Why I Became a PTA Dropout: My Decision to Homeschool

When I used teach first grade, I remember how our school had an amazing PTA! They supported the teachers and their classrooms by volunteering, planning parties and fundraisers for the school and were so involved. I dreamed of doing the same for my own child’s class when he or she would be school aged. BUT that was before I actually had kids.

Our Favorite Homeschooling Activities for Preschool

Before sending A to her 2-day a week preschool class, I did some homeschooling activities with her. I wanted to share with you some of our favorite homeschooling resources I used. I’ll try to include pictures (mostly iPhone pictures) plus a link to where I got them. Most of them are free!

Dot-to-Dot Alphabet:

I found these worksheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler. She has TONS of free printables as well as curriculum for homeschoolers. A wealth of resources!! We used these dot-to-dot alphabet sheets with dot markers when A was younger. We also used the dot markers for other worksheets and projects. So much fun!!!homeschool preschool, homeschooling resources, teaching abc
