Published in The Times!



I have been very fortunate to be invited to write a guest post for the online version of The Times. Sarah Ebner writes and edits the fantastic “The School Gate” education section and is as passionate as we are about early childhood education. My post, 10 Fun Ways to Learn Spellings, is sure to be of interest to anyone with a young child. Check it out on

I would love to hear your feedback so please leave a comment at the end of the article or on my website.

Have fun!

      Hi Elaine, I have “kids” booked for late next week to use your great kit. They are very excited! It should be a great time for a review to go up as I am seeing increased traffic. Kind regards, Cathriona

    Miss Mernagh,

    Very good blog post, I enjoyed reading it. I have taught for many years and I am also Principal of Dyslexia Access. I also agree with Elaine that learning should be fun and that parents are sometimes unsure how to make learning fun. That is why I created a game, that is in schools called Trugs. We have also created a home version please have alook let me know your thoughts.

      Hi Joanna,
      Thanks for your kind comments. I too work a lot with children who have Dyslexia. Playing games is a great way to build in lots of repetition and reinforcement. You game looks interesting and is so colourful!

      Hi Sarah,
      Unfortunately , the article from The Times is in a pay-per-view section of their website. It only costs £1 to subscribe for the day and explains the steps in learning to spell along with my Top Ten Tips.
      I have lots of tips and games that you can read and download for free in the Spelling section here. If you subscribe you will get all updates and never miss out!
      I am delighted that you like my blog. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I am always happy to help :). Is there anything that you would like to see on the site? I am open to suggestions.
