Kindergarten Homeschooling Curriculum
Kindergarten Lesson Plans
The Lesson Plans walk you through day-by-day instructions and activities with your child using the curriculum that you receive with your enrollment.
With the activity books and coloring books, your little one will be happy to be homeschooling!
St. Joseph Coloring Books help children begin learning their Faith. Children color pictures and learn about preparing for the coming of Jesus at Christmas, and about His Passion, Death and Resurrection.
In addition to the coloring books for the art curriculum, the Religion curriculum has many coloring books to help children learn about their Faith.
Kindergarten Handwriting for Young Catholics is designed to help develop your child’s fine motor skills. It includes practice pages for the lowercase alphabet letters. We focus on writing lowercase letters in Kindergarten because most of the letters that your child sees when reading are lowercase letters.
Uppercase letters are taught as needed, such as the first letter of your child’s name, but need not be mastered until first grade, when your child is writing sentences.
In Mathematics K for Young Catholics, students recognize and distinguish objects, positions, shapes, and patterns, as well as associating numbers and numerals with different sets of items.
Other skills introduced are counting from one to ten, identifying numerals from 0 to 100, and working with lengths and measuring objects. Kindergartners also learn beginning skills in telling time and working with money.
For this subject there is an audio CD, Songs of Praise, with 19 songs that we offer for Grade K but that are appropriate for any primary or elementary level. The CD is a wonderful collection of songs for children performed by accomplished recording artist, Danny Schneible.
Children will have fun listening and singing along with the many enjoyable tracks. They will learn hymns often sung at Mass and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, which will allow them to feel more a part of the Church community and help them to participate in the prayers and songs.
In the two-part series Phonics K for Young Catholics Part 1 and Phonics K for Young Catholics Part 2, students practice beginning skills in auditory and visual discrimination as they learn to recognize capital and small letters, consonant sounds, and short and long vowel sounds.
Students begin their study of who God is, God’s love for us, God’s creation, sin, Jesus as Savior, the Holy Spirit, grace, the Church, the moral life, Mary, angels, saints, Heaven, and Hell. In addition, students become familiar with the parts of the Mass, the decades of the Rosary, and the Stations of the Cross. Children also learn basic prayers and exhibit fundamental practices of the Catholic Faith, especially the Sign of the Cross, morning and evening prayers, and reverent posture and behavior at Mass.
Religion K has 9 books in all. Throughout, students develop the beginnings of an interior life of faith and prayer. In addition to our book Kindergarten Catechism for Young Catholics, the curriculum includes three coloring books on the Holy Bible, the Rosary, and Mary; three Fr. Lovasik books covering the Seven Sacraments, the Angels, and the Ten Commandments; the popular book Leading the Little Ones to Mary; and the well-loved book, My Jesus and I.
Kindergarten Science for Young Catholics introduces science and the scientific method by providing experiments that can be done at home. Includes suggestions for field trips to museums, zoos, and aquariums and Catholic comments throughout, with a section on what God can do after each lesson.
