Start with Great Read–Alouds
Preschool Plus is a precursor to our Lightning Lit program. Enhance your childrens’ enjoyment of stories
by reading these classics with them. Combined with hands–on activities from The Instant Curriculum assigned
in our Preschool Plus Teacher’s Manual, students gently learn language–arts skills which are also
tied into other curriculum areas, such as math, geography, art, and music. We do offer these two books in a Preschool Plus Pack
at a discount.
What Else Will I Need?
We recommend buying Lauri’s Alphabet Phonics Center Kit (but if you’re on a budget, you could substitute a
cheaper form of letters, e.g., magnetic letters for the fridge, and use your imagination for practicing the alphabet. You will
also need some type of student clock. You may already own some of the books read (listed in order read in the Preschool Plus
Teacher’s Manual) but they could also be found at the library, purchased used, or from someplace like Amazon.com.
An optional Christian Appendix for Preschool Plus which assigns scripture (you will need some sort of Bible your child
can understand), as well as readings from The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers 2 by Tyndale (purchase from
Christianbook.com or Amazon.com) is available to tie the character traits to Bible stories.
The Importance of Reading Aloud
Whether or not you choose to use our program, do choose to read aloud to your preschooler.
- Pass on your family values as you talk about the story.
