I would suggest "working together" rather than testing, learn the techniques in a fun way. IPS S starter series are good, even better value Tutors e-papers beginner level 1, from this website :)

Cut them up into strips of five questions, makes it less daunting. :wink:

Also good if the parent/tutor learns the correct techniques before teaching, I remember me and DS1 making up our own techniques. :oops:

I think it is good to start early, you can always take a break, I would not be looking to make a judgment on ability at this stage.

I will run away and hide from those that say it is too early to start. If the child is able and willing let them have a go. :)

make it fun, work through them as puzzles.

build up her vocabulary too, word games like scrabble and boggle, wordsearches, every little helps!
