Emma’s Kindergarten Plans

Our Kindergarten Learning Plans at Homeschooling Hearts & Minds5-year-old Emma is very excited to be doing school this year…in fact, she’s been begging to do math on Sundays.

Who is this strange child?  It’s hard to believe that she’s related to my math groaners, lol.

My kindergartner will be joining her bigger brother, Peter (age 8) for many things.

  1. Apparently I have a preschooler according to you guys living in the US... I live in EU so kindergarten here is (from German - the kids garden) from the age of 3 till 5 or 6 where they then get in to "pre-school" because it's the year right before 1-st grade hence I wouldn't even dream that kindergarten was AFTER preschool in the US...LOL so I got them all mixed up in the post you commented on - sorry about that!
    As for our learning plans, they sort of faded away in the midst of all life's chaos, but hopefully we'll get back on track this month.. My daughter is 3 going on 4 this month and she wont become illiterate just because I don't have set in stone plan yet! Thank you so much for reminding me by the comment you've made on my post!

    Your looks solid! I would love to see how your day is scheduled! If you have a post about it, please let me know so I can steal your ideas! :P

    1. Looks solid, sure, but has changed a lot since I posted this 4 months ago, lol! I am going to be posting about how things have changed since then, because in our household our plans are constantly in flux.

      Yes, in the US, pre-K is typically ages younger than 5, although in some areas they have K-4 and then K-5. Some kids WILL learn to read at 3 or 4, but many learn later. Yes, Europe handles grades differently than we do. ;)

      I did do reading instruction with her older sister at 3-4, but she didn't really start getting it until 5 and she was a completely independent reader by 6 (meaning I was no longer giving her reading instruction at all, but she would aloud, so I could tell if there were any issues).
