I don't know much but while I was on bed rest with my pregnancy, DD watched a lot of educational DVD's! That's why I'm starting to homeschool her in August
She learned her numbers, colors, shapes, alphabet, and sounds just by watching Preschool Prep DVD's and practicing topics with me.
I think if you're comfortable with it, go ahead and start homeschooling! For pre-k they don't learn much (it's less academics and more social behaviors) and if you take time off to adjust with the twins it will be fine. It depends on your state's requirements, do they require a certain number of hours each year, starting at what age, proof of what you're doing... For us, Arizona doesn't care if they learn anything until 7, and even then, it's just a letter of intent. So we are just playing school a couple of days a week in a pre-k/k mixture. It's nice to hear from another pre-k mommy who wants to homeschool! The ladies on this board are wonderful, they can help you out with any questions you might have!
Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!
