Lessons for 4 Yr Old to Prep for Kindergarten

This school year my 4 yr old son will be home, so I want to try to homeschool him. I was wondering if anyone has done this and how. Also, do any of you have suggestions on lesson plans and scheduling his day? I am not sure what he needs to know or be able to do for Kindergarten next year. We decided to keep him out of preschool this year because he was so sick at the last place that cost an arm and a leg and we are on many waiting lists currently. We figured to just teach our son ourselves, but I am just not sure where or how to start. I...

What Should I Keep My Eyes On? (Daughter Staring School)

I am so exited, my daughter starts school in 2 weeks (pre-school). After looking to many schools I fell in love to this new school, to me is like a dream come true school.

Stay at Home Mom Seeking Arts/Crafts Ideas

Hi! I am having a great time staying home with my kids this summer. This is our first time together, I've worked all the years before. We're having a great time swimming, and attending movies at the theatre. But I was hoping to get some suggestions for arts/crafts. My kids like to play xbox & watch movies, but I don't want them doing too much of this. They like to draw but I was hoping to get some ideas of something we can ALL do together! I have a 9 yr old, 6 yr old, 5 yr old, 3 yr old, & 8 month old. Thanks!!!

4 Year Old Asked to Go up an Age Level in Play Groups?

My 6 and 4 year old children attend a play group two saturdays a month that does fun excursions for them as well as little parties and learning opportunities. (They host activities every Saturday, we pay $130 dollars a month for them to be able to pick two each and go to those.) They are divided in to age groups of 9mo-24mo, 2y-4y and 5y-7y. Pretty standard I think? I just got a call saying that this past saturday my 4 year old seemed bored and out of place during the activity and that in the past few months she has seemed to grow out of...

Where to Find Puppets

I am looking for a store in the Sterling Heights/Rochester area that might sell puppets that I can use to help teach my 4 year old Sunday school class. I can't find any puppets anywhere. I have tried Lakeshore Learning (they had some but were for kids to hold -- too small for my hands), Toys R Us and the Family Christian bookstore. I was hoping to not have to buy one online. Anyone have any ideas?
