How about Counting?
Its a little hard to explain but You could teach her how to spell her name by singing this song, it is: their was a dog who dog who had a bone and bingo was his name-o b-I-n-g-o
But you sing: their was a girl who had a name and Sienna was her name-o, s-I-e-n-n-a.
It's worked with my two daughters cydnee and Sienna, my two nephews Corey and Dylan and my cousins son Noah. It might sound daft and you do have to know the bingo song but it really works, also not ever name fits but you can tweak irbil a lot of names, i find if you sing anything to kids they learn it.
Someone posted a idea on com once I'm going to so for my 4 year old is to label everything.
What ever you do just keep it fun.

When I started school many years ago, there were some kids in my class who were miles ahead of the rest of us.

I remember hearing the story about a parent who came to the grade 1 classroom to pick up her child and found the entire grade one class and the teacher on the floor on their hands and knees, crawling back and forth. I thought the teacher was old then, +50, but she was on the floor teaching the entire class to crawl. She said that although these kids were super intelligent, they had never learned to crawl and therefore were held up in other areas.

I know it sounds funny, but if yours was a scooter and not a crawler, then maybe you could teach them how to crawl (hands and knees) just to make sure you have the bases covered.

Try patterns, my older daughter is still obsessed with those.

My son is 3 1/2 and knows all of those things as well. We have also started with numbers, even simple adding and subtracting. He loves when we do math our food. (Can you count how many pieces you have? If you eat one, how many will you have? Or if you tear your bread in half how many pieces will you have? What if you tear both of those pieces in half?)

Have you introduced opposites? My son loves it! I just ask him "What is the opposite of night?" We can do it for 30 minutes straight! And it gets me thinking because I want to throw in as many new ones as possible. He also has learned the entire alphabet in sign language plus about a dozen nouns.

you can start basic math and spelling and reading if she wishes. What about mixing colors? or basic cooking?
