Anna’s Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum

Kindergartners learn so much through play! Today I’m sharing some formal school curriculum materials that Anna enjoys learning with, but honestly a kindergartner will learn plenty using household items.

Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum: Art

Anna uses our home makerspace as her core kindergarten art curriculum. We always have paper and pencils out, and our family makes a lot of crafts. Her koala crate subscription from Kiwi Co gives her some structured craft activities that she enjoys. Anna decorates our cardboard boxes and turns them into cars, planes, and houses before they eventually make their way into the recycling bin.

For Music, Anna takes violin lessons.

Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum: English

Anna picks a minimum of three books to read out loud every day. Check this post for our favorite books for kindergarten. She uses copywork pages from SchoolhouseTeachers.com and enjoys activities from the Virtual Book Club for Kids.

Anna is a kinesthetic learner, who loves learning through movement and hands-on activities. We used this alphabet object set to practice letters and their sounds. She was struggling to solidify all the letter names, so I made her a bunny hop alphabet board game to play.

I added linking letter cubes to help Anna combine letter sounds into words.

I make sure Anna has plenty of time for unstructured pretend play, which builds basic language as well as storytelling skills – from character development through to plot planning.

Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum: History

I primarily use picture books to teach Anna history. Kindergarten is a wonderful time to look at history through the lens of personal history. I tell her family stories, and she enjoys listening to me read family history stories from our Christmas book.

I love teaching kids history through living history sites. Anna will learn a lot of history when we travel back to Edinburgh again this summer!

Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum: Math

Math U See is Anna’s core math curriculum for kindergarten. I supplement with print-outs from the kindergarten math curriculum from SchoolhouseTeachers.com. Anna spends a lot of time playing with pattern blocks and other math manipulatives, especially these family counters and bear counters. The counters see a lot of storytelling time as well, and they can be used to teach math in out-of-the-box ways, such as by building shapes.

Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum: Science

Anna really enjoys exploring the world around her, so we are focusing on natural sciences for this year. She does dabble in simple chemistry using baking soda and vinegar, and she thoroughly enjoyed this starter science kit. I often refer to this STEM Activities Using Household Items post for more activity ideas for Anna. She really enjoyed turning our puppy into a science experiment using this animal observation worksheet!
