Hello! In my quest for ml homework materials, I've found Brain Quest card packs. They come in a deck of cards attached together, and my 2.5 year old really enjoys them. The first day she seemed confused and not interested, but now she enjoys doing them daily. They are kept in a drawer within her reach, and she will bring them to me and ask to "do Max" (the little monkey featured in the cards). They are different than traditional flashcards and have prompts for the parents. The ones we use are for ages 2-3, and they exist into the teens. For now our homework routine is Brain Quest, drawing, coloring, stickers and reading aloud. I also have ML workbooks I translate, but they seem a bit difficult...
The Brain Quest series also has workbooks, but I can only attest to our success with the 2-3 year old cards.
If if you have other very young tips for homework, feel free to share.

Oh thanks for the tips! Will try both! I've been using the Oxford Reading Tree with Biff & Kipper (phonics & reading) and there is the Oxford Owl online with ebooks and lots of tips, plus some great ideas & tips for reading & writing on these websites: Growing Book by Book and This Reading Mama

Mayken: My daughter found the secret stash of ml books I'd bought at the closure sale of the ml book store two months ago and hidden away for later. Guess it's a good time for new books now, right?

Caro C.: My baby (16mo) perfectly knows what "hi5" means and readily shows her hand even when we are not showing our hand first. It feels like the first minor blossom of the bilingual seed.

Adam Beck: Nice, Caro! Give her a high-five from me! And I look forward to hearing about many more happy developments to come!
