I am in the process of trying my hardest to teach my 4 year old SD how to read and count and write. I need advice on good ways to do this. She doesnt get taught anything when she is at her moms. I feel she needs to know theses things since she will start school this coming up fall!! Any advice? I checked into the Your baby can read and its 200 and we dont have money for that right now. Any other programs or books or anything that could help?
**EDIT** I guess I should have said this differently. My SD knows how to say her numbers 1-11, but she doesn't know how to count something using those numbers. She does not know her ABC's at all. I am working with her, but dont know how to approach it all.
The first step is getting her to know EACH LETTER and the sound it makes before you even ATTEMPT having her try to read any words. I suggest www.starfall.com, The Letter factory DVD by Leap Frog, and magnetic fridge letters by Leap Frog. All of the products really helped my DD with letter recognition and sound. Oh, I also have the BOB books which are great.
My advice, focus on ONE to TWO letters a week.
