october kit

The first of a new month is always exciting at The Hoggatt Homeschool. Why???? Because our monthly preschool curriculum kit from Funshine Express arrives!!!!! SCROLL DOWN AND WATCH FOR FREEBIES!!!!!

I am so excited to be using this curriculum. This is my 5th year with the program and it just keeps getting better and better. I was recently selected to become an affiliate blogger so I do now get a discount on the kits. However, I would use it regardless. They offer several kit options including an online print your own, art kit only, and several other age category kits. We use the Firefles kit which is targeted fro ages 3-5.

So, what’s in a kit you may ask!

Here are some snap shots of our October kit! Also stay tuned for some FREEBIES for ALL!!!!!



This month’s themes are “”Hat’s Off To You” where we will learn about different community helpers and jobs. Also, “Web Of Wonders” which will be the Halloween holiday theme but focused on all things spiders which I know the boys in my house will LOVE!!!!

We will also focus on the letters D,E, & F. As well as the numbers 4-6. Each month focuses in on a different color/s and shape. Orange and Black are the colors for October which are appropriate!

The shape is Triangle. For my readers I am including 2 FREE fun printables to help in re-enforcing the triangle!

Also you can choose between a monthly workbook or separate practice sheets. I like the workbook style so that the parent can see the progress their child is making from month to month.

Funshine Also offers FREE PRINTABLE EXTRAS for each month!
