Tis the Season for Parties!


As many of you know, I’ll be throwing a little party here on my blog and on my Facebook page next week, April 4-9th. This is to celebrate my 2nd year blogging, my birthday, and to celebrate you!

In case you are a new viewer, let me tell you a little about what goes on here at Spell Outloud:


I’m a former elementary school teacher who now has a classroom of 6 students at home. My oldest is 12yrs. old and my youngest is 5mo. (This is our Christmas picture---it’s the only picture with all the kids in it). We are a Christian homeschooling family living in the Midwest. My blog has nothing to do with spelling---but is a play on my last name.


I like to share activities that I do with my toddler and preschooler. I also write an ABC column over at Totally Tots which focus on Letter of the Week activities.  Here are some of my toddler/preschool features:

Read and Do: Activities centered around books
ABC Printables
Toddler Time
Bible Crafts


I also love to do reviews. The photo above was taken while reviewing an online cooking class for kids. I mainly do educational reviews, family-friendly product reviews, and children’s book reviews.


I invite you to come stop in and join the fun here next week. I’ve got several give-aways and freebies lined up. Be sure to follow along on Facebook, as special party favors will be listed there (I’ve posted a couple of sneak previews.)

If you are visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party, feel free to look around and subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss anything! Thanks for leaving me a comment letting me know you were here. :)
