My Father's World From A to Z A Complete Kindergarten Curriculum (Bible, Language Arts, Math, Science, Art, etc)   I purchased the Deluxe Package to use with my daughter when she was in Kindergarten, so I'm reusing it with my son.  I purchased mine a few years ago and the price is now higher than what I paid.

Ambleside Online Year 0 - We have quite of few of the books on this list and the rest we are getting from the library.

Various other materials to supplement as needed (mostly inexpensive or secondhand)
