Looking for advice on "homeschooling" my little ones...

I wasnt to start teaching my soon to be 4 year old DD at home some since she's still too young for school & she's already so bright. I want her to learn her letters & #s (regonizing them, she can count & sing abc's). but maybe some other things too. Does anyone know of any websites or anywhere I can go. or if anyone here is a homeschooling mom or anyone else has any ideas on how & what else I can teach her, I'd really appreciate it.

I would also love to start teaching my 22 mon old DS too while I'm at it, though he has a 2 second attention span LOL. So if anyone has any ideas on things I can teach him & how. I'd love that too!  Thanks!!

I just recently started to look into preschool home schooling, here are a couple sites I found:

http://www.abchomepreschool.com/

http://www.first-school.ws/

You can print a lot of worksheets for you DD to work on such as practicing writing letters and such.

Kids under five can memorize things very easily so just for fun when mine were about 3 or 4 I taught them all the states in the United States, in alphabetical order.  Then I taught them Archimedes' Principle ( I explained that it is about that floaty feeling you have in the bath tub). I just repeated these things over and over when we would take walks or when riding in the car, etc.  They all learned quickly and still know these things today (years later).  In fact, these things came in handy when they were in grammar school.

 I also taught them to play chess when they were around 4 or 5.  I took them to the art museum and we looked at paintings.  We would bring sketch pads and draw what we saw.  We listened to Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and Tchaikowsky and eventually they could all tell one composer's music from anothers.   I would ask them to listen and draw a picture of what they thought the music was about.

We played "store".  We had play food and play money and I taught them how to count out change and about money in general - ten dimes equal one dollar, etc.

Most important - we had fun.  Any time you  spend with your child in one on one activities is good.
