Timberdoodle's Scheduling Helps Guide

This guide helps you know which books to use when and how to schedule your school year. A weekly schedule is included to give you enough structure to make sure your child doesn't miss anything, without the stress of an overly specific plan that leaves no room for the give and take of real life.

See the sample pages in the pictures above.


By kindergarten, most students are fascinated by books and are truly ready to become eager readers, as long as they are not pushed too hard and fast. The Reading Lesson is ideal for this age with its easy pace, large text, and adorable line drawings. The logical progression of using both phonics and developmentally-appropriate sight-words (without all the rules) makes this program successful for these beginning readers. This is a very appealing program that doesn't take much time to implement.

The Reading Lesson Book

Language Lessons for Little Ones 2

When you think of grammar, do you think of endless memorization and lengthy, tedious workbooks, suitable only for the most meticulous older student? If so, you're not thinking of Language Lessons! Language Lessons is the finest implementation of the Charlotte Mason method of instruction we've seen. The short daily lesson may include a picture study with a full-color painting, poetry appreciation, narration, copy work, or more. With only a few minutes at a time, your child will already begin cultivating language skills in kindergarten!


Because we know that handwriting is a learned motor skill requiring regular practice, doesn't it seem that if your child is going to labor over something with his mind and hands, he should also engage his heart? A Reason for Handwriting does all three, even integrating Bible verses into later grades! In kindergarten, your student will focus on one letter per lesson built around a Creation theme.

A Reason for Handwriting - Kindergarten

Tick Tock I Love Reading Set A

What are we looking for in beginning readers? They must be phonics-based, the storyline needs to be worth the effort, and of course outstanding illustrations that engage a child are a lovely bonus. Our Tick Tock Readers Kindergarten Set does that and more. We've compiled a set for your kindergartener that is just right for your brand new reader. You will want to set them aside until your child has completed enough of The Reading Lesson to enjoy the readers, then allow your child the thrill of reading a "real book" all by himself!


Math doesn't need to be tedious, and Mathematical Reasoning proves that with its bright pages, interesting story problems, and critical-thinking-based approach. Concepts spiral gradually, so that children do not forget as they go, and are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. At this age, math is an interesting puzzle to be solved, and Mathematical Reasoning will not let it become tedious to your child.

Mathematical Reasoning A Kindergarten

Developing the Early Learner

Children need to be taught how to think and how to reason, and the sooner the better, as 75% of a child's IQ will be developed before seven years of age. Developing the Early Learner fleshes out all four fundamental perception skills--visual, auditory, motor, and comprehension--via a gently progressive sequence of enjoyable activities. Very easy to use, this series of workbooks helps you discover and overcome your children's learning weaknesses while building their strengths. One test found that 95% of children who took the program significantly increased in their learning abilities!


What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know emphasizes reading aloud to your child and also has ideas for a wide variety of activities. It includes twenty nuggets of history located in the middle of the book. These short stories about famous figures or simple synopses of USA history will help your child continue to develop the basics of a historical perspective and prepare him for jumping into a formal history program next year. One note: Don't feel obligated to do it all. (For instance, our family would not have read many of the fairy tales and fables at this age.) We primarily include it for its history, art, music, and math sections, so make those your priority and use the rest of the ideas as extra activities if time allows and your child is looking for more.

What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know

Beginning Geography

Starting with the basics, Beginning Geography explains how a map works by mapping a child's bedroom. From there your child will develop map proficiencies, learn about animals around the world, and much more. Includes two big, full-color, fold-out maps for you to hang up and discuss! Based on National Geography Standards.


The Usborne Big Drawing Book simplifies drawing lessons for your kindergartener, enabling your child to create simple drawings in a series of easy steps. From people, to animals, to castles, this delightful and colorful drawing book will yield satisfying results for your beginning artist. Includes nearly 50 two-page activities. For those who need to know, there is one activity where your child would draw a modest mermaid.

KINDERGARTEN COMPLETE
(also includes everything in Basic Package)
Timberdoodle's Complete Curriculum Kits include everything listed above plus loads of science, history sticker books, a complete set of GEOpuzzles, and additional hands-on tools to add sparkle to learning time.

