Are there any websites you use for curriculums? My 4 year old seems to be somewhere between kindergarten and 1st grade level. Advice and tips are very welcomed.

Thank you, he absolutely loved it. Phonics is our biggest struggle right now, apart from handwriting.

good :) For handwriting I work on a sentene. Either a sentence that we are learning or a sentence from a book we like to ead for him to trace. I keep handwriting a reading seperate. I would read the sentence to him, let him trace it, and then either read it again or have him read it back to me. Its works well, and it makes it less frustrating. He is learning how to write the letters, learning abut sentence structure and phonics y doing these :) Soimetimes I buy the lined paper that has a plank spot on top for him to draw a picture.

Educational Resources has several links for free lesson plans and ideas, as well as some excellent curriculum.
