Timberdoodle's review
 
Do you need a customized Preschool Timberdoodle Curriculum?

Are you looking for a complete homeschool curriculum for your preschooler? You'll find that Timberdoodle's Curriculum engages the hands-on learner, reaches for academic excellence, and encourages a growing love for learning. We also stress critical thinking skills and, even at this early grade, working towards independent learning. This program is designed for the two- or three-year-old who is ready for a more intentional approach to learning with an emphasis on activities and conversations rather than worksheets alone. Of course, most preschoolers are eager to have their own workbooks, too, so we've included the very best ones available to be sure you both enjoy this year!

Depending on your child's pace, you will find that this includes enough material for a relaxed two years of learning or a fast-paced one-year approach. Our suggestion? Just jump in and see how your child does. Many preschoolers will be eager to speed ahead, but if you find that your child really isn't there yet, simply slow down and enjoy this all-too-fleeting stage.

Timberdoodle's Scheduling Helps Guide Timberdoodle's Curriculum Guide

This guide helps you to know which books to use when and how to schedule your school year. A weekly checklist is included so that you can verify at a glance that you are including a wide variety of activities in your tiny tot's routine. We don't encourage a detailed daily schedule since no two days are identical for a wee one; at this age especially, a relaxed approach is so much more appropriate!

See sample pages above.



Montessori: Letter Work + Montesorri Number Work

In the innovative, interactive board book, Letter Work, your toddler will learn the sounds and shapes of each letter. Based on the century-old and highly successful Montessori way of teaching, chubby fingers will find these letters, with uber-fine sandpaper texture, irresistible for tracing. Visually appealing and educational in every way, each Letter Work page features basic phonetic sounds; touchable, traceable letters; and an elegantly simple illustration to provide context.

Following the Montessori method, the interactive Montessori Number Work introduces quantities to count before teaching the numerals. Groupings of beautiful, slightly retro illustrations provide objects to count before your toddler turns the page to find the correct fine sandpaper numeral to trace with his fingers. This approach of focusing on the concrete before the abstract has been highly successful for over a century.

Montessori: Letter Work

Lauri Alphabet Puzzles Lauri Alphabet Puzzles

As children manipulate the three-dimensional, bright, crepe foam rubber letters in the Lauri Alphabet Puzzles, they increase visual and tactile perception, shape discrimination, and hand-eye coordination. For the youngest, think of these as fabulous perception puzzles (just think of how similar E & F, O & Q, R & P, and M & N are). At two, most toddlers are able to pick out each letter by name. Older children can match lower case and upper case, put together words, and use the puzzles for phonics games.


Big Book of Things to Spot

Usborne's Big Book of Things to Spot contains four titles in one volume, making it the book to take along on a trip when you know there will be waits or delays. This book is crammed with over 4000 things to spot on a farm, in the town, or pertaining to animals or history. While searching the colorful, beautifully illustrated pages, your preschooler will learn the names of both animals and objects. You will also discuss numbers, counting, colors, shapes, and differences. Just doing a page or two a day will enrich your child's vocabulary in a way that you both will find enjoyable.

Big Book of Things to Spot

Mathematical Reasoning Beginning 1 Mathematical Reasoning Beginning 1

Mathematical Reasoning Beginning 1 is a highlight for this age. The activities are simple, engaging, and colorful. Whether it is pointing to the group of four yellow horses or crossing off the fish eaten by the cat, this book is a perfect introduction to the basics of math. At this age, math is an interesting puzzle to be solved, and Mathematical Reasoning will not let it become tedious to your child.


Building Thinking Skills Beginning

You and your child are sure to enjoy Building Thinking Skills Beginning. The colorful pages and (often) lap-friendly activities provide a perfect way to build his emerging thinking skills. Includes fun riddles, multiple component descriptions (e.g., point to the one that is blue and has a corner), finish-the-picture activities, opportunities for him to tell the story behind the pictures, and much more.

Day and Night Smart Game
Day and Night

Logic for toddlers? I love this Smart Game! Renowned for their single-player games for the older child, Smart Games now has games for the littlest thinker. Day and Night Logic Game is a charming game of logic using colors, shapes, and silhouettes. Each challenge is incrementally more difficult than the last and is geared for your child's growing and developing thinking and motor skills.


