I know this may not exactly qualify as homeschooling but thought i'd give it a shot. I had planned on putting my son in some kind of pre-k /mother's day out with a curriculum so he'd be prepared for kindergarten when he's 5 (turns 4 thurs). Anyway, I had him in a mother's day out program last year and he was given foods he's allergic to over and over again, despite meetings, phone calls.. to the point of being in tears, and nothing helped so now i've just decided to keep him home with me this year. I'd like any help you all could give me with at least pointing me in the right direction as to what and how to do to teach him without making him dread doing the work, but still preparing him for kinder since he'll be one of the youngest in his class. I have a kit that came with worksheets you can copy for tracing letters and various worksheets, and was thinking about buying a kit I saw at toys r us that said something like "get ready for kindergarten" and came with different learning tools like the counters, flashcards.. Any ideas?
