Sometimes routine handwriting and spelling worksheets can be bland.
One of the best ways we've found to practice handwriting and spelling? Writing letters!
Every week, the kids write a letter to someone -- their grandmama or Mimi, Daddy, a friend across town, an aunt, or our sponsored child.
We tried something new, too -- Miss Artsy wrote a letter to her favorite Disney cartoon characters, Chip and Dale. Three weeks later, a full-color, autographed photo arrived in our mailbox! It's now proudly displayed on her bedroom door.
If you'd like to write your favorite Disney character, here's the address!:
