Kids A to Z: Fun Idea

Rhythm, beat, excitement. That's the philosophy of Francine Cooper, a mother and home child care provider, in Cleveland. To teach children how to spell their names, she puts the letters to a beat — something between a cheer and a song — and spells it out. "We sing about everything we do to create learning," Cooper says. "We make it fun and exciting. ... Before they know it, they've learned to not only spell their names but all of the other names as well."
