Post Homeschool Kindergarten Curriculum - Do I Need One?
by: Heidi Johnson

If you are thinking about or planning on homeschooling, you may be wondering whether you need a homeschool Kindergarten curriculum to homeschool successfully. Truth be told, all it takes to home school a Kindergarten child is what you have used and done up until now along with a few more resources.

If you have a good homeschool guide, you can use that along with the following principles and be on your way to a great homeschool year:

1. Read to your child - This is so simple, many parents overlook the value of it. They think they have to use a bunch of prepackaged material, when great picture books will work extremely well. Buy your own books or use the library, but make sure you read to your child at least 30 minutes per day. This will expand their knowledge along with develop their language skills.

2. Play with numbers - There are many ways to teach homeschool Math. Workbooks are just one way to introduce Math. You can also use flashcards, games, money, a ruler, a calendar and many other hands-on resources to help your child learn what he needs to know about numbers.

3. Paper and pencils - Make sure you have lots of paper, pencils and interesting writing utensils readily available for your child to use. Write notes, make lists, draw pictures, and trace anything you want.

4. Don’t stress over learning to read - your *** DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK!!! *** child will pass through four different stages in his quest of learning to read. He might spend a little longer in one phase than another. Just keep working little by little and enjoy your time together. As long as he learns a little each day, he will progress and eventually learn how to read.

5. Science and History are fueled by stories - History is a collection of stories about what happened in the past and Science is a collection of stories about how the world works. Keep reading interesting books with your children and you won’t have to worry about a curriculum because he will be learning even more than a curriculum will teach him.

You can use a homeschool Kindergarten curriculum if you want, but make sure you always keep your focus on what is best for your child. Are workbooks and text books best for your child or will a homeschool guide give you the same or better results with less stress and cost? Realize that you know your child best and you can make an informed choice that will guide you through a great year.
