Hey friends! Summer is almost over and I’ve been collecting resources and ideas to use with LG this school year! She will be turning 3 in December, so we’ve decided to start a relaxed homeschool preschool routine at the beginning of September.
I am thrilled to share these amazing resources with you all! I have already tested out each of them, and can tell you from experience that LG is loving them so much! I know she’s going to have a BLAST with them this school year, and I will be at ease knowing they are all developmentally appropriate for her!
To check out any of these resources, click the images and you’ll either be taken to a blog post about the resource or directly to them in TeachersPayTeachers. And just a reminder – TeachersPayTeachers isn’t just for classroom teachers! Sign up for free as a homeschooler to access these resources and many others!
The foundation of our lesson plans will mostly consist of 4 main resources. The rest of the resources included in this post will be rotated in and out of our routine!
1. Bible Letter of the Week Activities – This curriculum will be the center of our homeschool routine for years to come! One of the (many) reasons we’ve decided to homeschool is so that Scripture study can be part of our kiddos’ education. Educators know that cross-curricular study is extremely beneficial to students’ learning, and I firmly believe that studying God’s word is no different.
This curriculum will allow us to tie in Scripture to every letter of the alphabet we study, and it’s so differentiated that we will be able to use portions of it for several years! Ashley from Teaching Where You’re Called did an incredibly thorough job with this resource! (If you’re looking for a secular version, Ashley has that too! You can find it here!)

2. Preschool Skills Sensory Bins – This bundle of sensory bins has quickly become a favorite of ours! I created it with my 2.5 year old daughter in mind, with plenty of room for it to grow along with her. It covers counting, letter formation, colors, shapes, and SO much more!
3. Fine Motors Centers – Y’ALL. This set of fine motor centers from Ashley at Just Reed is so much fun!! She gives SO many creative opportunities for little ones to develop their fine motors skills! She has a set for each month of the year, and if you’ve followed me for 2 seconds you know that I LOVE seasonal activities!
4. Preschool Skills Seasonal Sensory Bins – If you’ve been around long, you know we love changing things up with these seasons. This bundle of mine includes all of the same preschool skills as my Preschool Skills Sensory Bins, but with a seasonal twist. We have had a BLAST with these bins, and they’ve added so much seasonal spirit to our school routine!
Additional resources we’ll be rotating into our routine…
By now you’re probably questioning my comment about starting a “relaxed” homeschool preschool routine this Fall. But we certainly won’t be using every single resource every single day! ALL of these resources will grow with LG for YEARS, so I’ll be using bits and pieces this first year! I can’t wait to share with you all how I’ll be planning!
