Turning “I Spy” into a Geography Lesson

My 3 year old son and 7 year old daughter love to do Experience Preschool together, which I absolutely adore. There have been lots of quick modifications I can do to the curriculum to both suit their needs even being over 3 years apart.

Patience and Preschoolers

Patience and Preschoolers. Kinds seems ironic, as if the two do not belong together. Patience is a virtue, and I constantly define it to my preschooler as "waiting well." The Good Lord knows how much He has been working on me and the fruit of patience. I think He gave me my son to help grow this fruit in all of us, lol!

Preschool: Learning to Say Sorry

“The question is not, -- how much does the youth know? when he has finished his education -- but how much does he care? and about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”― Charlotte Mason, School Education: Developing A Curriculum As I homeschool my children, I have to...

Lessons From Anansi

It's our last week with out Fables & Folktales box from Experience Early Learning, and I am really sad about it! We had so much fun learning through stories from Aesop, like The Crow and the Pitcher and The Ants and the Grasshopper, and ventured with Paul Bunyan as we learned about American Tall Tales. This week we have been exploring international folktales, and some of my kids most...

Paul Bunyan Activities for Little Learners

This month is all about Folktales & Fables with our learning box from Experience Early Learning.

This week we moved into one of the biggest Tall Tales of America- Paul Bunyan! amzn_assoc_placement =...

The Grasshopper and the Ants Activities

There is a time for work and a time for play. That's a hard lesson for little kids who just want to play all day long. Teaching them through story is a fantastic way to help them understand this concept and the famous Aesop fable of "The Grasshopper and the Ants" teaches this concept beautifully. My son and I had some special one on one time this week and he loves games. I pulled out The Ant and...
