My goal from the beginning of Reading to Discover has been to help moms of preschoolers by providing them with encouragement, resources, tips & tricks for homeschooling their littles. As a former teacher, I’ve always loved to use my creativity to create curriculum and activities for kids, so it made sense for me to create curriculum to share. Ultimately I knew I wanted to create a physical product and you guys, I DID IT! Six books of preschool activities will soon be available... printed and shipped to your door! No more trying to figure out activities for your preschooler or using all.the.ink to print out pages and pages of activities. I’ve got your back- I created activities, complimentary books, sample schedules and very simple supply lists so you can DO the activities, not waste your time planning them. The books span A-Z and provide at least 6 1/2 months of activities. They will be available one at a time, on a monthly subscription, or you can purchase all six at once for a discount! I’m so happy to be able to offer this solution and help make your life a tiny bit simpler! #preschool #preschoolactivities #preschoolathome #preschoolathomewithmommy #cisforcrayons #homeschoolpreschool #newproduct #printables #homeschool #homeschoolplanning #homeschoollife #homeschoolprek #homeschoolmom #homeschoolpreschool #momshelpingmoms #makelifeeasier #simplifyschool #preschoolisfun #makingmemories #learningtogether #letslearntogether #homeschoolcurriculum #preschoolcurriculum
The kids were looking at some @chatbooks from 2 years ago and were inspired to have some fun in the water like they were then (hose+slide+pool). I didn’t have the energy to set it up AND I was about to make dinner. So, instead of saying no, I said “sure, but you have to figure out how to make it happen by yourselves.” Guess what?! They did! I give my kids a lot of freedom, and I make a lot of mistakes, but wow I love empowering them on the small things now so they are empowered on the big things later. Also dinner is in the oven and now I can relax with my #whiteclaw and enjoy their joy! #parenting #dogdaysofsummer #preschool #kindergarten #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #siblings #trampoline #pleasedonthurtyourself #proudmama #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoollife
Last week was good, happy, frustrating and intense... all at the same time. (See my stories!). We are using this Labor Day to hunker down, relax, and get reset for the upcoming week. It’s not our “normal” for a holiday weekend, but this year my husband and I (mostly my husband) decided we needed some down time together as a family and wow was he right. Attitudes have been adjusted, rest has been achieved, and memories have been made! I’m so grateful for this unbelievable life we get to live, even amongst heartbreak, chaos, and sin. How has your weekend been? Have you had a chance to reflect on what you are grateful for as we transition to a new season of life? #preschool #preschoolactivities #preschoolathome #preschoolteacher #preschoolhomeschool #kindergarten #kindergartenclassroom #thegoodandthebeautiful #gratefulheart #seasonschange #seasonsoflife #labordayweekend #laborday #relaxing #familytime #letstakeanap
I was not prepared for this morning... emotionally or physically. Turns out getting out the door by 8 is a hard ask after 6+ months of SLOW mornings. Audra still made it to her FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN in time and with only a few tears at goodbye. I can’t wait to hear what stories and ideas she comes home with. 💙💙💙 #readingtodoscover #kindergarten #howisthispossible #homeschool #homeschoolkindergarten #firstdayofschool #five #siblings
Audra starts kindergarten in 11 days. #readynotready We decided to send her to a school that is a homeschool / in-school hybrid. She will be in school for 2 days of in-person learning and the other 3 are at home with me. We are using @thegoodandthebeautiful and I could not be more thrilled with the curriculum I have from them. Tonight we got to go meet Audra’s lovely teacher and meet some new friends. To be honest, I was nervous to meet the other moms for the first time! Adult friendships can be intimidating and hard, and I’ve been blessed with some incredible friends... but there is always room to grow and make new connections. One of the factors in choosing this school is the community and connection I hope it brings ( I am familiar with some of the families that also go there and have high hopes for an excellent, loving culture). Mamas, with all the uncertainty and upheaval of the last 6ish months, how are you doing with this “back to school” season? Are you connecting with your people? Can I gently encourage you to stand against fear and recognize when you need the support of the people around you? Also, remember the best way to celebrate your kindergartener ( or any age, really) is with a special trip for some ice cream. Love your people well and celebrate as we head into a new season. Thanks @genuineicecream for the bear ice cream! 🌟#readingtodiscover #preschoolactivities #kindergarten #littlebrotherbigsister #school #timeforschool #backtoschool #icecreamtime #familytime #familytraditions #bozeman #bozemanicecream #imnotcryingyourecrying #momlife #newschool
We rocked Michigan lake life with these loves last week. I’m so blessed to call @magpie125 my friend. I love you and your family!
I am definitely not ready for “back to school,” but Wade is asking to do school for the first time ever. You better believe I’m going to take advantage his interest and spend some time practicing numbers with our Usborne Wipe-clean books! #preschoolathome #preschoolactivities #preschool #preschoolteacher #readingtodiscover #homeschoolpreschool #homeschoolpreschooler #usbornebooksandmore
All my babies back together! Bo is happier than he looks 😂 I picked up my kids today and felt so relieved to have them back in my arms. I love our routine and our life together and while the break was nice, I can’t wait to get back to all the things (and people!) we love in Bozeman! #preschoolers #momlife #preschoolactivities #preschoolathome #preschooler #preschoolisfun #ilovemykidssomuch
