Use Workbooks for Preschoolers for Homeschooling Preschool

Homeschool your toddler with fantastic pre-k eduational materials

Children as young as babies and toddlers love books. They are fascinated with books. They enjoy turning the pages and looking at the images. This makes teaching them with workbooks naturally easy. And the beauty of a workbook or activity book is that the child owns it. They are allowed to write and draw in it. Heck, they're supposed to!

As a teacher, I found it much easier to get my students involved in the lesson if I used a workbook versus having them work on their own paper. Something about a workbook is just fun for students. My four year old daughter doodles and draws in her workbooks for preschoolers long after we've completed the lessons in them. She likes to trace over and over the pictures and color every nook and cranny.

I love to use preschool workbooks to teach basic lessons of math, language arts, colors, shapes, and more. But long after the lessons have been completed you can give your preschooler crayons and markers and let them create what ever their imagination dreams up.

      I will definitely be investing in workbooks for my toddler. I taught her the alphabet and numbers 1-10 before her 2nd birthday, and I'm all for teaching her more. I created a lens about how I did it and I'm adding your lens to mine. . . https://hubpages.com/family/how-i-taught-my-toddle...
