Teaching my 4 year old his letters and numbers
My little boy is 4 years old and is in his first year of preschool . He has never had an interest in learning to color, his letters,
numbers anything that involves learning or sitting still for any period
of time. I mean this kid wouldn't even sit still to color a picture.
Well his first 9 weeks are up and I get his report card and he has
"needs improvement" in recognizing his letters, knowing their sounds
and writing them correctly and recognizing his numbers and writing them
correctly. So, I have been doing some flash cards with him and I work
with him every night for about 15-20 minutes and when I tell you he
isn't getting it. I am so serious. Last night, I strictly concentrated
on just 2 letters A and E, and he never got it. I have NO idea what to
do. I can write the letter A and then another letter and he recognizes
and can tell you which one is the A, but to show him the letter A and
ask him to tell you what it is...well, he just doesn't get it. I also
purchased a dry erase board so he could practice writing his letters
My question is how did/do you guys get your kids to learn their letters and numbers? I'm kinda stumped.
Thanks to all who answer!