Kid-O a to z Magnatab lowercase

The a to z Magnatab is the ideal tool to help your child focus on forming letters correctly and consistently. Your child will eagerly trace each letter with the magnetic stylus just to see and hear the little metal balls snap to the surface to make the letter. Then, to further help him develop a feel for each letter, lightly trace over the letters with the tip of a finger and the metal balls clatter back into the a to z Magnatab base. One tool, two approaches to teach young children how to write the alphabet.


From the one-inch ladybug cube to the twelve-inch giraffe rod, Inchimals by Fat Brain Toys are all you'll need to introduce your young child to math. Inchimals comes with 100 write-on/wipe-off math puzzles in a spiral-bound book that explores counting, number value and recognition, addition, subtraction, equivalent sums, and multiple numbers. The colorful activities in the Inchimals book are designed to increase in difficulty so that your child will be challenged, but not overwhelmed, as he progresses through the book.

Inchimals by Fat Brain Toys

Logik Street

There is no better way for your kindergartener to learn logic than with his hands. Logik Street will help your child develop logic, comprehension, visual tracking, mental organization, and real-life problem-solving skills. Manipulating the colorful pieces as he analyzes each clue will help him to identify logical associations between people, places, and pets. With step-by-step instructions and pictorial solutions on 84 cards that spiral in difficulty, Logik Street can be used with older siblings as well!


The ever-popular Big Bag of Science has over seventy amazing experiments to enjoy with your child; this is a Timberdoodle favorite for a reason! Experiments range from exploring polymers with Insta-Snow, to making Stretching Slime, growing Garbled Marbles, and even testing family members for the PTC gene! Includes a thirty-six-week Timberdoodle-exclusive manual that combines Big Bag of Science with the other science components to make a complete science course for your kindergarten student.

Big Bag of Science

The Usborne First Illustrated Science Dictionary

A science dictionary in kindergarten? The Usborne First Illustrated Science Dictionary is a charming way to gently introduce essential science terms and concepts to your young child! With hundreds of bright illustrations and useful examples, this resource will captivate pre-readers and readers alike. Set aside a smidgen of each day to read a page or two to your child, and you'll be amazed at how much he will absorb and benefit from that familiarity in the years to come. You just might have a hard time keeping your older children from snatching this engaging book away from your kindergartener!


Before your kindergartner can begin to study history, she needs to know what history is. Bede's History of Me was written to lay the foundation for a better understanding of timelines; geography; family, church, and holiday history; and more. Designed to be used only once a week, Bede's History of Me makes an ideal exploratory introduction to history.

Bede's History of Me

Usborne Sticker Dressing Soldiers

Young children seem to have a natural fascination with exploration and historical adventures. That makes the Usborne Sticker Dressing series the perfect fit for a kindergartner as a friendly and fascinating introduction to history. After all, if your child understands the knights and explorers of different times, he or she will have a better grasp of history itself. From the Normandy knights in their pointy helmets and tough chain mail shirts, to Sir Galahad's surcoat and scabbard, Sticker Dressing Knights will teach your child the appropriate dress for each figure; tiny bites of history will be absorbed as your child finds the correct armor and learns about the different weaponry. Sticker Dressing Explorers follows famous explorers on daring journeys through the ages, from sailors who sailed the ocean waves to deep sea divers and astronauts who walked on the moon. Around 200 stickers and multiple scenes per book equip your child to join in the adventure.


Using Geopuzzles, your kindergartner can learn with amazing accuracy the countries of Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Asia, as well as the states of the USA, with no effort on your part. Geopuzzle pieces are shaped like individual countries or states, so children learn as they put the puzzles together. Jumbo-sized and brightly-colored, Geopuzzle pieces are easy for chubby hands to manipulate. As children assemble the puzzles, they learn not only each country's name, shape, and capital, but where the country is located and how the entire continent fits together; all the while, they are building their thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and spatial awareness.

Geopuzzles

Chirp Chirp Colors Paint Kit

Ready to introduce your kindergartner to the thrill of painting? Both practical and inspiring, Chirp Chirp correctly assumes that children prefer to create only after they have some basic skills. With everything your very young artist needs to understand how to mix paint colors, Chirp Chirp provides him with amazingly simple instructions and lovely materials to work with. Best of all? The finished paintings are entirely wall-worthy, perfect for your child's bedroom, dad's office, or Grandma's apartment!


Jumbo Pencil 2-pack + Fish Pencil Sharpener

A standard-sized pencil is often difficult for sweet, chubby fingers to grasp. These Jumbo Pencils make gripping easier with their large surface area, triangular shape, and appealing grippy nubs.

