We’re kind of using a hodgepodge of resources for our homeschool kindergarten and thought I’d put a list together to keep everything organized in case anyone is interested in what we use.
Eating the Alphabet – A fun way to teach uppercase and lowercase letters, plus become familiar with a variety of fruits and vegetables (that your kids probably refuse to eat, haha)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – We’re using this as a read-aloud book and it has been so fun to experience the book with Wyatt for the first time. And this illustrated edition is such a pleasure to read from.
Teeth, Tails, and Tentacles – An engaging book that teaches number 1-20, plus about a variety of animals.
Winnie the Pooh First Readers – There’s nothing mind-blowing about these books, but for kids who love Winnie the Pooh they’re a great way to get them interested in reading.
Numbers 0-25 flash cards – Really nice, durable flash cards for a great price.
Sight Words Flash Cards – A freebie from sightwords.com. They have lots of different sight word options, plus you can customize how many you want to print per page.
Jumanji – More fun than educational, but the game-play is a little more complicated which gets their brains moving a bit more.
Monopoly Junior – If you’re not quite ready to move up to regular Monopoly, this is a really fun alternative. Kids learn about numbers, money, and how to be a ruthless real estate tycoon. Or maybe that’s just my kid because he MURDERS me at this game. I swear I’m an adult.
Scotch Thermal Laminator – I have an older version of this laminator and I LOVE it. It’s so easy to use and has come in handy for everything from homeschool to parties.
Laminating Sheets – Can’t laminate if you don’t have the sheets!
Sharpie Pens – Hands down my favorite pens. They write super smooth and don’t bleed through paper.
Polyhedral Dice – These are great for math games, plus you get so many you won’t stress if you lose one or two along the way.
Home Learning Year by Year – We’re taking a relaxed approach to homeschooling (at least for now) but I didn’t want to feel totally adrift, so I picked this book up for guidance. It has been a great resource and a lot of help in deciding what what we need to learn this year.
Colored Paper – I find myself pulling this out more than construction paper because of how fun and bright it is.
Glue Sticks – A must-have for all the kindergarten arts and crafts.
Smead Poly Envelopes – These are nice and sturdy for storing worksheets. I even use them to store craft leftovers to keep them organized. I love that they’re clear so you can what’s inside, plus they close so papers won’t fall out.
ABC Mouse – We’ve had a lot of success with ABC Mouse. Out of all the resources we use, Wyatt definitely enjoys this one the most.
Mead Preschool Workbook – Our favorite workbook so far. The lessons on each page are clear and concise and covers a ton of topics.
A-Z Handwriting Worksheets – A freebie download from Confessions of a Homeschooler. I laminated them and use a dry-erase marker so we can just erase and practice again.
Farm Printable Pack – Great for writing practice and building up some beginner math skills.
