Can you recommend a good FREE website that I can use to teach my toddler his letters and numbers?

Ive got one year before he starts K and he will actually be 4 yrs old for a brief time when school starts. He will be one of the youngest. I need to get a move on this year. THANKS!

  • Starfall is one of the best. We just googled it. We tried "teaching alphabet" "preschool learning" "kindergarten learning" and it came up with a bunch that Kiwi did great with.

  • Personally I would stay away from the computer, get some abc/number books, sit down together, and teach him. He'll learn a lot more with the personal interaction, and you can give him lots of relevant examples like counting his socks or finding items around your house starting with the letters.

  • Thanks ladies. Thanks annq.atlanta. I have loads of tools because I have lots of teachers in our family. I taught my now 8 yr old how to read. I just thought the website would be a treat for him.

  • If you want to print out worksheets with the dotted letters for practicing printing letters and numbers try

    www.handwritingworksheets.com

    You can personalize them too.

  • sesamestreet.org is a great website for kids. My 2yr old has learned the alphabet through some of their videos. Some of
    the videos are really good. My daughter will watch over and over. Books and flash cards are good too. Make a game out of
    finding letters that that he learned that day.