Faber-Castell Fish Sharpener is a child-sized sharpener that can sharpen both regular and jumbo-sized pencils. It has a compartment to contain messy shavings and a bonus eraser cap to keep the shavings where they belong, which is all you really need. That the same sharpener is fun to look at is just a bonus! The ergonomic, high-quality Faber-Castell Fish Sharpener is both functional and fun and makes a perfect addition to any homeschooler's desk.

Skwooshi - 2 pack

Nurture your kindergartener's budding creativity and watch him go on to invent, imagine, and problem-solve. Skwooshi can be molded and shaped to unleash your child's creative side without destroying your home. Gluten-, wheat-, and odor-free Skwooshi won't stick to your carpet, furniture, papers, or books, and won't ever dry out. Squeeze to make it firm, and Skwooshi will hold a textured imprint or make detailed sculptures more precisely than any dough. Gently loosen and it becomes soft, airy, and malleable. Assorted colors, two in every pack.


KINDERGARTEN ELITE
(also includes everything in Basic and Complete Packages)
Our Elite Curriculum Kits include all of the materials listed above along with even more bells and whistles such as games, a massive and gorgeous construction kit, more readers, and even maze books!

What child doesn't love the challenge of mazes? Mazes allow your child the opportunity to practice basic pencil control in an enjoyable, exciting way. These pencil skills are necessary for the legible writing of letters and numbers. Plus, because mazes are naturally absorbing, they help your child acquire the ability to reason, interpret, understand, and concentrate. These elemental skills are essential for later academics.

BrainBox My First ABC

BrainBox games are not only a blast to play, but they can be extremely effective for developing essential memory skills. BrainBox My First ABC, with its profusion of colorful pictures, is a terrific way to reinforce both the alphabet and words associated with each letter. Your child will study a game card for ten seconds trying to memorize a variety of features. A die is rolled, and if the player can answer the corresponding question (e.g. How many spots were on the ladybug? What color was the butterfly?), the card is his.


Pajaggle Deluxe is the brain-tingling union of perplexing puzzle and electrifying game. Solving Pajaggle involves discerning not only very slight shape differences and locating the appropriate missing pieces, but also identifying the occasional piece within a piece called a Pajaggle Doubler. Pajaggle Deluxe is equipped with two complete sets of game pieces in different colors. If you have multiple children or if your child wants to play against dad, simply give each player his own set. The player who gets more of his color of Pajaggle pieces in the board wins. Tremendous as a brain-builder, the multi-sensory process actually means activity is happening on both sides of the brain!

Pajaggle Deluxe

Tegu Excursion

Any wooden block has the potential to improve children's math, language, and creativity skills. But no other blocks can defy gravity like Tegu's. Tegu Excursion combines striking Honduran hardwoods with strong, invisible magnets and Timberdoodle's exclusive e-book with 36 models, plus bonus models to build. Built to inspire whimsical play for generations, Tegu's natural colors, smooth finish, and simple design make it stand out from all that is ubiquitous and short-lived. Tegu Excursion contains 42 blocks in eight shapes plus four wheels to get those models moving.


Would you like to introduce simple circuits to your kindergartner without placing a soldering iron in his hands? Then you need the Squishy Circuits Hardware Kit. Using homemade conductive and resistant playdough, your child will build electronic sculptures that light up and make sounds. Because it is playdough, your child will be able to explore a playful side of electricity in a fun, hands-on way. Squishy Circuits explores series and parallel circuits, polarity, and the creation of complex switches. Requires four AA batteries, not included.

Squishy Circuits Kit

Look Inside Your Body

Introduce your pre-med kindergartners to the way their bodies work in the fun and informative book Look Inside Your Body. With over 100 flaps to lift (including flaps under flaps!), your children will learn about their bodies inside and out. What happens to the food they eat, and where do babies grow? Don't be alarmed, Look Inside Your Body's answers to those questions will not make Grandma blush.


Art should be fun and delightfully satisfying in Kindergarten, and that's exactly what the Djeco Ball-and-Stick Light Clay Kit delivers. Ball-and-Stick is a brilliant clay modeling kit using four pre-printed boards for children to work on. By following the color and number codes, your child will create vividly colorful clay animal creations using just two shapes. The vibrant clay in Ball-and-Stick is ultra-light, easy to work with, and air dries within 24 hours.
