Homeschoolin' mommas! Help please!! :)

Due to financial constraints I have had to pull my 3yo ds out of daycare. Not too big of a deal really however I do want to keep up with his schooling. I know at the daycare they were concentrating on learning to write the alphabet and numbers, identifying differences in pics, learning numbers by grouping objects, and some other little stuff that I'm pretty confident about activites for. Background done. Question coming up! Is there a website that you prefer or just plain ol' really like to get worksheets from? Mainly looking for letter/number activites.
Thanks for any help!!!:)

  • my advice would be to avoid too many worksheets and "seatwork" for that age. make game out of the things you want him to learn. you can ask him to find five things around the house begining with a B sound, for example, or three things with a triangle shape. coloring and drawing are good pre-writing skills, I think three is bit early for the motor skills to write letters. if you do letters, you can do them big in chalk on the sidewalk, or traced with a finger in a baking pan of flour to familiarize him with the shapes of each letter.
    sprout.com has a great interactive website with games good for pre-k kids.
