Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool

A complete, free online Christian homeschool for your family and mine

Getting Ready 1

Getting Ready 1 is the preschool level of the curriculum. It is recommended to be used at age 4. If your four-year old isn’t getting it, wait six months and try again. I had two children start at both three and four and one at five. The children who started at three were starting to pick up sounds and letters and words by asking questions. They were “reading books” by pointing to each word and asking what it was. Basically, they were showing they were ready and interested and motivated to start learning to read.

Here’s a Progress Report that is unique for this level. You can use it to check off what days you have completed. This is the only level that runs longer than 180 days.

I called this “Getting Ready” because I’m not really interested in teaching a lot of different things at this age. I want to prepare them as readers mostly. (You can read my Learning to Read Philosophy here.) Once they can read well, they can do anything. I will also do counting and some basics like shapes and colors. Anything else they get by looking at books, observing the world, asking questions and vicariously through the learning of siblings.

Your child can watch the videos independently, but they are little and are going to need a parent or older sibling to guide and help. I will put things in bold that a parent or older sibling needs to do with or for the child. You can choose to not do the crafts, but it would be great if you would interact with your child with the animal pictures and the alphabet phonetic sounds like I describe. You’ll notice boy and girl phonetic alphabet stories. They are basically identical except for the character names. Basically every day has something to print out which is marked with an *.

This level is split into two parts, learning the alphabet and their phonetic sounds, and then beginning to learn to read with sight words. In Getting Ready 2 they will learn to read with phonics. The end goal is to be ready for the first level of this curriculum.

The alphabet stories from this level are also going on youtube and have been put on pdf, girl versionboy version.

Day 1

  • Listen to the alphabet song.
  • Learn about the letter A. (This game requires flash player. Check the troubleshooting guide if you are having trouble.)

I have tried to use safe search to do that, but just in case, I suggest turning on google safe search on your computer as well. Just click on the letter A link and choose safe search from the top right of the search page next to the settings button.)
  • *Print out the letter A alligator and color him in. Write Abraham or April on the paper, using a different color for the A. Hang him up and call him, Abraham (April) the Alligator. Talk about how he says “aaaaa…” (as in cat) all the time because he’s scared of everything.

  • Don’t expect perfection! They don’t have to cut on the lines or get everything on right. Here’s my 4-yr-old’s version of this. I told him to cut it in chunks. I shaved off a little bit more, but even I didn’t worry about cutting on the lines. Crafts are for fun so let them be fun!

  12. I love this! I had no problem teaching my older son things when he was younger, but my youngest son picks and chooses what he wants to pay attention to…if he doesn’t feel like learning about something, his attention span is very short. Your collection of learning material has made it VERY EASY to teach him, and it has made it VERY easy for him to learn. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  14. This is great! Thank you! I have a 3.5 yo, who is a bit tongue-tied and can’t say the /k/ sound. You point out to put a finger on your tongue to help isolate the sound – thank you for that suggestion! I will have him try it! Thank you!
