When Ben was that age, his motor skills weren't even close to her level yet. Actually, he still can't color in the lines. (I think you already know he's in therapy from another board...?) Anyway! We mostly just did the Starfall website when he was 2. We read book after book after book. We went places and talked about where we were. I mean... things like... uh... colors, for example. He already knew his colors, so it was fun for him to learn that when you're in the car, red = stop and green = go. He was my little backseat driver and would help me decide if we should stop for a yellow or go through it.
The point is, with her motor skills being at that level, I'd also recommend handwriting w/o tears or even something like finger writing (shaving cream, paint, rice, etc.)
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
