Teaching Kindergarten at Home

Many of you know I am a former Kindergarten teacher and that my passion is early childhood education. After becoming a homeschooler {reluctantly}, my passion grew to find a way to empower families to feel confident homeschooling the early years. I speak at homeschool conventions and meet hundreds of families each year, and every family I meet ignites that passion! Many people are nervous about educating their younger child at home, the same way I was nervous about teaching middle school and high school at home {which I have now done and it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be}. Over the years, I have developed many resources for homeschooling families and I have something new for you today that I hope will really help those of you wanting to homeschool Kindergarten.

Before I move on, please remember, that although the official word is Kindergarten, your homeschooled child is not locked into a specific “grade,” especially in the early years. It is all about following the lead of the child and finding your child’s sweet spot.

Are you a bit overwhelmed?

One of the things a homeschool educator feels often is OVERWHELMED. Even I did when I taught Kindergarten at home for the first time, and I was a K teacher – I knew what I was doing. But it is different and overwhelming when it’s all on you and it’s YOUR child. My goal is to make things less overwhelming, and one of the ways to do that is to save you time. I have gathered all of our Kindergarten products into a simple membership area called K @ Home, where you can easily access exactly what you need, all on one webpage! No ads, no browsing around, just log in and download what you want!

I created 3 different levels of membership so you can cater your investment to your personal needs. Below I will describe the three different levels so you can make the best choice for your family!

K @ Home Level 1

Level 1 is a simple way to get your hands on ALL of our Kindergarten Literature Units, which are the base of our homeschool Kindergarten. Currently, we have 10 premium units that sell for $3.00 individually. We also have 10 free units. I have plans to add at least 2 more premium units, possibly more. In this section, you will find simple, direct links to all of these units as well as links to the blog posts sharing more about each unit to give you ideas! It really is a time-saver and will make things easier for you! Below you can see a screenshot of the private page so you can see how it is laid out. The screenshot does not show the entire webpage, just the top portion so you can see how it is organized.

K @ Home Level 2

Level 2 includes all of the K Literature Units and all of our alphabet products, as well as our Let’s Explore Colors, and Let’s Explore Shapes! If I create any new ABC, colors, or shapes products they will be added to this section! Below you can see a screenshot of the private page so you can see what you will have access to. The screenshot does not show the entire webpage, just the top portion so you can see how it is laid out. You can see the menu which makes it simple to jump to a specific section of the private webpage.

K @ Home Ultimate

Our Ultimate level includes everything from Level 1 & 2 as well as everything else we have that is geared towards Kindergarten! You even get access to our full programs – Raising Rock Stars Kindergarten, You Can Read Sight Words, and You Can Read Word Families! You get all of our seasonal mega bundles, premium theme bundles, Calendar bundle {updated with the new year when it is released}, Tracing Fun Bundle, and Opposites Bundle!

In addition to what is there now, if I create anything new for Kindergarten it will be added here!

Below you can see a screenshot of the private page so you can see a peek of what you will have access to.

Pricing & Savings Info

If you are a number cruncher like me, you’ll want to know exactly how much you are saving by purchasing a K @ Home membership. I created a Google Doc here with those details! You can see a list of the products included in each level, the savings per level, and the cost of each level. The cost is the lowest currently but will go up as new products are added. The price will be increased before the end of the summer, so if you are wanting to have access for the upcoming school year, don’t wait!

Membership Length

Memberships are valid for 1 year, BUT I have added 3 additional months just for a limited time, so you can rest at ease knowing you’ll have access throughout the entire summer and next school year. Plenty of time to plan and access everything! I have answers to more FAQ here!

I truly hope this new K @ Home membership section is a blessing to many of you! It is my goal to make things easier for you and to save you time, while also supporting my own family through the sales of my products! I have more ideas to add to the membership area, so it will only get better! Grab your K @ Home membership here!
