When I started homeschooling preschool I had no resources other than the library or some books and teacher friends to help me out. There weren’t places to go to get ideas or inspiration.
I have been homeschooling for a very long time, when we had dial up internet and there weren’t a lot of blogs. I don’t even remember searching for resources to help me homeschool, we just made it up as we went along.
I started homeschooling my son when he was 3 years old. He is 20 now. My mother in law was a preschool teacher and she used to send me the cutest crafts and units she put together for her class. We used a lot of those for our homeschool preschool years.
Now, there is so much encouragement, wisdom, advice and inspiration right at your fingertips. I love scouring blog posts and Pinterest for fun ideas. We had 3 more children and I was so excited when I began to find all these amazing preschool homeschool ideas on the internet! It brought so much more life and creativity to our homeschool.