Wedgits 20-Piece Tote

There is an amazing amount of spatial and geometric learning to be discovered with the use of Wedgits. The Wedgits 20-Piece Tote, with slightly larger pieces for little hands, is designed especially for two- and three-year-olds. Also includes a Wedgits Building Board and forty-eight design cards, all bundled in a handy carry tote. From simple recognition of the pieces to complex designs, the design cards are grouped into four graduated building levels, growing in complexity to provide a continual challenge for your child's reasoning and manipulative skills. This set will challenge your child's dexterity as well as her creative thinking skills.

Wedgits 20-Piece Tote

Draw and Learn Faces
Draw and Learn Faces

Draw & Learn Faces is an adorable pre-drawing book to help children of all artistic abilities make essential precursory steps to reading and writing. Colorful pages include space for toddlers to add features, from bulbous noses, spiky eyelashes, and crooked teeth, to wavy hair and fuzzy whiskers. Plus there are pages needing a simple splash of color to complete them, perfect for young children just learning to grasp a crayon.


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.

PRESCHOOL COMPLETE
(also includes everything in Basic Kits)
Timberdoodle's Complete Curriculum Kits include everything listed above plus loads of science, fine-motor skill manipulatives, alphabet tools, and enjoyable books that add sparkle to learning time.

G is for Goat G is for Goat

We suggest reading a new alphabet book every week with your preschooler to help him become familiar with the letters and their sounds. (Your local library will save you a fortune this year!) To get you started though, we've included our very favorite alphabet book, G is for Goat. With the super-sweet illustrations and engrossing look at the life of goats from the perspective of a very young farmer, this book has a ton of appeal to parents and kids alike! Reading should be pleasurable, and at this age that is easy to attain.


Farmland Math

What do you get when you mix a bold, bright, farm-themed play mat with 30 vibrant jumbo farm animals? A crazy-smart curriculum to introduce toddlers to the wonders of math and thinking skills! Farmland Math is 36 weeks of straightforward skill-building math. Gradually spiralling concepts include grouping, counting, patterns, plus rudimentary addition and subtraction skills. Includes a table-size, durable, wipe-clean mat that zips to become a convenient carry-case for the 30 jumbo animals, plus Timberdoodle's exclusive Farmland Math manual to guide you along the way.

Farmland Math

Bunny Peek-A-Boo Bunny Peek-A-Boo

What a delightful brain game for your two- and three-year-olds! As they arrange the large, sturdy wooden blocks and lovable bunny to match the cards, they will learn prepositions such as on, behind, and under, as well as develop the critically necessary skill of 3-D spatial perception, important for reading and mathematical reasoning. Bunny Peek-A-Boo includes sixty challenges printed on individual cards; a red, yellow, and blue block; and, of course, the sweet bunny.


Big Book of Play and Find Out Science Projects

Teaching science to your three- and four-year-olds has never been easier. Using the Big Book of Play and Find Out Science Projects as a guide, you and your child will explore physical science, nature, bugs, and the human body in a way that will engage and excite. Loads of simple experiments using ordinary household products will explain important concepts like why we wear seatbelts, why our bones are hard, how butterflies drink, and why cats' eyes glow. This age group especially learns basic scientific concepts best with hands-on experiments, and Big Book of Play and Find Out Science Projects does not disappoint with over fifty easy-to-do activities.

Big Book of Play and Find Out Science Projects

Twisty Droppers Twisty Droppers

These cheery eyedroppers add a playful dimension to building fine-motor skills and teaching cause and effect. The perfect size for preschoolers, Twisty Droppers are a grand supplement for early science exploration, and to build little hand muscles, too. Each Twisty Droppers is six inches long. Colors will vary.


H2O la la!

Many science experiments are enhanced by the use of colored water. H2O la la's tablets are completely safe, non-staining, and are the easiest way to add striking color to water. American-made for children and with no added oils, fragrances, or soap, H2O la la's tablets will delight your child with fizzy action and a dazzling burst of color. Includes 300 tablets, assorted in both size and color: red, yellow, and blue!

Primary Science Kit Primary Science Kit

We were smitten the first time we saw Learning Resources Primary Science Kit, and apparently we weren't the only ones. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio 2010 Gold Seal Award, Primary Science Kit is a collection of ten durable, plastic, easy-to-grip replicas of real-life science lab tools. Simple science instruments sized just right for smaller, clumsier hands, these tools are not just for play. Each chunky tool actually works. Tiny bugs are magnified, measurement markers are accurate, and the sturdy tweezers add a dimension that less extensive sets leave out. The ten colorful, double-sided activity cards encourage scientific inquiry and curiosity. Your children will have a blast pouring, mixing, combining, and measuring their concoctions.


