Spent several months praying through if we should buy a curriculum or not for Micah. Well, we finally did and bought Answers in Genesis for Preschoolers (whole set under $100). Three main reasons: 1. He has insatiable love of learning (what child for the most part doesn't) 2. We wanted to add more purpose to his day, as far as educational 3. Helps us be more productive in our days
We spend usually a few minutes after meals or in between and it is VERY informal. Micah has really loved it! He is learning shapes, colors, numbers, tracing, ABC's, and more. Plus it includes bible activities (on top of Cubbies stuff he does each week). We know each child is unique and that there are a myriad of different views out there on when to start home schooling, but we haven't regretted it one day. There have been so many positives, especially when you can make it fun!
We also started a job chart on the fridge for helping more around the house too. He is a great helper. Micah's five main jobs: 1. Feed Daisy 2. Make bed 3. Clean up room 4. Set table 5. Wipe down bathroom
Highly recommend this as children get into the 3 year old age!
