Itty-Bitty Bookworm Giveaway!!


The Itty-Bitty Bookworm

I've been blessed to be able to host several giveaways for you all, but this one is for a full year of Itty-Bitty Bookworm's preschool curriculum (a $300 value!!). Please read through this review to see how to enter to win!

Before deciding to be a stay-at-home mom and homeschooling, I was a preschool teacher. I know how much time and effort goes into planning a week's worth, let alone a year's worth, of curriculum in both the classroom setting and at home. I wish that I would have had Itty-Bitty Bookworm YEARS ago because it would have saved me so much time and energy! I have been 100% impressed with all that has been poured into this preschool curriculum and what it offers for both teachers and children.

Itty-Bitty Bookworm is a literature-based curriculum for preschoolers ages 18 months to 5 years ~ and everything you need is provided for you! The plans would work well in any teaching setting, from homeschooling, in-home daycares, or large school settings. It was developed by several early childhood educators and is extremely well-organized. The literature used as the base for the curriculum includes great books such as The Itsy-Bitsy Spider, The Wheels on the Bus, The Best Mouse Cookie, Silly Sally, The Gingerbread Man, and Mouse Paint.

Bailey's curriculum (ages 18 to 36 months) focuses on two different books each month and Bo's curriculum (ages 3 to 5) focuses on four books each month. The activities and projects for the lessons revolve around the stories that are being read with the children.

Each month of curriculum includes:
  • 4 full weeks of lesson plans for a 5 day week
  • activity sheets/mini books
  • full-color clip art
  • learning center ideas
  • long term and short term objectives
  • morning meeting plans
  • poem pages
  • shared reading ideas
  • and so much more!
Just to give you an idea of how complete and thorough the plans are, the lesson plans for the month of February (Year 1, Bo's Curriculum) are 265 pages. The plans provide an abundance of craft ideas, games, rhymes, finger plays, printable books and activities. In addition, the curriculum provides supply lists, newsletters for parents, monthly objectives, milestones for children, daily report forms for children, and observation record sheets.

The lesson plans are laid out in a simple-to-follow format (you can see a pdf sample here) and you have the option of using as many or as few of the ideas as you want. The lessons are completely flexible. When we used them I was able to adapt different projects quickly to what we had on hand, but had the great framework that Itty-Bitty Bookworm provided.

Curriculum calendars for both levels:
If you'd like to see how we used the curriculum during our homeschool day, you can find pictures and more details in a few of my Preschool Corner posts: the letter S and the letter W.

Itty-Bitty also has Bible Story Units that can be used a supplement to your curriculum or as part of a Sunday School curriculum. The Bible units include a verse coloring sheet, mini poster and 3 days of lesson plans along with other activity ideas. Tara, the founder of Itty-Bitty Bookworm, also has a blog, Raising Itty-Bitty Bookworms along with free resources for parents.

If you are interested in ordering Itty-Bitty Curriculum, you can choose to download a month of lesson plans ($20 each month) at a time or order a CD-rom ($25) of plans. Itty-Bitty also offers a 10% discount if you purchase a subscription of 3 months. Yearly subscriptions receive a 15% discount. You will get your money's worth out of this curriculum and will not be disappointed!

  • I have considered purchasing the Baily Curriculum for my son (who is 21 months old). I have reviewed the samples and love how they describe the prep work that you need to do ahead of time for the craft activities. I also love the organization of it all. Although I am not a stay at home mom, my mother-in-law is home with my son during the work day - this would be such a great program for both of us to use with him.

    Love your blog - and all of the ideas you post.

  • Ooops, my response was lost! Trying again.

    Wow, I could really use this for my 4th child turning 4 in August. I was already planning to begin officially doing preschool with her then. She already listens in to much of the bigger kids' schoolwork now, and she has more than once found a backpack, put it on, and announced, "I'm going to school!"

    What do I like? The simplicity, the incorporation of children's literature, and the option to purchase the Bible supplements-- which I would have to do! I hadn't heard of this curriculum, but it sounds like it would meet my current preschooler's needs! And later, my 5th child's needs!

