Since I have a Pre-K/Kindergarten dd this year I thought I would share all of my favorite links for Early Childhood Resources. I don't do a "pre-packaged" curriculum at this age, but I use my public library for books and then the following websites for ideas, activities, and worksheets for a VERY laid back(do school when she asks) type schooling with her. Most of these sites, I will tap for ideas over the next two years before I really get into teaching her to read and doing more first grade type material.
