Keep your kids learning while having a blast this winter break with these great gift ideas that build spelling skills. Spelling like math is one area of learning that benefits not only from understanding how it works but from plain old practice too. In addition to a few of these fun games to work on spelling, giving your child a lot of opportunity to write is important. Letters, thank you cards, and holiday dinner menus are all great ideas for this time of year. Make paper and other writing materials available to your child every day!
