Education Giveaway CLOSED

Especially during their first 5 years, I work a lot with my kids on their numbers and letters while they’re still home with me.  I print single sheets off the web when I can and make up plenty of learning opportunities on the fly.  


I was impressed, though, when Amy Schwary, a mom at my kids’ school, introduced me to her kindergarten readiness program, Pre K Scholars, which has all the lessons you’ll need to prepare your little one for kindergarten on one DVD. I think Pre K Scholars is absolutely great for parents like me who like to work on academic skills with their children.  My 4-year-old daughter absolutely loves it! Another friend is an elementary teacher and she uses Pre K Scholars with her class of Jr. Kindergarten students.  There are also many families who have already adopted Pre K Scholars as part of their homeschool curriculum.  


Here’s more about it:

“The Pre K Scholars DVD for computers is made up of 22 animated, interactive, phonics-based lessons that collectively meet or exceed state standards for kindergarten preparation.  This preschool curriculum, licensed for homeschoolers or single classroom use, makes learning a joy for parents and child. Twenty-six multicultural Scholarville characters like Addy the Acrobat introduce themselves and teach concepts that begin with their letter. For example, Addy introduces “Adding” and “Address.” There are also…

150 + printable lessons covering:

    • Phonics
    • Fine motor skill development—print as many practice sheets as you need
    • Language arts
    • Early reading
    • Numbers and Math—print as many practice sheets as you need
    • Handwriting—print as many practice sheets as you need
    • Science
Check out this short introductory video:


One Pre-K Scholars Curriculum packet will be given away to a lucky Kid Focused reader, market valued at  $39.99, but the real value is PRICELESS. The kit includes the DVD, 52 animated Phonics Cards, and 130 Guessing Game cards for beginning sounds.

  44. Christina Haley says:

    I think the best thing I can do to prepare my little one for school is to teach her routines. Regardless if it is bed time or cleaning time, by having that routine instilled in her, then she is prepared for everything from insuring a good night sleep every night or that play time is after cleaning time.

  56. The most important factor is one on one time between parent and child. Make learning fun. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  57. I think just getting your child used to words and letters, mostly through books, is the best way to prepare them. Thanks!

  58. I think knowing the basic rules of school helps prep kids the best for kindergarten.

  59. Elizabeth says:

    Spending time teaching them everyday using regular activities such as counting steps, saying what colors things are, pointing out numbers & letters, etc.

  60. Parents spending time teaching.

  61. I think spending time with your child reading is the most important thing. If a child loves to read everything else will fall into place.

  62. Knowing how to use basic classroom tools, such as scissors and crayons. Knowing how to wait their turn. How to sit quietly through a story without interrupting. Being read to everyday. All of those things are important for children to experience before starting kindergarten.
