Helping My 3 Year Old Learn

Hello!!! My name is Danniele, and I am currently a stay at home mom of 3 kiddos. My middle child, Bella, is 3 and I have been trying to prepare her for preschool next year. She used to be able to count to 3 on her own and started trying to sing her abc's. Her ABCs were a bit mixed up after she got to about "h" but she still enjoyed it. Now, she counts to 5, but she has a lot of trouble counting in order. Instead of going from 1-5, she skips around. It's a little concerning, especially since she used to count from 1-3 with no problems. Also, I am trying to introduce her to colors, shapes, and tracing her name, but she absolutely cannot trace any letters. She can successfully trace about 3-4 shapes...and they actually look pretty good. She can recognize many things, but has some trouble making connection between color and object;ie grass is green, sun is yellow. She knows 2 colors: blue and pink. She can recognize bright green sometimes. I am not sure how to help her learn these things. I don't know if she is just not wanting to learn, uninterested, not ready or a combination of all three.
