In the last post, we looked at what a kindergartener should know in detail. Today, I will list out our homeschool supplies list so that you get a better idea about the types of resources you will need at hand to start the homeschool year.
Most of these are books and toys we’ve collected over the years and flow naturally alongside the child’s development. These were not specially bought to homeschool, but more to support learning at home. This year as we dive into homeschooling I gathered all of these existing toys and books and now use them in my homeschool session with our son.
That said there were a few new additions to our homeschool resources that I purchased specifically to target the learning goals of a kindergartener. Here is
OUR HOMESCHOOL SUPPLIES LIST

We covered different themes in the 4 quarters of the homeschool year. One resource I found super helpful as a busy mom was study units by Think Alternate.
Karishma designs well-researched and thoughtful learning materials for children. She is a curriculum developer and knows how to introduce the core concept step by step keeping in mind the necessary skills children need to develop.
We throughly enjoyed using her Birds themed study unit called Birds in your Backyard.
I would highly recommend you try her study units and learning materials. You can use code Ophira10 to get a 10% discount on your purchase from the Think Alternate store.

Thats the homeschool preschool supplies we have at the moment. As the year progresses I may add more to this homeschool supplies list depending on how we go from here. But for now this does look like all we will need for this homeschool year.
Hope this list helps you as you plan your home education. If you have any doubts, feel free to drop a comment below.
