I'm new to the homeschool thingy too. I have a 4 YO who is pretty quick on the uptake, so even though she is not officially in school, I have already started a curriculum. I'm a litle worried cause I'm so afraid that I will push too hard. I have no clue what a 4 YO (or any age for that matter) is supposed to be able to do, and I am such an AR person that it will bother me to not know if she is "keeping up". It is/will be a major adjustment for me to learn to let go and just let her learn at her own pace. Homeschooling is big at my chruch, so I have a lot of experienced moms to help me out. And, they owe me big time since I've been teaching thier kids high school math for about 3 years now. :)I'm also not big on crafts, but as for art, she uses tons of washable markers, we bought 8 packs when we found them on sale for a buck each and she is half way through them. I hope they go on sale again soon as I am going to add a 2 yo to the family very soon. One of the best tools we've found are magnadoodles. She can practice all she wants erases and starts all over again. We have a travel size and a larger one that she sits down with in the living room.Oh, and I love the leap pads. She can work on her own and she learns tons of stuff.Ron
