I remember the first year we started homeschooling. I was pregnant with my fourth child, and I seriously had not a clue on what I needed to teach in the kindergarten years.
Since I went to the public school, I mimicked what I only knew–textbooks and more textbooks.
Needless to say, our first homeschool year consisted of many tears from my sons and me. It was only by the grace of God that I continued to homeschool the following year.
Now that I am homeschooling my 6th kindergartener, I have this kindergarten thing down to a tee.
Can I hear an amen?
Not to mention that I am now a single working mother and time is scarce, to say the least. My daughter and I have been thoroughly enjoying this creative, hands-on, all-inclusive Kindergarten curriculum, Kindergarten Complete. It is completely all-inclusive except for library books and low-cost school supplies.
Homeschooling doesn’t get much easier than this.
The detailed lesson plans in “Kindergarten Complete” cover all subjects which are guided around thematic units. It includes a variety of activities that I have never thought of teaching my kindergartener before browsing the detailed daily lesson plans. All the fun activities are geared towards either the auditory, visual, or tactile learner. This approach makes the lessons exciting and worth while for both student and parent.
“Kindergarten Complete” is designed to meet the abilities of an active four-six year old. It is recommended that you spend around two and a half hours per day, but I found that it only takes us about an hour and a half with my five-year old. She does some worksheets and projects independently after I have briefly explained them to her.
“Kindergarten Complete” is broken down into two semesters. Each semester comes in a separate organized binder. I found it to be more beneficial to start in the beginning of a normal school year due to the thematic units. The curriculum includes all daily lesson plans, organization and planning suggestions, and teaching procedures all in the convenience of the binder. You will not have to plan out the school year because all preparations are completely prepared for you. I found the school year overview and appendix at the end of the binder very helpful. I was able to make a list of all the low-cost school supplies and library books we needed for the entire year. I really appreciated that the curriculum uses everyday household items.
I found “Kindergarten Complete” very relaxed but complete. You can be assured that you will not miss a concept with this all-inclusive kindergarten curriculum. It’s truly a homeschool mother’s dream. Your homeschool year will be stress-free and will consist of very little preparation. She is learning phonics and reading skills, sight words, higher-level thinking and problem solving skills and we are only in the first few months of the program. My daughter and I often snuggle on my bed while she does her lessons. It’s a joy for both of us.

Not being a good enough teacher.
This would be very useful as I will have two Kindergartners in the fall!
This curriculum looks great! I start homeschooling my daughter Kindergarten this year! Will put this on my Wish List! 🙂
Looks really good! I’m all about easy and low fuss for the early years!
What scares me the most is that either I’ll miss teaching something important, or I’ll be so worried about it that school won’t be enjoyable for my son.
I’d hope I can hold her attention and I’d hope I wouldn’t loose patience!! A bit scared about those aspects!!
wow, that would be good for my 5 year old. i am teaching but have worries if he didn’t catch up or if i am doing it wrong. curriculum loke this will help me
I’m hoping to hold his attention while teaching him. He’s super active!
Not having patience that I need.
My biggest fear is being able to give him the attention that he needs while also entertaining his 2 year old sister.
That they wont pick up on reading.
That I won’t cover enough throughout the year and my child will be behind.
My son is 4 and he doesn’t like to hold still or do seat work. I’m unsure about getting him to focus enough, so we play many games to learn instead.
We are excited and nervous about Kindergarten! This would make things so much smoother.
The thing that scares me about HS a K, is that we would either get WAAAAAY off track and accomplish very little, or that she would not want to cooperate and do her work. Or BOTH! EEK.
Unknown territory. I didn’t start homeschooling my two oldest boys until 2nd and 3rd grades. They had previously attended pre-k and elementary school.
I’m most worried about my daughter having patience with me and me having patience with her. Sometimes I feel as though kids listen and can be more patient with other adults more than mom.
I’m worried I’ll do something to make my child hate learning.
My fear is that my kindergartner will be too bored with the work
What scares me the most is missing something critical! I don’t want to not cover something I should. My son/almost kindergartener is so smart, and I don’t want to be the reason he falls behind or something. This is my first time homeschooling too 🙂
Getting her to listen. She just turned 4 so we’re not quite ready for kindergarten. I’m just starting to look at curriculum ideas.
What scares me the most is that the year comes to an end and I realize I’ve missed something huge that my child needed to learn.
My 4 year old went to a public preschool. I had to pull him out because he wouldn’t stay by himself, even after 4 months, and now he says he hates school. I am worried about how to erase that memory and start a fresh, brand new time of school being fun and exciting and something he looks forward too!!
this will be my 2nd year doing kindergarten, but my first child pretty much taught himself to read and do many things. My second child learns differently and I am trying to figure out the best curriculum for his learning style. Afraid I won’t pick the right one to fit his need and personality.
I like the themed units…I wanted to do themes with my K this year, but the thought of planning it all was so overwhelming! I like the ready-to-go aspect of this curriculum. 🙂
My almost 4YO is super smart, and extremely active! So, getting him to follow directions the way they’re supposed to be is my #1 concern. I teach older brother and sister at home, so the easier for me, the better!
Not getting them to stay focused and having patience. I have two older kids in school and finding time to help them and teach my lo is hard.
I have two little’s that are going to be starting Kindergarten and my biggest fear is keeping up with them and making sure they are challenged but not overwhelmed.
I am petrified of the unknown, but what I am most scared about is failure.
I’m worried she will be behind her “classmates” I’m also worried about power struggles between us.
I am most afraid of missing something while teaching my youngest kindergarten. My older 2 went to public school and I don’t want my youngest to fall behind.
Thanks for posting this. I’m getting ready to home school for the first time and I’m actually really scared! I have this fear that I won’t be able to do it and keep up with everything else! I think this will help!
This seems like it would take care of my fear that I am going to miss something important.
I am looking to start homeschool with my first child. I am nervous and scared about trying to find enough time to get everything done. Get the school time stuff ready and spend time doing school time with my little kid, but also have time to take care of my other babies and also house things. So a curriculum like this that has it all included will save me a ton of time and stress.
I guess the thing that scares me the most about homeschooling is not being an adequate enough teacher for her. I’m an educator by trade, but I teach college. I’m afraid I won’t be able to teach her everything she needs to know.
I’m scared I wont be able to keep him focused and on task – all while testing myself
My fear is not being able to help them grasp reading
I’m afraid we will start strong and then let life interfere with school time.
What scares me or my fear is that I will not teach her everything that she needs to know.
That she won’t be able to learn as well at home as she may in a classroom.
