u can play some memory games with him like place 10 different items on the tray and let him watch for 1-2 min and then along with him u can write down the things displayed on the tray on different sheets.. it will be fun and helpful also...
moreover u can do one more thing while going out to like mall, ask him to observe sign boards and other things, now take turns to ask some questions to each other based on what both of you saw and remembered... again its funny memory game u have... try if it helps him .
if u want i can give more such games to u

Hooked on Phonics was awesome for my son. We only worked on it about 10-15 minutes a day and he went from not knowing the ABC's to reading at a 6th grade level in one year - he was 5! I love it!!! The memory games are a great idea too - you can make your own or buy Memory at the store. Wal-Mart has them for around $10 or less and some come in different theme to get him interested.

Have you tried Sylvan learning. Also, if you can put in the time, practice the abc's, i know it sounds infantile for a 4rth grader, but the sounds of the leters and have him repeat, put letters together do the same, then put words together. Practice reading with him. Have him read out loud and praise him. He should be very good at reading by 4rth grade so you have to work diligently with him. He might be extremely distracted in school so home time is good for learning.
