Ok, so I recently started watching my 4yo nephew. He and my niece (who's 8) have come to live with my dad and step-mom due to some family issues with their mom. Anyway, he'll be 5 in April and has had no kind of preschool, daycare or anything like that. He doesn't speak clearly at all, has no concept of sentence structure, can't count higher than 5 and doesn't even know what the alphabet is let alone how to say it. I don't think my dad and step-mom are working with him really. I'm not sure they even think about it since they haven't had little ones in a long time. (I'm the youngest and I'm 25). He's only with me for a little while during the day but I'd like to start working with him so he's prepared for school next year. My daughter knew all this stuff before she started preschool at 3 so I've never had to teach an older kid.. any suggestions?
