My personal opinion: let him play, play, play!!! There is danger in putting emphasis on academics at this age, unless the child shows some interest ON HIS/HER OWN! Numerous studies show that children later "burn out" in the elementary years because they simply hadn't the time to be children earlier (if they were prematurely introduced to academics, that is). He's three, relax, have fun with him and give him plenty of opportunities to explore things on his own.
