Any suggestions on free Kindergarten curriculum? Or low cost?
You don't really need a curriculum really for Kindergarten. Just read to them, teach them their letters (upper & lower), numbers and how to write their name. Everything else will come naturally as they get older.
We didn't start a full curriculum until they were 1st grade level.
I get alot of mine through worksheets online. We kind of mix and match.
It all depends on your state laws. But I create my own curriculum which is mostly free. What little curriculum I do use, I prefer that which is created by home school families because home school is not the class room.
my suggestion would be to not use any, just have fun! play, teach your child some songs, poems, verses,
teach the child math with manipulatives, using rocks, bugs, pennies, marbles, cany, hands on learning
teach phonics only IF the child is ready, by sounding out letters and then using index cards to bring sounds together, make your own little readers, letting child do the art work etc
teach science/ nature study by growing a garden, hiking and drawing or taking picturres, talking about what they see, collecting bugs, leaves, a pet, etc
history- tell the child about his family, make a scrap book with child
read to the child , stories, poems, verses, etc
teach handwriting by get some large large paper and let him/her paint on it, draw, color, scribble, etc
