We are trying to stay on top of homeschool even though it is summer time. Our Princess just does better when she has structured things to occupy her time. So I am always on the lookout for products that can supplement our homeschool preschool time. Because she is only 4, we are going to do preschool for one more year. I don’t want to start her in Kindergarten too early. One way we are supplementing her school time is summer school with School Zone.

School Zone Review:
We were sent the School Zone Start to Read! Level 1 Early Reading Program. This program is perfect, because I have mentioned before, we are learning how to read here in Homeschool Preschool. We are working on sight words and this 6 book reading program is a perfect addition to our summer school time.
The books arrived and my Princess wanted to read all five. I compromised and we read 3 of them. They are short, and easy for her to understand. The illustrations are bright, and the books are good quality. I read the books to my Princess, pointing at the words, and then my Princess repeated the words after me. There is a sixth book which quizzes the student on what they read. She loved taking the test after each book, and she did very well. We really like the School Zone Start to Read! Level 1 Early Reading Program. We both highly recommend it!
You can purchase the School Zone Start to Read Level 1 Early Reading Program for $24.99. You can also find workbooks, software, flashcards, books and more from Preschool level to sixth grade.
Connect With School Zone:

Your daughter is adorable and looks so happy showing off those books. I have never heard of School Zone before, but I am all about innovative products that make learning fun for children. There’s nothing worse than trying to will a child to do something that they really, really don’t want to do, and school-related things so often wind up fitting under that category, which is unfortunate. Good luck with your homeschooling this summer, learning really is something that should be practiced year-round, so I really respect that.
She loves school time right now. So I am glad that School Zone makes learning easy and fun. Also, simple for moms like me.
Your daughter is such a cutie! School Zone sounds like a great way to get kids ready for kindergarten and prevent summer brain drain. Thank you for sharing!
I like that term – summer brain drain. Thanks for coming by, Nikki. I appreciate it.
We plan to home preschool as well, just to see how it goes. It may lead into homeschooling if we are successful! I haven’t heard of school zone before but I love books that come in sets because it’s easier to teach from a series than trying to gather books on your own!
We are going to homeschool through at least 3rd grade we are thinking, then we will reevaluate. So far, my Princess is doing well. She loves school time.
This sounds like a great way for early education. Your daughter is so unbelievably cute too. Thanks for telling me about this!
Thank you for the compliment, Melissa. I agree 🙂
School Zone sounds great and your daughter is adorable.
That sounds like a really neat program. I don’t homeschool my kids but it might be a good supplemental summer activity.
