Begin with simple reading and counting when they are very young, add a little each year as the child grows, and they will simply thrive. Read to your children regularly. As they pick up an interest in the letters and words, you can start a specific reading curriculum. We use Sing, Spell, Read, and Write. Go here for more details:

For language arts beyond this, we've used Learning Language Arts Through Literature. More details here:

Try the old D and Jane books from the 1940's, 50's, or 60's. My son has aspergers syndrom and he was bored with any reading material I put in front of him, except D and Jane books. He's barely at a 3 letter word reading level and he went right to reading D an Jane. You can find them in the library or ebay.

We use Writing Strands for Language Arts, with trouble spots worked on in Critical Thinking Co. workbooks. WS is an inclusive program, so they learn spelling, grammar, etc. as they write. Sometimes it works wonderfully, other times (like tricky punctuation rules), we resort to a little extra practice in a workbook.

For reading we use library books.

I have a friend that really likes alphabet island. if your child likes stories and remembers things better when there is a story with it, you might want to check it out.

1. for early readers I like "Ring Around the Phonics". you can purchase it on line, but if you go to http://www.read-phonics.com , and go to their contact page you can order the whole program at a discount. Books and everything is included.

2. For spelling I like Sequential Spelling.

3. If your math program is working stay with it. But I like "Mathew See"

I'm using Phonics Pathways with my 4yr old son and having GREAT success! It teaches the basics of phonics and decoding as well as the rules of the English language. The benefit is he is also learning to write and spell as we go through the program.

For Math I like Alpha Omega Horizons. It's a spiral curriculum that my son finds fun and interesting.
