Re: Anybody homeschooling a preschooler?
Just take the time to thoroughly answer her questions. Play will teach her everything she needs to know. I personally love Starfall.com but if you're going to use it I would suggest investing in the $30 a year membership. It makes an enormous difference. I agree with a PP about reading as much as you can, and everything you can with her. Anything that catches her interest; talk about it. Have fun, and don't stress about it.

I just feel like she's bored. She's always asking questions and wants to know how things work.
I don't want to do a rigid schedule. I was thinking maybe an hour of "school work". Most of the stuff I was going to get her are DVDs and online games to use as her "curriculum".
Once again, thank you for all of the input!
