Free Homeschool Curriculum for Kindergarten

Wow! Just found out that it's bloggy giveaway week. I can't believe all the giveaways (and it's only Monday!)

So, what do I have to give away.... hmmmm.... LOTS!

I think I'll just do giveaway every day.... Things that are useful to Moms like me....

Today, it'll be a set of Homeschool Curriculum cards for Kindergarteners. These are basically nice flash cards, put out by Wonder of Words. There's several sets of flash cards, from simple syllables, sight-words, crazy animal-shaped letters (a "c" shaped cat, for example), Upper and lower case letters, and over 150 pictures that are organized into the letter of the alphabet they start with. (See the "pear"?)



To enter, leave a comment on this post. Tell me what you or your kid liked best about kindergarten. Make sure to leave your email address or link to your blog, since blogger doesn't automatically include them.

My kid, by the way, likes "making things" the best. We have him do lots of hands-on projects, and spend lots of time "working" outside.



So, the drawing will be on Saturday, November 1st. I'll email the recipient, or post a comment on your blog. You'll have until November 5th to get back to me with your mailing address, and I'll send it on out on November 6th. Okay?

  10. My daughter is just beginning preschool, but I would still really love to use these! Right now, her favorite activities are exploring things and how they work using her senses, magnifying glasses, taking them apart, etc. And matching, she loves that too!

  12. Well, my son is only 8 months but education is first and foremost in my mind. We count everything and I use every opportunity to read to him. So why not have our Kinder curriculum ready to use when he starts talking.

  68. The cards look very helpful! Daughter starts 4K next year. I'd say my favorite memory of kindergarten is the letter people. Each week the teacher brought out a different letter person, the first one was Mr. M and I can remember him clearly.
