Homeschool Pre-K Curriculum Plans

“Pre-K Curriculum” is almost an oxymoron. Four-year-olds should play, hear good stories, and play, play, play!

All that being said, there’s no reason not to have a few intentional plans for our pre-k year. I know my 4-year-old will want to “do school” since he’ll see his big sisters doing it; he wants to be included in everything they do! However, I’m determined to keep it simple and fun!

Our Super-Simple Plans for Pre-K:

Morning Board

My focus for our morning board is the 1st grader, but there’s plenty here a preschooler can learn, too. Bonus for me: if I can convince him that “tomorrow” is not a day of the week, conversations about when we’re doing what will be so much easier!

I’ll share a post with more about our morning board later, but in short, we discuss calendar and weather, weekly memory verse and character trait, and work on memorizing our address, etc.

My preschooler will be listening in to read-alouds for the 1st grader, and I’m sure she’ll be wanting to listen in on his as well!

Just a few of our planned preschool read-alouds:

We’ll use many of the book suggestions and “extra ideas” on ABC Jesus Loves Me, a free online preschool curriculum. When he feels like sitting down at the table with us, I’ll have him do a page or two in his preschool workbooks from Rod and Staff.

Nature Study


We’ll do plenty of relaxed, fun nature studies. We don’t have to do preschool-specific studies; he’ll learn alongside the bigger kids. We’ll do nature studies like Barb’s Outdoor Hour Challenges; we’ve done these since my 7th grader was a kindergartener! I also like Maureen’s preschool science ideas and plan to try making her paper bag nature journals!

And that’s it!

That’s all I have planned for our super-simple year of homeschool pre-k!
