Teaching a little preschooler this year? If so, reading and writing are your primary subjects and I have two free full curriculum choices for you. Our readers have given us excellent feedback on both of these free preschool curriculum choices:
Starfall: Starting with the alphabet, Starfall will teach your preschool through Kindergarten student to read. This is the most popular program we’ve highlighted for preschoolers. Click on the screenshot below to visit Starfall, or go here to read my review of the site. Your little one can be set loose on this site, for free learning.
Letter of the Week: This 38-lesson curriculum is especially for ages 2-5. Focusing on one sound each week, a child learns slowly but retains the knowledge. Click on the screenshot below to visit Letter of the Week, or go here to read my review of the site. You’ll be the one on this site, collecting book lists and information for teaching.
After preschool, you’ll want curriculum for K-12
Here is a collection of free homeschool curriculum that I’ve reviewed and highlighted.
super overwhelmed and pretty much freaking out about teaching a preschooler?
Don’t be. You’re enough, you’re the perfect teacher for this child, and even if you do nothing but keep the screens off, you’ll have done a good job. I’ve made it through four preschoolers, and wrote my tips in an article for ya. You’ll be fine, and it will be fun.
I plan on combining a couple curriculums – the Letter of the Week (actually the prep version), and ABC Jesus Loves Me. I ended up changing the themes and content, and worked it into a 3-day-a-week program, but the basic concepts are there. And of course, I can switch things around as I go!

A custom curriculum — that's the very best!
My almost three yr. old and I are just finishing up LOTW’s prepatory curriculum. We supplemented with No Time For Flashcards and the free parts of abcmouse.com. Such great resources!
