This is the first post in our FREE Early Learning Reading and Writing Helps Series:

Short Vowels
Some children pick up reading and writing quickly and are eager to learn. Others may take a little more time and can be a struggle to teach. When I have a learner like that I try to not stress out and encourage them to play more with hands on activities and games that can help them to learn in a non classroom type setting.

In this series I am going to give you lots of freebies and ideas to help with struggles your little ones may have when they are learning to read and write.
