Hi Carin,

My son was doing many of the things you stated at 4 and would have enjoyed Little Hands. My thoughts are if he is not ready for Little Hearts then have fun with Little Hands. It will prepare him for Little Hearts, will help him with his fine motor skills and allow him to do "school" learn bible stories and most of all have fun.

I will be starting Little Hands with my middle and Beyond with my oldest some time in July.

I would agree that LHTH seems to be a good fit for your son. Even an advanced child will still enjoy it. It will give him a wonderful year to start off his "schooling" and help get him ready for LHFHG.

My son was reading at age 4 but we still did LHTH and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Enjoy it.

My son is 4.5 and is reading easy reader books and can count to 100 and he still loves his LHTH time every day. He'll ask for it if I don't get around to it fast enough. I think you're little guy will love it! I wouldn't hesitate to use it with him. :D

Hi Carin! :D I wanted to welcome you, too!

I've used part of LHTH with my little girl (who was 3.5 when we started). She just turned 4 today ( :D ), and we will continue with it in the fall. We LOVE it, and I'm sure you'd have a great time with LHTH with your son, too. I can't imagine LHTH being boring to any 3.5 yr old! The Bible stories and activities and "crafty things" are awesome! Even though your son has some of the more academic things down, I think that he'd love it anyway. He'll have the chance to use those letter sounds he knows during the letter activity. (What 3 yr old boy won't love getting to drive a car along a big masking tape G and make the sound? :wink: You just won't have to keep reminding him what the sound is if he's already good at that part.) On the counting pages, Carrie suggests having them draw and count by 2's if they've already got counting by 1's down, so that may be something you could use.

:D Kathleen

I could just about have written your post (except that my 3.5 yr old is the oldest--his younger brother is 2)! My ds is almost exactly where yours is, and I almost went with LHFHG at half-speed for him. I think he could do the activities, and I know he'd understand the content. But maturity-wise, I'm not sure he's ready. So I'm planning to start soon with LHTH, supplementing with phonics (Phonics Pathways, which we've already started) and adding in some other things as well (occasional lapbooking, Before Five in a Row books/activities from time to time, other misc. activities). The letter activities will be more aimed at ds 2, but I'm sure ds 1 will probably want to join in. I think we're going to have a great time!
