  • When my son was young he watched Barney. At age 2 he knew his alphabet in English and Hebrew. He could also count to 100. People can say what they want about Barney, but it is a great program for toddlers.

  • His computer. We built him one of his own when he was 3 because it was hard to make time for him to use ours while he was awake. He used to love playing the Sesame Street games on, and cognitively he jumped ahead in leaps and bounds. He'll still play on Noggin once in a while, but he's far beyond mastery of the games there. Now he's doing more in the ages 8-10 range, so we stick to more disks than websites. There seems to be a real gap between preschool and tween out there.

  • NP I agree that there is a giant gap for the ages you stated. I have not seen practice math book for over 2nd grade in stores.

  • Books, workbooks, little "field trips," and our backyard. :)
    I read to my girls all the time and taught them preschool myself with the help of the workbooks you can purchase at homeschooling stores or even Walmart.
    We would take fun little "field trips" with some friends to interesting places - the zoo, aquarium, wild reserve, Native American pow-wows (we are Blackfoot), sugaring, apple picking, and whatever was going on in our town.
    Our backyard was an awesome learning place! They learned about bugs, the seasons, gardening, wild animals (staying away from them and what they do to our property when they feel, the stars, just about anything and everything!
