pre-k
DS attends "pre-k" 5 mornings a week at DH's request. Otherwise...
Math-misc. lessons as he shows interest, right now he's counting to 100, I'm thinking of introducing skip counting once he can identify numbers up to 100 on sight. No particular curriculum though.
Reading-The Reading Lesson
Religion-Faith and Life Grade 1--there is no Kindergarten version that I can find, so we'll probably go slow focusing on prayers b/c that is what he seems most interested in.
DS sometimes listens in on science, history, and geography. He's picked up quite a bit from just being in the room doing other things.
