Homeschool Preschool-God's Little Explorers |

Affiliate Links Disclosure - This post may contain affiliate links |

NOTE: This series is a re-post from last year. As many of you are aware, I am currently working full-time and not homeschooling, but as so many of you have overwhelmingly loved to see my posts on how to homeschool preschool, I thought I would re-post them starting this new year and all the way until summer when I hope to possibly be home again and pick up homeschooling where we left off. Enjoy! And I hope you love using God’s Little Explorers curriculum with your own children. For more info on it, you can CLICK HERE.  Homeschool Preschool-God's Little Explorers-Z

 We’re using God’s Little Explorers Homeschool Preschool Curriculum
and we are on Week 4-Letter Z.


Jelly Bean is 47 months. Baby Ruth is 32 months.

I use the Weekly Homeschool Planner to track our progress and plan for the week ahead.


God’s Little Explorers activities:

Bible Focus: Noah’s Ark

Jelly Bean and Baby Ruth are examining the picture in the Jesus Storybook Bible.
(I still don’t like it, but I will use it for the REALLY LONG Bible stories that need cutting down a bit for the littles.)


Zoo activities: 

  • Making zoo animals & Creating our own zoo (We don’t have zoo animals, but we do have plenty of My Little Ponies!!!)
  • Alphabet Book

IMAG0701IMAG0702Lowercase letters are for Jelly Bean and Uppercase letters are for Baby Ruth.

Letter of the Week activities:

Roll-a-Zebra (They seriously LOVE this game!) 



Letter Z Handwriting sheet & Alphabet Letter Mazes


Noah’s Ark Puzzle from the Doller Store


New Workboxes!

It was getting to the point where I had to keep up with Baby Ruth’s tendency to work very fast and field her “What do I do NOW, Mommy?!” questions EVERY. FIVE. MINUTES. >_<

Well, she’s 2 and a half, so she’s scribbling through most of the work, which is really just practice for her. And she does really well with the matching and puzzles, so they literally take her a minute or two.

So, I bought some 3-drawer shelves from Target and stacked them on top of each other. 6 for each girl.


Later on, when the workload increases and gets more complicated, we’ll upgrade to 8-10 drawer shelves.

Since I already have a hanging file folder for the Letter of the Week activities filled up, I usually put worksheets and coloring pages in here. Ideally, activities they can work on individually with little oversight from me. So far, so good! And as you can see, their Daily Calendar Notebooks (Binders) are sitting on top so that they can be done first. (These binders also double as on-going portfolios where I keep all their finished work.)

And of course, my girls love to play ABC Mouse. Very helpful for the witching hour (pre-dinner/cooking time) or when I need to put the baby down for a nap. To read my review, click here –> Review
