Homeschooling Lifestyle Parenting

Homeschool Preschool Supplies!

Hi! It’s the third day of our homeschool preschool!

I mentioned in a previous post that I’m as woefully unprepared as I can be. I didn’t do prior research on homeschool preschool curricula (though I was obsessed about them 2 years ago, if that helps…) and didn’t bother preparing a dedicated homeschool area (the home office was a disaster area). Until yesterday, we were just using the kitchen and the living room and the kitchen, but I don’t think the boy even noticed. But I cleared up my half of the home office this afternoon so we’ll probably be able to use it from now on.

Good thing we have homeschool supplies. A lot of them.

Over the years, I’ve collected several workbooks and educational books aside from the classics and picture books. I had also received a couple of Buriboxes (planning to subscribe to more in the coming months), so we have collected art materials.

For those planning to homeschool their preschoolers too (it’s never too late to start homeschooling — that’s one beauty of it!), here’s a list of our homeschool preschool supplies.

Books and Workbooks

Obviously we will have different books and workbooks because it largely depends on where we get our materials from — regular bookstores like National Bookstore and Fully Booked, secondhand bookstores like Book Sale, or online stores like Book Depository. But these are some of the books that we are using:

We aren’t using the Explode the Code book yet. I’m still looking for Levels 1 and 2

    Your list is not only for homeschool because I also buy those stuff so my son can do something at home. I bought Explode The Code in Booksale too. When my son was in Preschool pa gusto ko pa bumili ng laminator for the free worksheets and cards that I’ve downloaded, ang mahal lang.

    I could really feel the excitement of the mom. i so believe too one should have a dedicated place to do the assignments and school activities. Ive read, too, that it would be helpful if there would be a particular time “when to go to school”. Reading this makes me giddy; i would like to homeschool our little man as well and I guess I should start buying and collecting books and educational materials. He is, by the way, still 10months old.

    Can’t wait to put together my supply also but maybe when we’ve already moved out of the house. Murag mawala man ug kalit akong mga ruler ug mga glue gud. Tssssk. Hahahaha.

    Wow ang daming supplies! I remember when I was still a student, mahilig ako maghoard ng pens, pins at colorful papers tapos hindi ko naman gagamitin lols. Ang cute nung sesame street pencil case. Enjoy your homeschooling! 🙂

    I’m definitely going back maybe 1.5 yrs from now and check this list again! haha. That’s if I decide to really homeschool Nate. I’m considering it, but I’m in doubt if I can do it since I work full time. But I’m starting to research about homeschooling and all. Still praying for wisdom kung unsa jud maayo.

    I believe you already had complete supplies. This really makes me excited too, to homeschool my son. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I also made a subscription to Buribox.

    Thanks for sharing! I’m excited to get to homeschooling. Sobrang excited, my baby’s turning 1 pa lang. But it’s never too early to prepare no? 🙂 I’ll save this one for reference.

    Good luck with home schooling!:) Great thing na you have supplies with you that you can reuse.

  • Reply Edel June 25, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    I do admire parents who opt for homeschooling. We did entertain the idea of homeschooling for our daughter before but I guess it was me who chickened out. Haha. Cheers to you! 🙂

    I admire homeschooling families. It looks like you’re more than prepared for the year ahead! Lots of fun I’m sure.

    Ang organize mo ha! Bilib ako sayo Mommy!

    I remember my kids’ preschool asking me to get a plastic apron before for art activities 🙂

    Oooh, I’ve seen Explode the Code being sold in one of the used books sale on FB.

    Okay lang ang walang designated area, mommy. With my kids, I let them do their work wherever they are comfy. Sometimes they sit beside me on the kitchen table, other times, they’re on the floor. Sometimes they’re sprawled on their beds. 🙂 Sometimes sa Starbucks, heehee. I thought nag enroll ka na sa regular school. I’m glad to know you decided to homeschool. You have so much to teach your son.:)

    It’s really interesting to see what other fellow homeschoolers are using. We still have a lot of supplies left too from our Buriboxes. Planning to continue with our subscription too but apparently we have to upgrade to the Young Readers version now.

  • Reply Mommy Levy July 4, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    Printer is one of the things homeschoolers should have kasi ang daming free worksheets online na pwede gamitin. Especially sa hindi masyado marunong mag drawing like me they are really helpful 🙂
