Our Preschool Reading List “The Magic of Autumn”

Preschool Reading List
Preschool Reading List “The Magic of Autumn”

Every month I select a theme, a specific topic to talk about during the entire month. After the topic has been decided I then plan out our lessons, books, and activities around it.

Our current preschool theme is “The Magic of Autumn” with every theme that I create I love introducing fun, bright, descriptive and vibrant reads to my boys. Since they can’t read yet, I love showing them how magical reading can be, how one book can transport you to new places and exciting adventures.

This list of books will have your little readers learn all about the wonders of Autumn, the beauty in leaves changing color, the crisp air, all about Halloween, but most importantly about, giving, family and gratitude. The text is simplistic enough to hold your little readers’ attention and the illustrations are colorful and engaging. CONTINUE READING!

Homeschooling While Keeping a Tidy Home

 “I hope to teach my children our values and not the governments, to never stop learning, to read as many books as they can and to truly see the beauty in learning something new every day.”

I am fairly new to homeschooling and as I mentioned on my Instagram we are learning through play and growing together as we go. I added a new set of series on my top menu and one of them is titled “Homeschool” there you will be able to easily locate free-printables like my free ABC Flash Cards, lesson plans, monthly themes, our current reading list + more. So I put together this blog post to answer some common questions I get asked a lot like. CONTINUE READING!

Free, Printable Alphabet Flash Cards

ABC FLASH CARDS

I created these fun pretty Alphabet Printables for us to practice letter recognition and mainly because this week we started practicing writing our ABC’s. Flashcards have definitely been an essential tool for our daily lesson plans. They’re visually stimulating and can be used in endless possible ways for various types of activities no matter what grade your little ones are in.

How we use our flashcards:

  • Start by introducing each letter and word. (A is for apple.)
  • Identify the difference between an uppercase and lowercase letter.
  • Divide a word into syllables (ap-ple)
  • Talk about what you see in the pictures (use body motions and sounds.)
  • Use the word in a short simple sentence.  (The Apple is Red.)
  • Most important have fun.

These alphabet cards will work best when printed on card stock but regular paper will be fine too. However, they will last even longer if you get them laminated. If you don’t have a laminator, check your local thrift store, I recently got one for $3.50. You can also check if your local library has one you can use for free.  CONTINUE READING!

Homeschool + Office Tour

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Happy New Week Everyone! Before I dive in and share our homeschool routine, details and lesson plans  + free printables. I would like to first share our homeschool room + office. I always dreamed of having my very own nook, a corner all to myself where I can read, write and create anything I wanted. So when we first bought our house I wanted to turn this extra room into a playroom + secondary living room. But when back to school signs were everywhere and Sebastian kept talking about how he wanted to start school too I knew it was time for us to set up a school room of our own at home since he is too young to start actual school in my opinion.

If you been following me on Instagram for a while you already know I love incorporating rustic details in our home decor so the very first thing I wanted to get my hands on was a schoolhouse chalkboard. After searching for days and finding that everything was ridiculously expensive I decided to make my very own, which will soon be up for sale at an affordable price of course on my vintage shop coming to my blog soon. It will come in a variety of sizes including single children slate green chalkboards in two sizes 12 x 12 and 16 x 16 along with other antique pieces. I will list and link below details of each item shown on each photo as much as I can but feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions.  CONTINUE READING!
