he is 4 so at this point its really just play but its his way or no way. it was so much easier with my daughter and when she does school work he sits in and watches or tries to help but again its his way or no way. For example we were playing a letter puzzle the other day and he was taking random letters and asking what it spelled and i said nothing. jahsud is not a word. i offered to teach him some basic words. i put "an" together and told him it spelled an and he said i was lying. now he knows his letters, most of the letter sounds, numbers and how to write his name as well as all the baby stuff like animal sounds, shapes etc. he learned this stuff on his own. i dont push lessons at this age but i think hes ready to move into some basic stuff. he will be 5 in april and will have to at some point do school work. even my 8 yr old is mainly play n reading we dont do worksheets and things so its all fun stuff but when the boy insist im wrong n he is write i dont know what to do with him.
