  • What you do now is follow her lead. Young kids are little sponges and they can learn a lot IF they are engaged and interested. Make it fun. If she's showing interest in reading, find games that involve reading. My oldest was about your DD's age when he started to read. We would nurture that interest with sight-word Bingo games, I Spy using words, Treasure Hunts using a combination of words and images AND reading early readers together - giving him the chance to read to me when he wanted to. If she's showing interest in math - there are TONS of games you can play that taps into those skill sets and interest. Make it fun. See what gets her attention and then offer her the chance to explore it. At that age we were making volcanoes, raising butterflies in bug cages, trying to change white Daisies different colors with food dye, etc.
