Teaching letters of the alphabet

For help teaching letters see this quick post.  It gives ideas for b and d specifically but those ideas apply to all letters.  You need repetition and variety, not just endless copy and trace (though copy and trace are useful too).


See you there.

Teaching Toddlers English around a Castle theme

Hello readers,

My new blog post on how to teach English to toddlers using the idea of castles is up at https://www.teachingenglishgames.com/teaching-english-toddlers

A teacher asked me if I had any materials with castles, or cartoons, to teach toddlers English. I don’t have any! But I came up with some ideas that don’t need anything fancy, and will engage the toddlers’ imaginations while they learn English.

Enjoy the post and leave me any comments, I’ll be sure to reply.
