Well - for my daughter's preschool years we didn't really use anything curriculum-wise. We counted, sang, played games, etc.
When she entered K, however, I went crazy-with-the-cheez-whiz and bought an entire A Beka curriculum. We quickly realized it wasn't her style and wasn't on her level - it was too advanced in reading and writing, but too slow in math. I guess you need to use the A Beka k3 and k4 programs to fit nicely into k5.
Since then I've created my own curriculum. We use classic lit for almost everything, we do informal unit studies I make up, we use a lot of the DK books and will use more Usborne once her reading skills & concentration improve.
We do use one piece of pre-packaged. We use Alpha-Omega lifepacs for math. I'm very pleased with it because it allows us to do extra study or skip sections when necessary.
I have a preschooler again this year, she just turned 4 and LOVES to "do school". So - when my older sits to do her work the younger sits with us and does a page from one of those dollar store workbooks, cuts pictures from magazines, colors letters, etc.
For those of us with younger kids I HIGHLY recommend the book "Homeschooling the Early Years, ages 3-8" by Linda Dobson! It's full of lots of ideas!!
