Letters are everywhere! It's no wonder that often long before children start school they will start talking about, noticing and questioning about letters. For parents, it can sometimes be hard to know when is the best time to start teaching your child about letters and how to go about it? When to start "teaching" your child about letters?

DIY spinny spellers and repurposing Duplo bricks Almost a year ago I made a couple of DIY spinny spellers for my kids, because they were learning to sound out letter combinations and blend sounds to start reading. The spinny spellers you can buy are all upper case letters though, and I wanted something that was lower case, so I just used a bit of dowelling and some wooden beads and some letter stickers we had handy. It worked a treat and I agreed with my older daughter's kindergarten teacher that it would be a good tool for the classroom, so I've got a box of wooden blocks that her husband kindly cut and drill pressed holes in, plus a bunch of dowelling and all the left over wooden beads from a thrift store find, to make over 40 of these things.
