I would suggest you start by googling 'Homeschool laws in ______' ( your state) this will tell you if you will be limited in subjects, curriculum, hours, etc. next i suggest learning about the different learning styles and try to determing which catagory your kids might fit. http://www.ldpride.net/learningstyles.MI.htm. I always recommend, with kids as young as yours, that you don't rush out and purchase a curriculum. Instead, plan some fun learning units. Listed to what your kids might be interested in learning, etc. check out my blog http://kickbuttcrazylapbooks.blogspot.com/

How To Home School (links to your state's home school laws,  understanding your children's learning styles, different methods used by home educators with resource links / home school is not the classroom, testing resources, grade level requirements, how to create your own lesson plans, and more)

 do you know your hs law? first step!

with your pre k and kinder you can just do games, art and crafts, hands on math, science by planting a garden, looking for bugs, chasing butterflies, handwriting by painting on large paper, scribbling, coloring, read a lot to them,

1st grade- if your child doesnt read yet start with some phonics sounds, sound out the childs name, kids love that! heres a scope and sequence to give you an idea of what kids learn in certain grades( this is just an idea you dont have to follow it!)  http://www.worldbook.com/typical-course-of-study?wbredirect=1&Itemid=176

heres some english for that age if shes already reading http://www.sfreading.com/resources/ghb.html

math- lots of worksheets free on internet, but be sure to do lots of hands on for math heres a site that has lots of sites for your kids ages, just scroll though them   http://www.cafemom.com/group/114079/forums/read/14865498/Resources

I would suggest lots of supplies, the usual plus don't forget including blocks, play dough, and water color paints. Starfall.com has to be one of my very favorite places.  I just ordered a couple of books for my child from Abeka Art/Craft Amber Lamb and Preschool Bible Color Sheets which costs around $20.00. She is loving the Pre-K BrainQuest workbook and cards. The Leap Frog DVD's are priceless, we use them repetitiously. All these can be used for Pre-K-1st grade. Best wishes with your HS journey/adventure!
