For the past couple months I've been developing a curriculum to teach my 3-year-old, Stephen, about topics more interesting and meaningful than typical preschool stuff, and it's been going REALLY well.
We've learned about pioneers, the Kosovo War, lion pride dynamics, the President's roles, how to read a weather radar, gender inequality, and tons more. Most importantly, we've learned how all these things relate to us, and usually we can find ways that our new knowledge can propel us to action.
My husband thought it could be a helpful resource to other parents and caregivers, so I'm gradually putting the PDF's and supplemental activity ideas here on my website (for free of course!)
They're really simple to execute, and though I had preschool-age in mind, I think all children would benefit from learning about history, science, mechanics, anthropology, etc. on their own level. It's been a rich time of growth for everybody and this curriculum is one of my main tools for showing my kids how to live and think rightly (if you think that's brainwashing, remember that ALL parents use their own worldviews to teach their children.)
You can see instructions and check out the curricula here!
I hope to add 10 new lessons each month. I went to great lengths to make sure all the images I used were legal either under Creative Commons licensing or original sketches by my friend Renee.
I hope you enjoy and it's meaningful for you and your family!
