My son is 4 (turned 4 in December) and I think he is quite behind in his alphabet skills and writing for his age.
He is a very active child and just doesn't have a long attention span at all which does cause us problems when I am trying to teach him
He knows his numbers to read and write up to 10 and he can write his name, but doesn't know hardly any letters to look at. He loves me reading to him but I just don't know what plan of action to take to get him started. He has also got a thick Jolly Phonics book that he enjoys going through but nothing really seems to stick!
I haven't a clue what stage he 'should' be at but I am sure my daughter was more advanced at this age, but then she was easier to teach LOL!
The best way I find to teach him anything really is to get out his Aquadraw mat and use that so we can just sit on the floor and it is more 'physical'
Apart from that, I just don't know how to go about teaching him, like should I just do a few letters at a time?
Hoping some of you fellow parents won't mind sharing some tips with me!
