I don't think you need a formal curriculum at that level but I will say my kids loved Math U See because it was hands on.

I like literature based curriculum's for younger ones such as Five in a Row. The people who created it might be religious but they use books you can get at the library like Ping the Duck which are not religious. You can order a second book from them if you want the religious part.

The idea behind it is to read a picture book to your child ever day, the same one each week and focus on a different part of the story for the subjects each day. Little kids love hearing the same stories over and over so I love this idea.

I don't like the books in Beyond Five in a Row though. They would often be books my kids wouldn't want to read.

The way I would do this would be to get the books from the library not pay for them from the site and just buy the guidebook $35.00.

If I couldn't find a particular book, oh well. And I'd probably be designing my own units based on books before long.

I wish we'd have started that young.

Also if they like to do workbook work and you don't want to be printing off the Internet all the time, I'd consider getting a workbook from Sam's Club, a book store or the local parent / teacher store.
