it a whirl.

Boy, am I glad I did.

What is Learn and Grow Preschool Curriculum?

Learn and Grow is a hands-on curriculum geared for children ages 2-4 years old.

Believe me, this isn’t your average preschool curriculum. Rather than being a workbook-based curriculum in which young children are expected to sit still and complete page after page of assignments, Learn and Grow incorporates what young children enjoy doing best- playing, moving, and creating- into the most natural preschool curriculum I’ve ever seen.

This resource is packed- packed!!- with over 700 activities. Set up into 130 daily assignments, Learn and Grow is perfect for new homeschooling parents and homeschool moms who prefer to have an organized schedule laid out in front of them.

And did I mention that it’s cross-curricular? 

Learn and Grow incorporates all subject areas into the daily lesson plans through suggested books, hands-on activities, outdoor exploration, games, and more!

Included with this curriculum is access to an appendix that includes many of the additional materials needed for the suggested activities.

Why I fell in love with Learn and Grow Preschool Curriculum:

You know the slight aversion to preschool worksheets I have? There is not one. single. boring. worksheet. in this curriculum.

Not one.

Instead of my 4 year old tracing 50 A’s on a piece of paper, she made apple prints on A’s made out of cardstock.

 

Instead of labeling bugs on a piece of paper, she went outside and hunted for them!

 

And instead of being reminded of all the things she can’t do because of her age, she had a great time brainstorming five ways she can help out around the house.

Life Skills for Preschoolers
Can’t you just see how important she felt? 🙂

 

In fact, these activities were so much fun that her older siblings often came along for the ride! Not a bad way to work in some learning over summer break if I do say so myself. 😉

Thanks to Learn and GrowI have changed my views on preschool curriculums for homeschool.

Now I know there are resources out there for those of us who want our children to learn without taking away the natural curiosity that all kids have. 

When it comes to homeschool preschool courses, Learn and Grow truly is the cream of the crop. And take it from me…

I’m pretty hard to please!

  1. I love this. I am just getting started with my 2 year old and everything I have looked at has had worksheets and I’m like there is no way that is happening. She will not sit at a table or desk and do that nor would she even know what it was. I have tried apps that sat they are for her she and it’s like whatever letter or number you need click on or whatever but because she doesn’t know them it is truly her guessing. I am getting a plan together for us to “Homeschool” if you want to call it that and I am just kinda going through all the curriculums I can find and just came up with my own stuff to do. Mainly doing activities and having her help doing stuff around the house and helping make snacks or whatever. I am def3inetly going to check this out thanks for reviewing it.
