My words just don't seem

My words just don't seem adequate. I've been wanting to say thank you for some time and have felt the need to find the "right" words to convey how thankful I am that you offer this beautiful program to the public and that you offer it for free. This is my first year "homeschooling" my 4 yr old son who just seems to learn in a non-typical way. Through finding our own home rhythm and this amazing curriculum....and being able to afford it.....my son, who 6 months ago was an angry/insecure/resistant to learning, little person who had BIG emotions.....is absolutely thriving!! I just can't thank you enough for being a part of our journey to a peaceful home!

Recently found and amazed!!

Oh my goodness!! You just don't know how delighted I was to find you and then find this adorable curriculum. My husband and I made the decision to homeschool our 4.5 year old daughter. We have quite a few programs ordered, but haven't totally begun yet. Trying to get everything just right, feeling the "pressure" of everything needing to be just right. Wanting something sweet, calming yet joyful (just like our Princess)....I found you. I've smiled, giggled, oohed and aahed, driving my husband crazy, sharing everything from your site. He's tickled as well with it all. This just feels good, I mean really good inside.

The whole point of teaching our daughter, is to give her not only the best education we can, but to also enjoy every second together as a family. Everything you've come up with here, is about being a family. You have our thanks, our admiration and we will be here often.

Also, is there a way to be on an email list for updates for your site?

Thanks,
Rochelle and Paul

My thoughts entirely!

I was going to comment but your comment is pretty much exactly what I was going to say! Two minds with but a single thought :-)

Hi! I am a mother of 4. My 2 oldest children have attended public school their whole lives. My 5 year old (turned 5 in September) has been in a k4 program for 8 weeks and still screams and cries every day. She hates it. I am thinking of bringing her home and home schooling her. I have been a school teacher for the past 11 years and this is my first year being home and not teaching because I am pursuing my PhD. There are so many options out there that it is overwhelming but I love the sound of what you are doing. I DO want her to continue learning the letters and writing that she has been learning at school.
My main question is - if we start now - as in Monday of next week - where would I "be" in your curriculum? I'd like to see if she can pick up where you are or if we need to back pedal or advance. I'm just not sure what the time frame of your 3 sections is. Could you point me towards the current spot?
Also - any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much, and best of look to you and your family!

Hi Marie, I would suggest

Hi Marie,
I would suggest starting the Explode the Code books from the beginning and matching your flower fairy poem to the letter you are working on for the week. There are additional teacher guides and flashcards that you can use along side the ETC series if you would like to work more heavily on phonics. As for the Harvest Time weekly themes... you can do those in any order. So pick the ones that make sense with what is available around your home/holidays. If you have cider mills/orchards in your area you might want to start with the apple weeks since that is a very 'now' subject and of course the pumpkins go well with Halloween. So maybe start next week with week 6, followed by week 9 and from there pick and choose what you would enjoy covering based on the projects.

Good luck and have fun!

Just shared your page on my FB group fan page. These PDFs look so good! Pinned this post.
If you have time maybe you can link this to Family Fun Friday - we usually get over 100 bloggers and I think they would love these!

Thank you!!! Simply amazing!!

I am so grateful for the incredible time & effort you invested to make this beautiful resource available! Thank you so very, very much! So excited to use this beautiful curriculum with my 5 and 1 year old boys & have shared this link with many friends. Please post if you add more curriculum...it's simply wonderful!

Art?

I am beyond blessed to have found your website and this curriculum! I have hunted for something nature-inspired for my daughter with SPD. We are homeschooling her for just this reason, and we want her education to be specifically, geared towards her, not the masses. Thank you, a million times thank you. We'll be using the curriculum for the remainder of this year for preschool and again for Kindy in the fall. I think the repetition will be wonderful for her :).
I cannot for the life of me find where the art projects are from, can you explain? I dont want to miss this portion!!!
Also, do you incorporate any spiritual practices with your kiddos?
Again. Thank you and bless you!!!!

Thank you does not even begin

Thank you does not even begin to cover it. Because of your guides I now know I can teach my children in the manner I always knew I should. In a soft, gentle, way that was a joy for all of us. People have commented on how much fun we always have:) I have a degree in Child Development and until your site I was in tears over homeschooling. God Bless You for giving of yourselves in such a way....I'm crying right now...geez...just wanted to say, ever humble..Thank You.
sorry for any mistakes, early morning, busy home, and not enough coffee yet:)

With Much Love and Grace:)

Would I make you feel better

Would I make you feel better if I told you I had tears in my eyes when I read your comment? Michelle and I have been very blessed. Wee Folk Art is a way we feel we can share our blessings with others. It gives us so much joy each each every time someone shares with us. Wishing you and your family much joy on your journey!

