Letter Monsters - A Unique Way To Teach Children The Alphabet

By

Letter Monsters

OK my dear readers, in my endless quest to visit every web site ever created, I came across another gem that I deem to be brilliant and couldn't wait to share with my friends and colleagues.

I found this little bit of brilliance on Flickr, the free, online photo storage web site. It's called "Letter Monsters" and it was created by Joey Ellis.

I personally don't know Joey Ellis, nor have I ever seen his work before, but these Letter Monsters are such a great idea.

I can see educators and parents alike teaching their little ones the alphabet while at the same time removing the fear of monsters that all little children seem to have at one time or another.

You can see all the Letter Monsters by clicking here.

I was fortunate that I didn't have a fear of monsters or letters when I was young, but for those who do, I think that guy's on to something.

Sandy - I love the letter monsters too! I used to teach English to 2nd graders and if I had this as a visual aid, I think I may have been able to do an even better job.
