Thank you to The Good and the Beautiful for providing us with this curriculum to review! All opinions are my own!
I’m so excited to give you an inside look at The Good and the Beautiful Pre-K course book and activities! As you may know, we love using The Good and the Beautiful in our homeschool, so I thought that those of you who are thinking about using this particular course would enjoy a The Good and the Beautiful Pre-K course review post!
The Good and the Beautiful Pre-K Overview
TGTB Pre-K is perfect for children between the ages of 3 and 4. I am using this curriculum with my 4 year old. He will use Level K Primer and Level K for his kindergarten year. TGTB Pre-K teaches letters, letter sounds, colors, shapes, numbers, rhyming, and more. When you order the curriculum, you will receive a course book, four letter flip books, and an activity packet.
You will have to cut apart the flip books yourself and also assemble all of the activities. There is quite a bit of cutting involved. You will also need extra supplies like watercolors, playdough, and other supplies that are all mentioned in the course book.
Beautiful artwork and poetry is included in the course book just like in all of the other language arts courses from TGTB.
How are we using The Good and the Beautiful Pre-K?
I am using this curriculum with my four year old along with my preschool lesson plans based on books. We typically do three or four lessons from this book per week. I believe this curriculum is giving my preschooler a strong foundation in letters and their sounds, as well as practice with fine motor skills.
The Good and the Beautiful Pre-K Review
Here’s a look at one of the letter flip books. You simply have your child match uppercase and lowercase letters and their sound.
I use a latchmate bin (much cheaper at Michael’s) to store our pre-k curriculum. I keep the little games such as Hide and Seek Pets and Mouse House in little containers in the top of the box.
Here’s how I store the pieces for Mouse House. All other activities are stored in the bottom of the bin.
I really like how big the letters are for the little ones to trace. Some of the lessons are similar to the pages from My Alphabet Notebook that I use with my three year olds, but I always think it’s good to continue practicing. Repetition is key with little ones.
Overall, I’m in love with the Pre-K curriculum just as I am with all of the language arts courses from The Good and the Beautiful. I’m excited to start my four year old at the very beginning of the language arts courses and I’m anxious to see how he will develop having used TGTB from the very beginning!
