Curriculum Week - Not Back to School Blog Hop

It's time once again for the "Not" Back-to-School  Blog Hop! This week's topic is curriculum so I am going to share a little bit about what my plan is for the year with Ducky. She is currently 3 years old and will be turning 4 in December. We will begin official "school" on September 10th. I know that if she were going to public school she wouldn't be starting PreK for another year. However, after this past year of doing Tot School with her I saw readiness signs for PreK. I plan on following her lead throughout all of this and I am open to change if it's not working out. I've put hours of planning and prayer into this and here is what I've come up with:

Raising Rockstars Preschool (RRSP) from 1+1+1+=1
Hooked on Phonics - Prek
Letter of the Week theme -  corresponding with the letter we are working on each week in RRSP.
Weekly Bible Story - I will read the same story each morning for a full week and we will do crafts and activities to go along with the story.

We will also be doing:
Life skills
Sign Language
Library Time
Calender time 
Fine Motor/ Sensory work
Field Trips

I plan on using a workbox system for Ducky. I am re-purposing some Ikea shelving that we already had on hand. I will touch more on this next week when I post the pictures of our school room.

Monkey Man will be doing tot school this year and next. I will be focusing on his speech. We will be playing a ton. He loves joining us for Bible, calendar and circle time.

Having 2 kids schooling at the same time will be a new journey for me but I am up for the challenge.

The new baby is due in late November but is expected to make an early arrival like her brother did 

Thanks for stopping by and reading. I hope you'll be back soon.
