Rated 5 out of 5 by JenH Perfect for us
I only home school preschool, but I love the Footsteps for Fours program. My children and I love it. I have used it for three of my children already and they were academically ready for kindergarten with this program. The kids and I both love the bright colors of the pages and the variety of activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OK1243 Wonderful curriculum!
I love using this curriculum everyday and my kids love it, too! I don't use all of the ideas the curriculum provides (i.e., the teaching tree - I do my own calendar set-up instead), but the amount of lesson ideas is perfect for a 5-day a week full-day class. It works well for half day pre-k classes as well! While using this curriculum I know that my students are gaining the language arts, math, science, social studies, social/emotional, creativity, and motor skills that they need to prepare for Kindergarten. The lessons and concepts are developmentally appropriate for this age group, however, I send several worksheets home because I don't want my kids sitting at a table all day. This curriculum is easy to add your own ideas or stories to, but the kids also love the stories about Jake Martin and his dog, Max. My favorite part about the lessons is the Biblical integration- this saves me a lot of time when writing out my lessons plans, and teaches me to think about our thematic concepts with a Biblical perspective. Thank you, BJU press for creating such a great curriculum for little ones. We have lots of fun with Footsteps for Fours!
