Intentional Learning with Kindergarten Toolkit
As an educator, I love all things educational! I haven’t pushed a whole lot of academics with Graydon. I know he has his entire life and years of school to study, so before I start thinking about school and getting bogged down with the private school vs public school debate, I just want to have fun with it. And I want Graydon to have fun with it too. What I do push is encouragement for a love for learning! There are a few goals that I have for myself as a parents, and one is making sure that my children love learning.
Disclaimer: This post is brought to you in collaboration with Kindergarten Toolkit.
In our home we teach through experiences, we teach through play, we incorporate learning into everything we do. We don’t push and we don’t discourage. I always allow Graydon to take the lead as well.
Everyday I set aside thirty minutes for intentional learning.
During this time I sit down with him, and use some sort of curriculum. This could be anything from flash cards to books. We love using the Kindergarten Toolkit. The Kindergarten Toolkit is based on current kindergarten standards. This allows you peace of mind that you are preparing your child for school. It’s balanced curriculum and simple. It gives you all the tools you need to create fun games, and experiences based around learning for your child!
It includes sheets for assessment, flash cards, a white boarder and 10 goals to work on. All of these materials can be used for so many different activists and allows you to be creative as you would like to be!
Graydon absolutely loves his learning time and I love watching him learn!
