While we have not personally used Erica's complete program delivered via this format, Katie from Katie's Nesting Spot has used pieces of it. We love that Erica's curriculum is cross curricular and addresses different learning modalities. We also think it's very age appropriate, incorporates high interest subjects for young learners, provides a variety of activities each day, and is well thought out...lesson planning done, who doesn't love that!

What to Erica's customers think? One of our contributors Maureen from Spell Outloud purchased the curriculum and has this to say about it:

"I am very pleased with my purchase of Erica's preschool letters curriculum. As a busy mom, this curriculum saves me time from having to search the web for letter printables, creating mine own printables, or even coming up with ideas. Erica provides enough options for each letter that I can pick and choose which activities I want my daughter to do. She even supplies a lesson plan, book suggestions, and Bible verses to go with each letter. I do supplement the curriculum with letter crafts from Totally Tots and No Time for Flashcards. They all compliment each other nicely and make my job so much easier. My preschooler is loving her new "school work" and I love that we have a game-plan."



To Enter:
Visit Erica's blog Confessions of a Homeschooler and tell us which of her letter units you like the best. You can access them through her Alphabet Posts label or use the drop down menu above her header to click on specific letters.
