My son is 4 1/2. He knows all his colors, counts to 15, can identify all the letters of the alphabet and numbers 1-10. He knows all of his shapes including octagon and pentagon. He knows his full name as well as mine and DH. He knows the city we live in and the street we live on. He is fully potty trained and can dress and undress himself. He is sounding out letters and words almost evertime he says something, they may not always be right but he is definitely making a great effort. Like he will say ca- ar or ta-oy. The problem is getting him to write his letters and words without the help for erasable flashcards. He can trace them all very well but can not write them on his own. He has never been to preschool or daycare and only has one more year before I can send him to preschool. I plan on getting more educational material to work with him on but I was just unsure if I was missing something he should be learning.

I used a big Everything You Need to Know Kindergarten workbook. Writing is learned by repetition. So they start with straight lines, diagonal lines, curved lines. I worked on each letter upper and lower case. We did one letter everyday. You trace the complete letter, you trace the dotted line letter and you write the letter...many times. I also went online and got his name on a printing worksheet and made tons of copies of it and he did those everyday too!
