Why Use Preschool Workbooks?
Ready to embark on the new journey of homeschooling your little one with preschool workbooks?
I tend to skip excess workbook usage during the school year and only lean on them over the summer months for my older learners.
However, worksheets and workbooks are absolutely perfect for the toddler and preschool years!
I absolutely love leaning on simple workbooks for this age and here is why…
Keeping Little Ones Busy
Workbooks are perfect for entertaining little hands while you’re busy working on dinner or homeschooling older children. I totally leaned on workbooks for these reasons all the time when my youngest was preschool-aged.
Preparing for School
Utilizing workbooks is such a great way to prep your preschool-aged little one for kindergarten! While bookwork isn’t the end all be all, it truly is one of the great ways children can learn! This is why introducing workbooks at a young age, but leaving all pressure off the table, is a great option for 3 & 4-year-olds.
Introducing Core Concepts
This is hands down the main reason your preschooler should use worksheets or workbooks! Yes, preschoolers need hands-on activities and lots of free play. However, they also need to learn certain concepts before starting any type of formal education.
