Encompass Preschool Week 1

Encompass Curriculum Logo

Welcome to our FIRST preschool in review day.   Last week we began officially homeschooling with Peanut.  Her first week of preschool was a blast.  We had so much fun.  What does preschool look like in our house?  Basically for us preschool is just organized play.  We incorporate the use of workboxes to help us create a routine but each box is filled with very eclectic activities.  We love to read, paint, color, sing, and more.  Just to give you a taste here’s our week in review.

      I imagine he is soaking up more than you think. It’s amazing what Peanut remembers from Bible stories we read months ago. Way to go with all the ABCs, shapes, colors, animals, and counting practice. He will definitely be ahead of the game when you decide to begin…which will be here before you know it!

    I LOVE this preschool curriculum! I have been looking for a long time and finally came across this one and it is perfect. I have been using this curriculum with my almost 4 year old and he loves it, too. Every morning he eagerly asks what he gets to do for the day. Great job!