    By Blogger SevenSmiths, At March 27, 2009 at 10:36 AM  

  • This sounds like a totally awesome curriculum. I hadn't heard of it before. This would be great for my littles....something that is all their own and not having to sit in on the middles and bigs while they are doing their work. They'll think they are big shots to have their own "school" LOL
    Thanks for giving us a shot at winning this.

  • I would love a chance to win this for my almost 20-month-old. It would be so nice to have some lessons planned out and ready for her to "do school" along with Big Sis.

    I really like the thoroughness, which makes planning easy, and the fun creativity of the activities.

  • Fun, Fun, Fun with learning included!!!! It's all inclusive which can be hard to find. You can study one topic using different subjects (math, science). It also has a Bible curriculum which is great! This will be my first year of homeschooling and it's good to know that there are good resources out there in one place instead of having to look at several websites for what you want.

  • I'd never heard of this before, but it sounds like a great program. My 3-year-old has caught the school bug...every 5 minutes he wants me to give him something to do for "school," but he really needs his own thing.

    By Blogger midwest mama, At March 27, 2009 at 1:32 PM  

  • This sounds wonderful! What I love about this product is that you have the option to purchase small parts at a time. I don't want to spend a lot on one curriculum only to find that my little one decides not to like it 2 weeks into it. This way you get to "test drive" it and see if it works.

    By Blogger Jennifer, At March 27, 2009 at 3:05 PM  

  • Oh- I've been waiting until today to read about the give away!! I am so impressed with the Itty-Bitty Curriculum!! I'm starting an in-home preschool next year and plan on using this curriculum. I taught elementary school and 1 year of preschool before deciding to stay home full time. I've researched TONS of preschool curric. and haven't been too impressed until coming across Itty-Bitty. That's actually what motivated me to start my preschool. It's very literature based and thorough! I don't have to spend all of my "extra" time (ha ha- what's that??) planning my lessons. It's done for me. And in a very quality manner.

    So, I'd LOVE to win a year of BO's curriculum. Then I can use the money I have set aside to buy the curriculum to instead spend it on lots of fun materials to add to my classroom!

    Thanks again for the contest!!

  • I never heard of this before but it looks fabulous! I downloaded the samples and I can't wait to try them!

    It looks very organized and user friendly. I'm thinking I might use some of the Bailey units with my son who will be turning 4 next month, but who is language delayed. They lessons seem short and attention-grabbing, very hands-on--just right for him.

    I'm going to put a blurb on my blog, too. http://smallthingswithgreatlovehomeschool.blogspot.com/

I love that your supply list is there at a quick glance. I love that SO much is included touching on so many subjects and learning styles. I had never heard of this.

  • ok - so its on a CD or a download? that is so great, then i can store it on my computer and not on my bookshelf - if you know what i mean. hundreds of ideas to chooses from? another great thing. i love picking and choosing. i am hoping to not leave my youngest (of 12 kids) out of homeschool in the fall. something as easy as this would make him feel loved like the other kiddos. and i must say my absolute favorite part about this curriculum is that it is literature based. can't get any better then that. oh yeah - another thing - i teach the littles at church - drawing from your review it's gonna work for that too - awesome!

  • This looks like a wonderful curriculum and definitely something I could use! The biggest attraction is that it is so organized and everything is right there for you. I love it when people develop curriculum with a busy parent in mind!

    Also love the flexibility and being able to pick and choose what works for your child. The learning center ideas are a plus too.

    I homeschool my son, work part time in the evenings during the week, and run a homeschool business sprinkled in between everything else. Sometimes it gets quite hectic and this type of curriculum would definitely save me time in searching for materials to use with my daughter. This would make a great first curriculum for her!

    And the Bible circ looks wonderful. I've been looking for something that's already put together like that for my son and this is great.

  • I love ANYTHING that is organized for you that helps you focus on your CHILD and NOT on the curriculum. I love that this approach is LITERATURE based because, I believe, ANY child can learn ANYTHING through a rich reading program. Having the opportunity to expand on the areas you cover from reading are only icing on the cake!

    They have clean lines, don't ask for items that are impossible to have on hand, their activities range from creative to edible (who doesn't like to incorporate some themed, yummy treat into your activities?). Creativity abounds in this curriculum! LOVE IT!

