Familiar with Rod and Staff & Hooked on Phonics Pre-K?
anyone here familiar with Rod and Staff and Hooked on Phonics Pre-K? I
think I am ordering the preschool 4-5 for my daughter who will be 4.5
when we start in September (turned 4 in February). I'm not sure if it's
too easy or not...
All I know is she loves to learn and she's
my oldest and I have no idea what else or how else to teach her beyond
what she already knows. She has known all of her letters by sight and
sound since 3, can count to 40 in English (beyond if you do it with her
because she gets bored by herself after that) and 10 in Spanish (to 20
if you help her), basic simple math like 1+2, 5+5, etc., knows all her
shapes (2 years old), all her colors (1 year old), knows how to write
and spell her own name, knows how to write other words as long as you
tell her how to spell them, and can recognize simple words like dog,
cat, mom, hat, dad because of what letters are in them. I know she
would love to learn to read. I don't know what else to do now because I have only ever had experience with early childhood education while working in child care. We haven't been doing anything new and are bored out of our minds right now.
Anyone have any idea of curriculum, workbooks, or anything else like
that and already be at the level she is now? Are the ones I mentioned
good ones to start with? She just loves to learn so I don't want to
turn her off learning by making her bored, but I also don't want to be too advanced to make her frustrated.
