Preschool & Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum

A Listmania! list by Terri
The list author says: "After looking at many different homeschool options for my children for preschool and kindergarten, I decided to use a combination of some literature programs. There are some books from Sonlight and Five in a Row along with other great picture books I have found. I have also included some science and fine motor activities, such as Kumon. Many of the books are treasuries, since you get the most for your money from them. Amazon limits these list to 40 items, so I suggest additional books in my comments."
