  • Check out ABCteach and www.enchantedlearning.com also www.Donnayoung.org has some great one to start handwriting. Remember, lines before letters and no perfection. Oh and Donna Young has some great ones for cutting also. Try doing some active school. Look for games ideas (Like simon says) for teaching. Good luck

  • Hi there!

    I think you might find this post I found on another blog helpful.

    The lady who wrote this entry is really impressive (I read her bio):

    You should connect with her. She seems to be very aware about child development and education related topics. She also seems to interact promptly with her readers.

    I hope this helps!

  • Another excellent site for beginning ABC's and reading is www.starfall.com


    Be sure to check out the workbooks (near the coloring books) at the Dollar stores in your area.  Dollar Tree has a decent selection.  You can usually find things from preschool through 2nd grade :)


    Oh, don't worry too much about them being behind the others.  Make learning fun, never force it on them!
