  • don't buy curriculum, it's not needed.
    make a game out of learning colors, numbers (quantity, not just counting), letter recognition, pattern building, etc.


    google pre-math and pre-literacy skills
    sprout.com (or .org, I forget which) has games that feature their shows characters and teach phonics awareness and other pre-school skills.

  • I use quite a few websites & my own curriculum. Some of the sites I use are www.starfall.com www.dltk-teach.com

    My DD is 3. She can write all of her letters, capital & lower case, she can write her name & about a dozen other words. She is reading. She knows all common shapes, colors, animals, etc. Can count to 100. Basically she is much more advanced than her peers. PM me if you want my schedule/curriculum.

  • I do preschool at home but also send my son to preschool for socialization, structure, etc. I make everything a learning experience. I taught him red light, green light, yellow light and what they mean while driving. I taught him how to write all his letters and is name by having him trace it. At 3 years old he was able to write/spell out loud his name, write all his letters, recognize his letters and number,colors, shapes, count, etc. At 4 now he can spell small words, the basics of reading down, organize things according to size, sameness, etc.
