books for preschool

Postby AmberP » Fri Feb 12, 2021 4:20 am

I have a question. What books do you use for your children before you start homeschooling? Alphabet, sounds, and things like that. I use books like thesehttps://top-mom.com/best-books-for-toddlers/, my son liked the musical ones I heard they use them in school now too. Why I am asking, it's a problem that I want to teach my child from the very beginning.

Hey Amber, what a great question, my kids, I wish they loved reading but i'd go as far as to they tolerate it and I think that's the best I can hope for haha. I tell you what's been a lifesaver for me is that my wife took out this subscription to Twinkl https://www.twinkl.co.za/resources/twinkl-originals?age=eyfs. It's great, they have all the books available, I can get them right on my phone or the computer and they even come with fun games and activities to support the learning https://www.twinkl.co.za/resources/twinkl-originals/ks1-twinkl-originals-key-stage-1. Also the drawings are actually really good.

Hi, Amber!

I can vouch for Twinkl, too. I'd second Dan and also say there are some really great phonics resources on there to go along with the stories Dan mentioned. Here's one I found that's free to download, if that helps https://www.twinkl.at/resource/t-l-1066-initial-sounds-worksheet. It's for initial sounds so perfect to start off with and start making those connections with sounds in the stories :)

Another freebie I found on there is the Reading Scheme for KS1, so when they're ready there are so many great phonics based books to try with some lovely stories. My kids love them and the illustrations are really cute https://www.twinkl.de/resource/free-reading-scheme-books-taster-pack-t-e-2551126.

Hope this helps!
