As an experienced teacher, let me be the first to tell you:
Any curious and loving parent is unmatched as their child's best teacher.
Teaching your child is easy, fun, and beautiful with Kindergarten at Home.
The 36-week curriculum covers all core skills through play.
Kindergarten at Home is entirely play-based—that's right, no more worksheets! Purposeful play allows your little one to grow imagination, build vocabulary and further learning with open-ended questions and exploration.
Each week, you have three mornings with planned activities—these are the core skills.
From literacy and numeracy, to critical thinking, problem solving, and emotional wellness, your little one will be set to soar. The comprehensive coursebook guides you day-by-day, step-by-step.
The rest of the week is comprised of quality time with your child.
Your coursebook also includes deep learning projects—like art and cooking projects—as well as quiet time activities for some restful, independent play each day.

"I just wanted to say that I have had 6 children and had my oldest reading before she entered Kindergarten. Yet, I was so excited to see the order in which you suggest to teach ABC's. I bought your program for my last daughter and wished I had it for my son. She was 4 at the time of purchase, and she really enjoyed going over the letters. Thank you teaching an old Mom a new trick!!! I truly recommend this program to everyone!!!"

Kindergarten at Home and How Wee Read
Bundle Kindergarten at Home with my best-selling learn-to-read program.
Kindergarten at Home
Your complete 36-week curriculum covering all core skills.
I am a certified teacher and reading specialist, and taught Kindergarten in the classroom for 10+ years. Currently, I am a homeschool teacher to my 4 children. I also support parents, caregivers, and fellow teachers in their journeys with little ones through my blog, ebooks, and digital courses. Through decades of teaching young children (including my own!), I have refined the best activities to build strong foundations in literacy and mathematics.
Kindergarten at Home covers all foundational Kindergarten skills—from phonological awareness all the way to sound blending, and so much more! Generally, children are ready for Kindergarten at Home between the ages of 4 and 6. Before this age, I recommend my preschool program, Play into Kindergarten Readiness. Play into Kindergarten Readiness acts as a bridge from entirely child-led play to guided play-based activities. Once a child is having success with 20-minute play-based activities, such as those found in Play into Kindergarten Readiness, they are ready to begin Kindergarten at Home.
You will learn all about phonological skills in Kindergarten at Home! Phonological skills actually have nothing to do with the letters in the alphabet, but they are essential for building a strong foundation for reading. Phonological awareness focuses on auditory skills, hearing the relationship between words—the rhymes, the sounds, the syllables, etc. Did you know that a child’s ability to rhyme in Kindergarten is a direct predictor of his or her reading success in grade one? It’s true! Rhyming is the first of seven phonological skills that your little one will master with Kindergarten at Home.
Yes! Kindergarten at Home is set up with nine activities per week designed to be completed over three days, plus extra deep learning opportunities sprinkled throughout the week. Of course, you are welcome to implement the curriculum however works for your family!
Absolutely! How Wee Read is my best-selling learn-to-read resource. Through 60 simple lessons, you will teach your child how to read! The program is divided into four sections, and each lesson is laid out for you step-by-step. In the first section (Lessons 1 to 7), we teach the seven phonological awareness skills that are critical for children to know before learning how to read. In the second section (Lessons 8 to 19), we teach letters, sounds, and blending. In the third section (Lessons 20 to 24), we introduce special rules and exceptions, including sneaky letters, digraphs, blends, vowels, and the Magic Letter E. And finally, in the last section (Lessons 25 to 60), we take all of the knowledge your child has learned and apply it to familiar readers. And voila! You have a reader!
Absolutely! How Wee Write is my learn-to-write workbook that perfectly complements How Wee Read! For each lesson in How Wee Read, you will find a corresponding lesson in How Wee Write. How Wee Write is divided into four sections. In the first section (Lessons 1 to 7), your child practices a variety of form drawings to understand the flow of writing and the idea of mark-making. In the second section (Lessons 8 to 19), we begin letter formation! We follow the same special order for teaching letters as we do in How Wee Read. In the third section (Lessons 20 to 24), we introduce some rules, exceptions, and things that can be tricky when learning to write, like letter reversals. And finally, in the last section (Lessons 25 to 60), we progress to writing simple sentences, carefully selected to focus on the word families and sight words your child is learning in How Wee Read.
Absolutely! Little Woodland Artists is a beginner’s guide to learning to draw simple nature items. No prior skills are needed. Sometimes young artists like to have a few known skills up their sleeves to boost confidence before feeling comfortable doodling and drawing. This resource will teach children how to draw 10 simple woodland-themed animals, plants, and other items. First, your child will be taught to draw a simple picture, step-by-step. Once your child has completed the how-to-draw, she can turn her picture into a complete art project with the included art extension. You'll enjoy beautiful projects like watercolor pine needs, a sensory owl, a color-mixing sunflower, symmetrical antlers, and more.
Absolutely! This art pack is perfect for parents, teachers, and caregivers looking to equip their young learners with educational and beautiful art. These thoughtfully designed posters will help provide an inspiring and encouraging atmosphere for your little one's learning. Perfect for use in a homeschool, classroom, or as decoration in a child's bedroom or playroom! You will receive 7 educational posters (3D Shapes, The Color Wheel, Ocean Alphabet A to Z, Anatomy of a Grey Horned Owl, Lifecycle of an Owl, and Types of Owl), as well as 3 sets of learning cards (26x Ocean-themed Alphabet Cards, 26x American Sign Language (ASL) Alphabet Cards, and 50x Number Cards).
Kindergarten at Home covers all kindergarten literacy skills through play, which includes phonological awareness, letters, sounds, and introduces sound blending. It is a complete kindergarten literacy program.
Many parents find it helpful to know exactly what they need to teach for a child to learn to read, and some children are ready to progress beyond the skills covered in Kindergarten at Home. For this reason, How Wee Read is the perfect compliment, as it provides you with a complete learn-to-read blueprint. With a tracking sheet to ensure important foundational skills are understood, you will build reading skills one step at a time. We revisit the skills taught in Kindergarten at Home in a new way—using beautiful cards and hands-on activities—and then progress even further. How Wee Read takes your child beyond blending, into special rules and exceptions, and all the way into reading sentences and stories.
Instantly! After purchase, you will be sent an email with a link to download your resources. You will be able to view your materials on your computer, tablet, or phone. You can also print a hard copy at home or at your local print shop. Printed and shipped orders are delivered via Priority Post and generally take 3-6 days to arrive.
