Apparently yesterday he smashed the 40-60 curriculum and is doing phase two phonics in nursery. Obviously I am very proud but is there anything I need to be doing with him? We read with him and do maths problems with coloured balls but he looses interest very quickly.
Knickers - I would have lots of books available on a wide range of subjects and dip in and out of lots of them. We used to do maths in the car based on food (if I've got 5 buns and I give you 3, how many have I got left) - it seemed to catch ds's attention (and you can work up to doing times tables and dividing that way too).
Do interesting things, talk widely, get more information on things he seems to be interested in - but I wouldn't be 'doing' anything particular at this stage.
What I meant was that clearly whatever you're doing is right for him.
Personally I wouldn't be doing specific "learning" stuff as such. eg. instead of maths problems with coloured balls, go on a walk and tell him to find you 5 different leaves. How many more will he need to find to make 10? If he dropped 2 how many would there be? Find 6 other leaves - sort them into matching sets. what trees did they come from.
This is just off the top of my head... what I mean is just weave the learning into some activity or other. Board games are good too.
DS 97.5) can recognise about 12 - 15 trees when we're out... if he can concentrate long enough to engage his brain before replying! And he's pretty good with birds too - the eyespy books might be something worth considering as they're fun too.
