Hi folks, my daughter and I have been racking our brains for "projects" for her 4 year old son to do. He's a rather unusual child in that he's always been extremely inquisitive and has been reading for over 2 years now(she started him w/baby can read, and at 2 1/2 he could read words like excellence and boilingbrook!!). He's like a little sponge and wants to know everything!! Just to give you an idea, he can count to 100 by 1's, 5's 10's, do simple addition and subtraction, can identify all the states on a map that doesn't show the names of the states, has a world globe and can identify about 1/2 the countries on it. He puts together puzzles like I've never seen before, can even do them with the picture side down!! Talk about good spatial ability! He has had a library card for a year now and checks out books on meteors, the moon, volcanos (he loved the build your own volcano project she got for him for christmas and understands the difference between magma, lava, etc...) He's really into cars and can identify most makes, really into large trucks, reads Motor Trend (sure there are some words that he doesn't know, but he reads all that he does know and tries to sound out those he doesn't... and reads the tire descriptions in sales flyers.) She's making arrangements to have him tested so the school has time to figure out what to do with him, but we realize we may end up homeschooling him as nobody in her area does anything like gifted programs until the kids are older and we don't want him to be bored, like some many kids and lose interest in learning. My daughter has never pushed these things on him mind you... he wants to know and she goes with it. She always ignores the age recommendations on projects, because they simply don't apply much to him. He's very hands on. She's trying to find projects that are hands on for him, that aren't overy expensive (they, like many we hit hard with the recession and struggling to make ends meet and found out 2 weeks ago that they are expecting again, they hadn't planned on another one!) I'd appreciate any ideas you folks have, any links to educational websites that you've found that have projects on them. I know there are some homeschoolers on here who might know of some great websites and projects. I would deeply appreciate any recommendations you folks have as we are running out of ideas!
