Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum

Have we all underrated the humble pencil? - BBC News
Here is a look at the general outline for a well-rounded homeschool curriculum that will help prepare your child for the future. These grow off of ideas and general subjects that I am hopeful have seen building blocks set down for previously during Pre-K experiences. Know that you can expect further posts here in the blog on this subject, including more defined information in regards to the following curriculum. Note that my oldest already knows much of this, in a more casual form, but that Kindergarten will be more structured than before allowing for further growth and development. I know everyone takes a different approach, but am hopeful this will be of service for someone and, as always, thank you for reading,
