Kindergarten homeschool does not have to be expensive. If you are already working with older children in the home, you should know that there are many homeschool programs which are tailored to teach more than one grade level. For instance, there are some second grade programs which can be tailored to meet the needs of your kindergarten child.
Before you go out and purchase separate curriculum for each child, why not consider purchasing one that is user friendly to all of your children? Not only will it save you money, but it will make learning a joint venture and save time! Curriculums which are friendly to many grades will generally come with a chart that will help guide you when you are deciding on your purchase.
The general rule of thumb is if you have children in three different grades, lean towards purchasing the curriculum that falls in the middle. It will be perfect for the child in the middle, and it will be fairly easy to tailor to your older and younger children, too. If you want to give your child a head start on developing their literacy skills choose a kindergarten curriculum that is literature based. While they may think they are just hearing a good story, their brains will be making connections that will aid them as they enter the elementary grades.
