Did he make the cut off to be 1st age or is he kindy age?
He's old enough to be learning to read, but he doesn't seem to want to. Have you tried talking with him and setting goals together?
If he doesn't know the alphabet really well, I'd stay there instead of trying to sound to sound out words. Has he watched starfall.com at all? Leapfrog's letter factory?
Kids all learn in different ways- I hope that the two of you can figure out how he needs to learn this!
I do think that it's good to focus on this if he'll be starting 2nd grade at a public school next year- did I read that right?
I second the leapfrog letter factory. My kids were only comfortable with a few letter sounds but after a few weeks of every other day viewing of that dvd they know them all. They're always walking around seeing thing and saying b-b-banana or d-d-dog.
