Those of you who have followed our homeschool journey know that we opt for the teaching tools that are the fastest, most effective, and most enjoyable for kids. We scored a big home run when we discovered Preschool Prep two years ago. My husband and I went into the learning experiment with hope, but not expecting the results we got.
From Preschool Prep, he learned all the colors and shapes, numbers 0-10, the alphabet (uppercase and lowercase), and all of the sight words. Of course, quite a bit of time has passed since this video was shot, and Truett has now completed Pre-K 1 and Pre-K 2 and is ready to start kindergarten – at 3 years old! Did I mention he also knows how to read now? I attribute this success to starting early with Preschool Prep.

This video from last winter is Truett showing off his skills with flash cards, demonstrating just 16 of the sight words he knows, plus counting. (Subscribers will need to click through to this article to watch the video.)
We got a late start with Truett and this system, as the DVDs recommend starting from 9 months old to 15 months old. Our 1 1/2 year old daughter, Seven, is already starting on the system too and she loves it! How We Got Our Kids Ready For Kindergarten in 1 Month is linked to Works for Me Wednesday.
