Simple Seasons :: Preschool & Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum (4-6 years old)
Simple Seasons is a literature based, hands-on preschool and kindergarten homeschool curriculum that has been designed to be used with 4-6 year old children as a gentle introduction to their school years. Each seasonal based unit includes literature, social studies, art appreciation, crafts, and science. An introduction to phonics is included as an optional activity for the older child who is ready for kindergarten activities.
How are the Simple Seasons Preschool & Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum Guides set up?
The Simple Seasons Preschool-Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum has been designed with three main 12 week terms for the school year, plus a bonus shorter 10 week long summer study, and an optional 4 week Advent unit. Each unit includes a weekly schedule that focuses on the rhythm of the seasons with a special emphasis on holidays and nature. Each seasonal unit can be used as a stand alone program. You can also begin your homeschool year at any time by choosing the seasonally correct unit.
Many families repeat Simple Seasons for two years in a row, delving a little bit deeper the second time through. Young children enjoy the repetition of the stories and will learn even more with the repetition.
What is the recommend age for using the Simple Seasons Preschool & Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum Guides?
Although some families have used the Simple Seasons Homeschool Curriculum with children as young as two, the program is really designed to be used more fully with children 5-6 years old while they are in late preschool or kindergarten. They can even be used successfully for first grade. If you find that your child is struggling to sit still during the stories or is unable to complete the activities, we recommend setting aside the unit for awhile and trying again in 6-12 months.
Who Else Uses the Simple Seasons Preschool & Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum Guides?
Families who do not homeschool but enjoy working on projects together as a family will also enjoy the Simple Seasons Curriculum for after school or weekend ideas. The stories and activities work great for an after school program or try Puddles & Ponds as a summer bridge unit.
Homeschool Co-op groups and traditional preschool & kindergarten teachers can also use the Simple Seasons Homeschool Companion guides in their classroom environments.
