Letter Learning Review and Giveaway!




Hello Neighbors!

Are these last few days before school starts as busy for you as they are for me? We homeschool, but between having 2 trees taken down, a quick trip to Chicago and getting our windows replaced, I feel like we have been going non-stop. Now, if you have been as busy as I have been, take a minute to sit down and join me At the Fence f
or another great product!



I received a sample pack of cards from L
etter Learning! They are great! They are greeting cards, for all different occasions that are designed to help improve your child's writing skills. They are set up for your child to trace the letters! All you have to do is help them add the name of the person they are sending it to. Then there are the blank cards, with the lines in place just to help guide. And of course they have some in cursive. So your child can advance from one to another. I mean even I sometimes wish cards had lines on them so my writing wouldn't slowly start slanting!






Even my 10 year old appreciated the cards because she hates to write without any lines. Her writing slants and changes sizes without the help of lines to guide her. She was able to fill one out for a young friend we have who will be turning three this weekend. And all she had to do was trace the message already there and add H____ in the blank spot. They also leave an area for your child to draw a picture if they want to.

The one below shows the blank card with lines.



This was a really great idea! How many times do you have to sit down and write the card yourself and then let your child sign the card. This gives them a sense of accomplishment as they complete the card and prepare it for mailing. Letter Learning is wonderful!

About Letter Learning:

"I'm a teacher. Always have been, always will be. I used to teach stuffed animals using old teachers' manuals my own elementary school teachers gave me. When it came time to grow up and face the real world, teaching was a no-brainer. I taught 3rd and 5th grade for about 7 years in a high-risk, low income school before taking some time off to have Katie, my daughter.
It was on this maternity leave that the idea for Letter Learning struck me like a ton of bricks. While on a walk, I caught myself thinking about my students and their struggles with, well, everything, but especially literacy. Also on my mind were the many thank you cards I needed to write on behalf of Katie.

That intersection of thinking was it!! EDUCATIONAL GREETING CARDS. What's not to love? I get to combine 3 of my greatest passions. Education, kids and cards. (Now, if there were only a way to incorporate my husband into all of this...)

Letter Learning Cards strive to combine the ideas of handwriting and spelling practice, with cute card art and messages.

Your young child traces the pre-made words so he will never worry about misspellings, sloppy handwriting or misconstructed letters. To ensure personalization, though, blank space is always available for your little artist's drawings, and there is a designated space for the child and recipient's names. We've now added cards to help with very basic math facts. Letter Learning cards are sure to bring a proud smile to everyone involved!"

You can choose from Birthday, Thank you, Mother's Day and Father's Day, Holiday, etc. Even postcards are available. They come in a clear protective card sleeve tied together with a pretty ribbon. If you have a child beginning writing this is perfect. Or even if your child just needs some help with staying uniform or help to prevent slanted writing you need to check out their website. You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter, and they even have a blog.

Now, that I have your attention, one neighbor will receive a $15 GC to Letter Learning. Even if you don't have a young child, you probably know someone who does.
