Homeschool Kindergarten American History

Kindergarten is a wonderful time of questioning and exploring with our little ones. They are years of hands on fun, reading tons of lovely books together and learning so many new things. While this can be a fun and free time, it can also cause concern for some homeschoolers who question what to teach and how to teach it.

While we like to keep things more free flowing in the early years, I do love to check a good box! Finding Kindergarten curriculum that is both engaging and free flowing can make all the difference!

History can be one of those subjects that can easily get overlooked in the early years as we focus more on reading, writing, and math. I have recently found a homeschool kindergarten American History curriculum that incorporates wonderful literature to explore, along with Bible work, comprehension and more!
