Itty Bitty Preschool Curriculum and Corner Stork Baby Gifts Giveaway

Itty Bitty Bookworm Preschool CurriculumI've heard many of my friends say that they've considered the idea of homeschooling. Here in Alaska there is a lot of support for families who decide to go this route but if you're like me you might wonder how well you could handle being responsible for your child's education.

Well a good way to find out is to try some home preschool classes as a test run. The Itty Bitty Book Worm is a literature-based preschool curriculum for children ages 18-36 months and ages 3-5. If you're considering homeschool as an option why not try out a preschool curriculum aimed at fostering a love of reading and increasing creativity? Each week has you reading a different classic children's story then doing activities and play to reinforce the topics and lessons the book describes.

Corner Stork Baby GiftsCheck it out--when my children were young I did home preschool classes (none of my kids went to formal preschool) and it created some wonderful memories and gave the kids a great start at their education. I would also recommend checking out the Itty Bitty Bookworm blog as well for other great ideas.

Also today I'm mentioning Corner Stork Baby Gifts which has a fun selection for the baby in your life--don't you love this little mink coat (of course the price tag is telling me that it's not really mink but the idea is too cute isnt' it?)

Snake Toy from Corner Stork Baby GiftsThey have pages and pages of gifts for under $25 too, of which this snake toy pleases me most heartily. What a fun and creative (and inexpensive) baby gift!

So this weekend's winner will receive one of the Itty Bitty Bookworm curricula (their choice) for themselves along with a $25 gift certificate to Corner Stork Baby Gifts. You could get three snake toys and pass them out to everyone!

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Monday morning click here to reach the giveaway entry form then enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.

This giveaway is open to all readers so good luck!

I am on the fence about the homeschool idea. I think it would be wonderful to control the curriculum my child is learning and know he's being taught with patient guidance, but at the same time would the lack of social interaction with children his own age become an issue? Thank you for the book recommendations, I am going to check them out.

I'm off to check out the preschool curriculum. I was just perusing some other options online and at the bookstore. As usual, quite a timely post for me!

I am seriously thinking about homeschooling my son and while researching ideas, I ran into your blog! He has been home with me for the past 5 years and we did just fine and now that he is in Kindergarten, I am concerned. Thanks for the tips!
