This morning Little Guy and I have made a start on these toddler workbooks by Kumon. They are for 2-3 year olds.
When Biggie was the same age I had a student who was a big believer in Kumon. Her son is in medical school now and even he attributes his success to Kumon. She bought the entire set of workbooks for Biggie over the years. Biggie is a studious kid who loves writing so it was/is right up his alley.
Little Guy is much more of a large motor skill kid - he loves to run and jump, however recently he's been showing interest in sitting at the desk. He loves to scribble and really enjoys cutting (especially his finger nails, therefore we hide the scissors).
I have seen the English versions of these books. We've done two pages of cutting practice and two pages of stickers. In cutting practice, we had to follow the arrows and cut the whiskers on a dog. For stickers we had to place some fish in the sea and some gulls in the sky. It was just enough for his little mind and still clumsy fingers. This type of activity teaches pre-reading skills. A little counting and color naming thrown in rounded out this quick activity.