  • I love curriculums that allow me to bring out my child's inner bookworm (notice how I just assume there is a bookworm hiding in there.. grin!), and I love that it is set up by week, so if LIFE happens and I miss a couple weeks, I can just pick up and go from the week I should currently be on, and not have missed anything that will give me homeschool mom guilt! LOL!)

Since then, I have really enjoyed your thoughtful entries, which has inspired me to do even more research on the topic. Itty-Bitty Bookworm offers the most comprehensive curriculum available by providing a learning environment that kids can wrap their minds around. Having all this at my fingertips (including the Bible Story Units) makes it that much easier to invest and diversify my kids education!

  • I think this looks like a bright, well organized curriculum that would whet my three year old's appetite. She actively colours while her older sister homeschools but she needs a little more now that she's getting older, The convenient preparation of the program is a strong asset and would greatly bless this mom of three. Of course, I'd be glad to pass recommendations to other moms that appreciate a good Biblical and literature based unit too!

I am fearing my house is starting to show my lack of attention. What I love most about this cirriculum is that it is ALL done for me! I looked at what was included on the CD's and I was amazed!

  • Heavens, I could give you a million reasons why I would *love* to have the Itty-Bitty Bookworm curriculum. (And another million for why we can't afford to actually buy it right now. But I think most everyone is in that same boat with me right now!) The short version is that although I have always been a stay-at-home mom, I really struggled to learn to love it. The whole kids thing didn't come naturally to me the way that it did to my mother or my sisters, so it has taken years of hard work and prayer to really learn to love what I do. (If you really care, you can read about that here: http://samueljanae.blogspot.com/2009/02/this-i-believe.html) I finally developed a passion for motherhood, only to find that I still had to struggle to find things to do with my kids. (If you are bored, you can read about my SuperMom Quest here: http://samueljanae.blogspot.com/search?q=supermom+quest). I have been in search of a good pre-school program that I could do with my (nearly) 4, 2.5, and (nearly) 1 year-old children. This seems like the PERFECT solution. It is simple and direct (perfect for the I-can't-think-of-these-things-on-my-own types like me) and it spans the whole range of my three kid's ages.

  • My husband and I just decided today, through much prayer and seeking, we are not sending our daughter (who will be 5 in September) to school this fall. While there is great peace and relief in doing what God is asking of us, there exists a sense of fear and trembling at the thought of teaching your own child at home (as I assume is the case for many new - and perhaps seasoned - homeschoolers). On this same day of gaining peace about our direction with schooling, I just “happened” upon your blog through Brimful Curiosities. I am confident your blog will be a great resource for and my husband as we take the homeschooling journey.

    As I looked through the sample lesson, what appealed most to me (and my sense of inadequacy) was how detailed the lessons are. I was particularly drawn to the step-by-step instructions in the Shared Reading section. As I begin to look for curriculum, I know I feel more confident at the start with more detail in the lesson plan.

    Thank you for sharing your adventures and ideas and thank you for this great give-away!

  • I love the fact that the course is very detailed and looks like it will be very easy to follow. I also like the fact that it has a bible section

  • Oh my! Where to begin with what I like about this one? It looks so complete and right up my son's alley. What a relief this curriculum would be for this mom, who would like to homeschool at least two special needs children (4 total) and one hormonal teenager to boot!

    I'm a little overwhelmed with the idea of teaching my little language-delayed, autism spectrum guy who is such a sweet fella. It hurts to send him off to his new preschool where he's now picking up bad habits and even acting out at home sometimes. Itty Bitty sounds a lot like what they do with him at school but I could teach him at home instead! I'm counting down the days till this school year is over. I'd love to use Itty Bitty not only for him but for my 18 month old daughter as well.

    My son loves music and I love that Itty Bitty incorporates songs and poems into their curriculum.

    Thanks so much for this opportunity and for sharing it with the Crew as well. :D

  • This would be a great addition to our preschool class - love that it is literature based and provides flexible lesson plans (since we have a 3 day week).

  • I was so excited to find your blog. I have a 2 year old that I have been trying to set up stuff everyday from the internet and find it soooo time consuming. This is exactly what I have been looking for thank you.
