    Printable worksheets and ideas to help you with teaching :) I use these sites for the kids I babysit and I used similar sites to help my son prepare for school with a severe learning disablity. Hes a Principals List student now :) Every year before school starts again we do review work from the year before and prep for the coming year for an hour or so a day over the summer. Good Luck and if you need any help send me an inbox :)

  • I used to be a bilingual teacher. In English my kids were "babies" in a sense.
    Are you using picture cards with the words? (Easy to buy or make from magazines on index cards..) Remember visual , auditory and real things taught together. Make your own books with your own snapshots. ( For Down syndrome, but will work for you, also!!!!
    There is a list of words called Dolch words...Can make flash cards for those...They will appear in all books.
    Look up online what would be helpful for a pre-K child to know..
    Read books to him with simple words..
    Watch what he does with scribbling. There are also books and sites on line that will guide you what are the scribbling and controlled steps, like lines, ovals, ect. before learning how to print. I bought a wpe-off book for my Down Syndrome child called Practice Pals.It shows how to form each letter. You can do hand over hand until he gets it.
    Good Luck!!!! :)
