My son is very much into reading. Therefore, I am consciously selecting activities to feed his interest. I saw this spinny speller and also found crafty parents, who replicated this toy themselves. I decided to take shortcut and use a spiral bound notepad.
- 1 small spiral bound notepad.
- Cut the pages in 3 equal parts
- Write all consonants on the outer pieces.
- Write all vowels on the middle pieces, preferably using a different color marker.
My son loved this. He entertains himself with it, building 3-letter words and sounding them out. This is a great learning tool which can be used with the guidance of an adult as well as by the children themselves.
You can also add digraphs such as sh, ch, th, wh, ck, ph, ng in addition to consonants as your child progresses in literacy.
Pin it for later:
