It is better to bring in educational toys as opposed to a blackboard
Kids are not designed to sit in front of a blackboard for long periods of time. They want to play, run, jump or just do silly things. When they are young they are building up their bodies as well as their minds so let them move. To teach numbers throw a dice, show your child the dots and say the number, then throw it again and let your kid run and bring it back.
For learning to read I use the Montessori sandpaper letters.
Kids love the feel of the sandpaper and they will trace as many letters as they can. Let them, you just phonically say the letter sound, and show your kid the correct way to write the letters. Kids will learn better doing this that sitting in front of a blackboard. Buy toys and books or get them second hand from the Salvation Army shops. That way when you are finished with them you can donate them back.

When buying toys for home schooling kindergarten kids, ask yourself, ‘Will my kid learn something playing with this’ and if the answer is 'Yes' buy it. For more information about homeschooling kindergarten kids see our Homeschooling Page
