Learning to Write and Spell

We have loved the Tools of the Mind method in teaching our son language because it is through PLAY that he has discovered his love for putting his thoughts down on paper. Recently, after listening to Beethoven Lives Upstairs, our son wanted to BE Beethoven writing a symphony.  After scribbling his 'music notes' in his notebook, he asked for help in spelling Symphony and Beethoven. 

It is amazing how focused a preschooler can be at play AND when they are developing a skill that they love and enjoy.
