We are going to place an Amazon order next week and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for any kind of books and learning resources. Jet is almost 4 and I am for sure getting pattern shapes and base 10 blocks. I guess I'm just looking for the kinds of things that it's good to have on hand for homeschooling. Any kind of books with fun things for preschool up through 2nd grade or so that you might recommend as well. Thanks for the thoughts!

One of my favorite things for reading is the even moore series called Read and Understand. They have grades k-6 (most books are labeled with more than one grade like a 3-4th, 1-2, or K-2). I got these off Amazon and use them in my classroom all the time. Most pre-k things I use are things you have around the house or craft items. (Like counting silverware and categorizing blocks by color) One thing you may want is a set of ABC flash cards (again, I am big on making my own with index cards, so you may not need to buy them).

Evan Moore has a lot of great stuff.

I can't even begin to make a list of things I'd buy at Amazon! I guess that's why they make wish lists?

Thanks for the tips! We make most of our stuff, too (I'm pretty "frugal") but there are a few things I really want... I mean I want Jet to have So far my list is: Pattern Shapes, Base 10 Counting Cubes, and I just added Play Money. Seems like things that should last and we should be able to do a lot with.

If you don't already have them magnetic letters can be very helpful as well. All three of my kids still play with ours all the time, lol.

I love the little bears! My kids of all ages play with them. They are great for sorting and counting.
Amazon.com: 50 Counting Bears with 5 Cups: Toys & Games

I also have several art books by Mary Ann Kohl
I have Big Messy Art Book & Scribble Art. I have a monthly art class with a group of kids and these activities have been lots of fun.

If you are getting money, I would go for magnetic money - you can post it on the fridge and do different activities with it and it is less likely to get lost.

Thanks again for all the ideas. It's incredibly helpful. Jill- I never thought of looking for magnetic money. I might make that. I was fine with printing out money but it was going to be too annoying to get a front and back and I wanted it a little realistic. Magnetic money would solve that problem. Thanks for the idea!
