BookShark's fully-planned, preschool package prepares your child for Kindergarten.
Our Pre-K Instructor's Guide plans each day so you and your preschooler can enjoy the 25 books included in the package. Prepare to enjoy these subjects!
Exploring the World
Provide your child a small glimpse of our large world with the colorful Kids Beginner's World Atlas. They will also be introduced to history and how cities and streets have changed over time. From professions to transportation, this year is an exciting time to explore the world!
Read-Alouds and Language Arts
Read-Alouds are a building block to reading and provides a memorable part of homeschooling that you will share with your child every year with BookShark! Snuggle up and read our collection of stories like Winnie the Pooh and Babe the Gallant Pig!
Dr. Seuss's ABC will help your child learn the sounds of the alphabet while First Thousand Words builds their vocabulary.
Learn about seasons, weather, plants, animals, the ocean and much more!
Starting in Week 11, you will work with hands-on manipulatives to build a math foundation that focuses on patterns, shapes and numbers (recognition, counting and addition/subtraction).
Our Developing the Early Learner series develops your child's abilities in four major areas:
- Motor--left-right tracking, mazes, eye movements, hand-eye coordination
- Visual--similarities, memory, figure-ground distinction and space orientation
- Auditory--similarities, memory, rhyming
- Comprehension--categories, sequence, language, awareness.
Optional Art: Child's Book of Art is an excellent introduction to art. We schedule it and offer it as an option for families that want to introduce art in their preschool year.
Daily Time Requirement:
Less than an hour
When should I start my child in Pre-K?
Our Pre-K package is designed for students age 4 or 5 and is a great introduction to the BookShark method. We expect the Pre-K work to take less than an hour for you and your child. Before you buy, please consider whether or not they are ready to:
- Listen and pay attention when you read together
- Answer questions about what they hear and see
- Sit still for short periods of time
- Play simple games
- Work with you to complete activities
We strongly encourage you to wait if you have concerns about your child's readiness for structured learning. Let them play and explore for a year or two, it is one of the best ways for Pre-K children to learn!
My child is ready to read, can I use the Pre-K package?
Yes! If your child is ready to read, customize your Pre-K program with Level K Readers and Language Arts. To change the Reader level in your package, select the correct level from the “Select a Reading Level” drop-down menu on the “Customize” tab.
