I’ll start with my youngest first.

My youngest is 4 years old and he is going to be in preschool this year. I know you don’t really need a curriculum for preschool, and with most of my kids we didn’t really do any formal preschool. They just kind of hung out and colored, or made messes while we schooled. However, this year i thought it would be fun to try out something different.

Let me just say this, there are sooo many wonderful preschool curriculum options out there, that i couldn’t pick just one. That’s right, we have 3 different ones we are going to be using.

The Peaceful Preschool – This will be the main curriculum i use.

A Year of Playing Skillfully – I will take bits and pieces from this curriculum and add it in each month.

Before 5 in a Row – Once again, this one i will just be taking bits and pieces from and add it in as we go.

That’s it for my preschooler…

We put apples slices into 4 different jars. One jar had just air, the next had water, the next had oil, and the last one had vinegar. We observed them all day to see what would happen to the apples and we put our results in our journals.