Getting Ready Again...

I just wanted to let you know we are still using the guides and going strong! I love the companion guides...so full and rich. Our 5 boys range in age from 7yrs-1yr(twins) and it is so easy to work them all into our activities(most of the time:)) Whenever I need inspiration or I get off track(scared I'm not "teaching" to a state test) I just pop on over here....refill my heart and eyes and get back to work:) Thank you, truly, THANK YOU...this is not just home school this is a guide for a home life that will enrich a whole family. Happy Holidays!

With Much Love and Grace:)

These are beatiful!

What a thoughtful, well-put-together, beautiful curriculum! I will definitely be ordering some of the books and doing parts of this with my 2 hs'd kids (7 and 5). No time to fit it all in, but I am very, VERY impressed.

I am so excited to get

I am so excited to get started on this program with my almost 5 year old boy! I was wondering if you had another suggestion for an ABC coloring book besides the Flower Fairy one? I can tell just by looking at it that he will think its for "girls", LOL.

Dover makes several different

Dover makes several different alphabet coloring books. I would suggest looking at the Animal Alphabet or the Birds Alphabet coloring books as an alternative. But just so you know, the Flower Fairy coloring book does correspond to the Flower Fairy poems and has many 'boy fairies' mixed in too. HTH - have fun!

Another question..where is

Another question..where is the Craft Supply List you spoke of in the directions? Thanks again

Saying thank you, again.

Ladies,
I loved using your guides with my daughter two years ago, and we've started using them again with my son this year. Thank you so much. When we started it was my very first step into homeschooling, and your guides were there to rely on. This year it's my very first step into homeschooling multiple age groups, and again, your guides are there for me to rely on. And so I am here, with the greatest sincerity, to say Thank You, again.

Summer

We are finishing up our "preschool" year with my now 5-year-old daughter after using all 3 of your curriculums. While starting to map out our summer, I checked your site on the off chance you had added some summer ideas, and I am so excited that you have! Thank you for the wonderful schedules and book lists-they have been everything I could have asked for. When I started looking for a curriculum, my biggest "wants" were that it be season-based and literature-based, include lots of crafting and baking and nature. This is the curriculum I wish I had written myself :) Thanks again-I am looking forward to another season of great books and activities!

Thank you so much for this

Thank you so much for this great curriculum. My daughter loves it! I have also tried Oak Meadow and A Little Garden Flower and they have their good points too but the activities and books you have outlined here have been by far her favorites. I curious what you used for first grade and beyond - I am struggling to pick something for next year.

great guides

There are many different guides to be found on the internet regarding the best guides and resources, but to be honest since I found the ones on offer here, I have not been able to find anything that is as well written as the ones offered here. Thanks a lot I am learning something new every day. spielautomaten

Hi, Really your approach

Hi,
Really your approach towards children education is praise worthy. I needed those for my new born baby. This post is in a word...awesome. I am glad to be a regular visitor of your blog. Thanks a lot...

LOVE IT

any chance you'll continue to grow your curriculum files? We are at the 4 & 6 age range now and growing with you would be fabulous! :)

This is my first time

This is my first time visiting and boy I wish I had found you several years ago! ZI also wish you went higher than ages 4-6....this site is amazing! Thanks!

I am looking forward to using

I am looking forward to using your curriculum with my son! I was wondering if you would share what homeschool curriculum you use for your children? I'm new to the homeschool world and would love any advice or recommendations. Thanks!

This is something I get asked

This is something I get asked frequently in emails. Especially since we have only published a one year curriculum. "What curriculum do I use with my children now?" I've been reluctant to answer just because what works for one family (or child) may not work for another. BUT I do feel I can point people to some curriculums or resources for further investigation. I'm thinking a blog post on curriculums may be in order... and possibly overdue. Check back over the next couple weeks. I will be putting together a list of curriculum links.

Do you have an Amazon

Do you have an Amazon listmania or something similar with all of the books in each unit in one handy place? I'd love to order some books through through your affiliate link so that you get a little something out of it for such a lovely little curriculum but I'm having a hard time locating the proper link.

Thanks so much for asking.

Thanks so much for asking. Actually, never thought of a Listmania but that would be a good idea! In the meantime, on each of the curriculum's overview page, you will find an Amazon box with all the books listed. If you go in through there, we do have an amazon account and we will get credit. If you are doing the winter theme now, the booklist can be found HERE. http://weefolkart.com/content/winter-wonderland-preschoolkindergarten-curriculum 
Over the next few months we hope to get many of our resources better organized. Our shop will also be opening. We love sharing free content with our readers, but we really do appreciate it when readers enter Amazon from our site. Thanks again for being so thoughtful :)
