  • I don't know if you have a Barnes and Noble in your area or not, but that would be a great place to start. They have an excellent section for preschoolers to prepare them for preschool and kindergarten. They have a huge selection of books for kids of all ages, and try your local library too. Leap Frog have these great preschool laptops too.

  • Oh I forget to mention preschool.com, and starfall.com. These two websites should be very helpful.

  • You can buy dry erase strips to practice writing his name. I do this with my son. I made one with his name on it. The others I put his name in dots to trace. Once he got the trace, we switched to writing freestyle. You can do this with letters and numbers.

  • You don't need expensive equipment or websites to teach your young child reading and numbers. They're *already* all over your house. Get out your plastic measuring cups and spoons and let him play with them with water. He can count how many spoons it takes to fill a cup or how many cups it takes to fill a jar, etc. Pieces of breakfast cereal make good counting pieces. Read TO him and point at the words as you go. If you have to buy things, go to the dollar store and get the ABC fridge magnets. Start with simple words, "go", "no", "Cat", "rat" etc. and show him how the sounds add together to make the word. Even cheap post-it notes and writing tablets can be found at most fo the dollar stores I go to. Talk to him. often. Have him sit with you while you do something, like cook, and talk about what you're doing. And read on your own. Kids learn by example, and if they see you with good habits, they will pick them up too.
