Zeva has been a part of the boy’s homeschooling lessons since she was born. Many days she gets actively involved in their lessons even though it’s clear she has no clue what they are learning. However, she has learned that school time is time to be quiet and respectful of those who are in class. Well, now she’s thrilled and eagerly soaking in her own lessons. She even makes sure the boys are just as involved in her lessons as she is in theirs. She is definitely old enough to start Preschool now too. Most preschool students are between the ages 2-5.
When I was approached about doing a sponsored post for Chalk Preschool a free online preschool curriculum program, I honestly thought it was going to be one of those simple basic boring plans. I was in for a nice pleasant surprise after I created an account for us. What we gained instead was an online video resource for kids that is completely FREE.
Here are some screenshots of the student and parent section: (Sorry for the poor quality of photos but I went from the video to straight taking pictures using my iPhone.)
Students are assigned lessons Monday-Friday to do just like a standard school schedule. Of course, since it’s online we’re able to do it when it’s convenient for us. They provide lessons in the core subjects like literacy, math, and science. They include music and dance in the lessons to help your child’s motor skills and to keep them engaged in the lessons. Chalk Preschool also gives parents “hands-on learning” lessons that includes cooking lessons, nature walks, and artistic projects. They break the lessons down into different color classrooms based on the child’s age.
I am beyond thrilled with what this program has to offer Zeva as well as other children. I love how it has videos of people of all ages interacting within them. Considering I have kids who are energetic, I enjoy the fact that she is encouraged to be physically involved with her learning. When she was doing this lesson she was taking it very seriously, but you could tell she was enjoying it. Watch her little hands and how much they are moving, it’s so cute. Here’s a sneak peak video of some of what they offer.
I would definitely recommend this program for any parent who has preschool age kids. It’s free and filled with valuable lessons that are fun and engaging for all who watch them. They also provide suggestions for ways for us as parents to be actively involved in teaching our kids. (Since Zeva is able to operate a computer, I can actually let her hit the play button on these videos and she can watch them on her own too.)
