DS is 4.5. He goes to preschool 4 days a week, but it is a play based curriculum. I have not pushed pre-reading skills and information on him. I feel that he will learn it when he is ready, and I think he is hitting that point. He has been asking me more and more about letters, letter sounds, how to spell words, and things like that. I'd love to start working with him on letter recognition, and letter sounds.
Do you have any recommendations for a curriculum that I can use? I'd love something already set up that I can start from. Even more, I'd love something that I don't have to pay for since we are on a limited budget. I'm envisioning something along the lines of a letter each week with activities and exercises involving those letters.