Threading Zoo

These zoo animals will do more than just polish your child's fine-motor, hand-eye coordination, and dexterity skills. The beautifully crafted wooden Threading Zoo Animals introduce matching and spatial relationships as your little one adds stripes to the zebra, scales to the crocodile, and a bit of color to the lion's mane. Brightly colored, oversized Threading Zoo Animals are not just gorgeous, but also easy to hold, plug and thread.

My First ScissorsLet's Cut Paper Set of 3 My First Scissors+ Let's Cut books

The Creativity for Kids My First Scissors are really cool, chunky fish scissors that make cutting paper easier for little hands. The ergonomically designed, bright orange and yellow scissors operate with a spring mechanism, are for both right-handed and left-handed use, and feature blades with rounded points for safety. Officially for ages 4+, we've included them in preschool simply because we haven't been able to find safer or better beginning scissors.

Learning to safely use a pair of scissors seems to bring extraordinary joy to young children. In Kumon's Let's Cut Paper series, your child will learn how to hold and control scissors, proceeding from the simple one-stroke cuts of a dog's whiskers to the more complicated zig-zag lines of a king's crown. Pages are sturdy enough to manage, but not so thick as to be difficult to cut.

PRESCHOOL ELITE
(also includes everything in Basic and Complete Kits)
Our Elite Curriculum Kits include all of the materials listed above along with even more bells and whistles such as puzzles, Bubber, and even a ride-on puppy!

Jumbo Bananagrams

Bananagrams for toddlers? Yes! The all-new, oversized Jumbo Bananagrams tile is an indestructible, substantial three-inch square, so it is safe even for your little guys. Your child can match tiles, locate a particular letter, or, to really challenge his auditory memory, find a short series of letters. Turn the tiles over and play a memory game, put the tiles in alphabetical order, or spell simple words. Once you get started, you will be astonished at all that you can do with Jumbo Bananagrams!

Jumbo Bananagrams

Goki Slider Board Goki Slider Board

This heirloom-quality, German-designed educational tool will keep busy fingers occupied for hours as your child tries to arrange the colors and solve the sixteen pattern cards. The Goki Puzzle Board's beautiful wood finish makes the task of sorting even more pleasurable. While fulfilling this age's need for lots of visual discrimination and fine-motor skills practice, Goki Puzzle Board adds the additional skill of thinking ahead.


Draw and Learn Animals

Draw & Learn Animals is another adorable pre-drawing book to help children of all artistic abilities make essential precursory steps to reading and writing. Colorful pages include space for toddlers to add details to a variety of animals. Plus there are pages needing a simple splash of color to complete them, perfect for young children just learning to grasp a crayon.

Draw and Learn Faces

The Complete Book and CD Set of Rhymes, Songs, Poems, Fingerplays, and Chants Complete Book of Rhymes

And because actions, movement, and dances are associated with children's rhymes and songs, your child's gross-motor skills will flourish!


Big Oball

Bigger circles, bigger holes, bigger ball, bigger action. Everything about the Big Oball is bigger. Yet it is just as smooth and shiny, and just as indestructible, as the Oball Rattle. Kick it, stomp it, crush it, and the Big Oball bounces right back to a perfectly formed sphere. Made of silicone, the Oball is lightweight and durable; just pop it in your dishwasher when the need arises. Multi-colored.

Big Oball

Best Bugs Magnetic Maze

Bubber and Castle Molds
Bubber and Castle Molds

Imported from Sweden, Bubber is an excellent source of tactile stimulation, improving gross- and fine-motor skills in a satisfyingly gentle way. Startlingly light, it leaves clean, sharp edges when cut and precise impressions when imprinted. Children enjoy working with Bubber because it is not sticky or gritty; it actually feels warm in their hands. And because it is so very soft, even the tiniest or weakest hands can shape this compound. Bubber is messy, so indulge when housework can take a backseat to creativity. But it never leaves a residue, never dries out, and cleans up quickly and easily--you can even use your vacuum! Five ounces of Bubber comes in a convenient storage bucket. We also include a safe knife and molds to make round and square pillars. What will your child make first? Castles? Muffins? The perfect birthday cake?
