My children know how to do all of those things, and they are 3 1/2, so they aren't in school yet. Teaching is an on-going thing. Why would it magically stop once they can do basic things?
I guess I am confused. Are you asking if we go over the alphabet and handwriting after they learn it, or if we continue to teach them other things like math and phonics, or do nothing after they have learned the alphabet and how to write their name?
We "refresh" as needed. One of my children struggle remembering the letter "q", and since they didn't learn it through the alphabet song, we write out the entire alphabet and also recite it to help him remember.
My children are doing wonderful with the phonics lessons, and both upper and lowercase letters, but are having a hard time grasping math and writing numbers. I think that this is in part due to their love of books, and the fact that they see letters everywhere.
