Hi! I'm not quite sure what to do with my son! I'm spotting some "asynchrony", but maybe I am just slightly paranoid now!

He has great number sense, without much "teaching". In a random conversation in talking about ages I said someone was "almost" 45 and he said, oh, then she is 44! He can count to 100, knows what numbers come before and after. We have not tackled or tried skip counting yet.

His phonics has been spotty until this year. We started with a Montessori approach when he was 2. He went to a Montessori school 2 days a week. We played a lot of sound games. He only became interested when he was 3 and his 2 year old sister was answering for him. We have been trucking along in SCC though. He can do the workbook pages fairly easily. His handwriting comes easier than it did for his older sister, but he pretty much despises coloring. We plug through and I often help him by coloring the page with him. My confusion, problem is this: He consistently calls "c" "d". Even after we have been through review letters and just saying that "d" is, D, I can pull out "c" and he'll say "d". On the other hand, in the workbook pages if he has to say which sound a picture begins with, he can circle c correctly. (since it is usually multiple choice) He also has trouble with p, d and b. (interchanging them all). Then, one day I was working with my older daughter on math and he was playing with the letter tiles on the whiteboard. He spelled his name and then randomly decided he wanted to spell his cousin's name (Max). He did, all by himself! He also has no trouble rhyming.

We just finished week 15. I was considering hanging on and spending some time reviewing the letters we have been learning up until now, before moving on? Do you have any suggestions for our review time?
