Hello, I'm new to the group-currently homeschooling my daughter who is almost 5 in Oak Meadow preschool. I was sort of disappointed with this curriculum, it came with a parenting philosophy book (which was filled with great stuff when it wasn't wrong-headed) and a book of ideas for play (coloring, sand play, water play) etc... This was the only curriculum I could afford for her, and I'm sad that it seems lacking, so I don't think we will be sticking with it.
I am one of those who really needs a set outline of what to accomplish schooling wise or I feel anxious. I was looked at K-12 online and Connections Academy (online charters, free) but they don't seem to have anything under grade 3. I'm debating putting the kids into elementary public, then letting them decide if the online would be better for them, b/c we couldn't find a good curriculum to work within our budget... At any rate, does anyone have suggestions for things to add this preschool year? I'm using sonlight's recommended reading books for story time, and starfall and some workbooks for letters (she can write, but doesn't know much about phonetics, just what the letters look like) and she is inclined toward art very heavily.
