not at the current time, but I do plan to :) I'm hoping after this baby is born, either Feb or March, that the house will be more settled into and my daughter will hopefully be more cooperative :p She's 27 months, so will be about 2 1/2 when I'd be doing it. She probably won't be ready for the coloring type things (she still eats everything...including crayons), but I'm hoping by the time she's 3 she'll maybe be able to do those sorts of things :)

Homeschooling for preschool will be fun for you and your DD. My DD did go to one year of PreK. She was really bored because she already knew her letters, numbers, etc.LOL There are so many materials out there and it is so easy to turn every day things into a lesson. Have you ever been over to Rainbow Resource Center? My DD loved those BrainQuest workbooks at that age.

I'm a little at a loss on how to get started or what to start with.

I'm not in Iowa or this group.  I just happened to see this on the little side bar.  I hope you don't mind me replying.

I have a homeschooled 5 1/2 year old as well as my daughter who turns 3 in April.  Preschool is so easy to homeschool for!  I used to teach preschool and most of the day is just playing.  Art projects, counting things in the world, reading books to them, cooking together, talking about letters, etc.  My daughter wants to do everything my son does so I just simplify it for her.  He writes his journal I print out a sheet with her name for her to trace (she can write her name see)

it's not perfect but that she knows how to write the letters is huge!  He reads to me, she pretends to read.  He does science experiments and she does too.  He learns history and she does too.  We went to the Egyptian museum because we were learning about ancient Egypt and she ran over to a tablet going "look Mommy, heiroglyphics!"  He does math she sorts things into the right colors or shapes or we might count things together and match them to the right numbers.  She really wants to learn to read so we will start working on letter sounds soon.  Letter names can come later :)  No pressure just following her intrests.

That's really all you need to do, have fun doing things together and follow your daughter's intrest!

I included the link. They are out of Illinois. They have around 40,000 hs items, excellent customer service, and very competitive prices.

That's perfectly all right. We're in another group together. Our daughters are both born April 2010.

Yes. Madalynn is my daughter. Guess I forgot a word.
