This is my 1st week doing home school with my kids. I have two. A 2 yr old and a 4 yr old. My 2 yr old has done well with it so far he is really excited to be going to " school" . Tomarrow im starting to introduce the Alphabet to them and what i have planned ive been looking over and i'm thinking it may be to much for my 2 yr old to understand. any suggestions on how i can keep him involved with the alphabet learning with out going over loading him with infromation he wont understand or remember?

I have a 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 yr old. I concentrate on teaching to my oldest sons level and my younger one takes what he cans....and he is learning pretty well that way. Also I teach very short lessens and try and make it a game or fun activity because thats how my son learns best.

 My MIL got my ODS one of those Leap Frog magnetic alphabets when he was 2 and he really learned a lot just from that. He would never sit down and actually pay attention at that age, so I just pointed out letters to him when we saw them and he learned pretty quick.

So I dont need to make a separate lesson for him, i was thinking i might need to, but that would make our day crazy trying to teach 2 lessons and keeping the other kid occupied while teaching.

I don't hink you need to do separate lessons. There are so many great hands on learning activities that would be good for 2-5 yr olds. Check out these websites for some great ideas for ABCs, 123s and more!
